Im pretty sure the Ba seats wont bolt in, correct me if im wrong? they are also electric would could be a problem.

why not try some after market seats? sparco or cobra etc... this bloke had the same idea as you but decided on going for the after markets. turned out pretty smick!

Au seats fit e series though don't they?
I am thinking electric leather would be a worthwhile upgrade!!

unless that is batman's ute, i think those seats look ridiculous.

another option is going to a place that does interior stuff and getting quotes on re-shaping and retrimming your seats, i had a quote not long ago to re-shape, and retrim front and rear seats in leather and it was around $3000... not bad when you think the front seats from a BA will set you back over 1000 and they'll need to be re-trimmed anyway
