well you can but they have to be ones that allow for the airbags to go off without hindering the performance, which just so happen to be very hard to find, but then why would you want seatcovers, unless your into playboy bunnies etc :o

side airbags arent standard on XR's are they are not a "higher class" than futuras. The range splits and goes Either Futura or XR for very similar money.
IE. BFII XR6 6 speed auto RRP $39990 +ORC
BFII Futura 6 speed auto RRP $40790 +ORC
Side airbags are std only on
Futura, Fairmont, and Fairmont Ghia.
They are a $600 option on XT, and on XR Variants.

Note im talking BFII here, BA was very similar but there may be slight differences

XR and XT is an option!
