hey guys, i have a ba xt, and am looking at putting in higher series ba seats and door trims. if i get seats with electric memory, is it hard to connect that up? (dont really mind if i use it or not but if its easy then why not) also i only have front power windows. is it possible to change the arm rest to suit the non power, and drill holes for the winders? or would i be better off to put in rear power windows? also if the seats come out of a crashed car can the side plastic trims be replaced? usually they crack in an accident. and if the side airbag has deployed, can it just be stuffed back in and the seam re stitched? my car doesnt have side air bags so doubt they would be able to be used anyway.
thanx all for your suggestions

Depends if you want to do it properly!!
If you want the mmemory function to work you willneed to get the body loom, dash loom and mirrors.

Have a look for a thread by lukeyson as he is currently doing this to his xr8

Its in the interior modifications forum

There you go, that should throw you off the idea for a while!

Seats can be repaired, the side airbag is only like 150 to replace, slap it back in there then get a motor trimmer to restitch the seat and your set
