Cheers

odds are you will need to take the rails off your existing seats and mod them to take the new seats.

do a search for BA seats into E series, same process!

you will also need to get them Engineered as far as I can remember. Because its such a big saftey item you will need a mod plate for them or engineers cert for insurance. Otherwise you crash, you get nothing.

spot on gregg u will need a mod plate or engineers cert to make sure that they comply with ADR standards, racing seats look tacky imo unless in a race car, if ur going to that effort, get some BA GT seats or if its too much f**k get a ulphoster to custom make ur current seats by adding more bolster to the sides, etc

Yeah i agree with wicksy
Maybe get an upholsterer to retrim the seats and increase the height of the sides with firm sponge to give them more of a racing look

then no running around for engineer certs & modyfing rails
people wont even recognise they were stock seats

prob be cheaper than buying your racing seats and getting engineers cert :?:
