Alright, just a quick question. I know the front seats out of a sedan will fit in the wagon no worries, just will the back seats fit? I don't see why not, has anyone actually done this before?

Reason being I've got a set of the half leather/half velour seats and wouldn't mind putting them into the wagon instead of letting them go to s**t in the shed..

I presumed that would be the case, because they'd have to be stronger brackets to compensate for not having the parcel shelf to rest on/ put alot of weight on.

Oh well. The seats will have to wait until the next e-series I get

Going from SWB to LWB wouldn't work completely. Seats can be made to fit, but you'll need to get bolsters retrimmed.
Need to grind the pins off the hinges of the SWB seats and your existing seats, then swap them and bolt in from what I've been told.
Can swap LWB bolster covers onto SWB bolsters, the extra fabric just folds in behind the bolster, but the other way probably wont work too well, hence getting them retrimmed.
Can't remember what the deal with the seat base is on EA/EDs...
May fit straight in?
