hi, i would like to swap my seats for bucket seats. Will BA seats go into an EF? And are EL to AU XR seats good enough buckets to do a swap with?
Dont really wanna go down the $500 recaro path, just sumthing snug and comfy.

Thanx

AU & BA seats won't bolt into an EF/EL floorpan - you'll be looking at over $500 to get them fitted after you've bought them anyways! :?

You will need and enginner's certificate so the seats comply with the safety standards.
