Any Front seats from a EA thru to ED will bolt into your ED. Anything else will need your rails attached as fair as I'm aware. I don't think EF or EL seats will bolt in.

What front seats do you have atm? The EA-ED Recaro type seat are pretty comfy. ;)

Cheers

For a bolt in fitment, you want something from a fairmont or fairmont ghia, or even a fairlane/ltd, they will be much more comfy than what you have. The velour is also a lot harder wearing than the cloth gli seats.

I reckon the recaro style seats are the best, but i recently had my fairmont drivers seat repaired & fit the set into my mums futura, and it feels like a new seat. It's comfy, didn't cost much to have the foam redone either.

Cheers

I have to agree that the Recaro style seats are tops. Big blokes fit comfy too.

These seats can be found in Fairmont Ghias and XRs.

Cheers

My mate Tom will vouch for the big blokes find them comfy too, in regards to the Recaro's. In the Xr's they were in cloth trim, Fairmonts Ghia's had two options, leather & velour or full leather.

Excuse how dirty the seats are, pic is to show trim differences. From left to right: Eb S1 Xr8 in cloth. ED Fairmont Ghia leather & Velour, EB s2/ED Fairmont Ghia full leather trim. Eb Series 1 Ghia's had a darker trim job in the same style as the middle seat, I think BenJ has these in his ride. Eb Series 2 Xr's had a cloth trimmed seat like the left one in lighter colors.

Cheers

Not a problem mate. The s1 seats are hard to come by, be prepared to be patient in finding a set.

Cheers

I thought so, do you have a pic handy to put in this thread or should BEAR80 just check your gallery pics?

Cheers

Last time I was at PnP, there was an ED Ghia with full leather seats.
