I will be in the market for leather seats soon and i wanna know my options. I want comfort, and looks.. they need to be a dark colour too (ie dark grey or black) and i wana try and avoid modding my seat rails.

Can anyone help me? What will fit?

I saw and NC on ebay for sale and the pevious owner fitted EB ghia seats in the car, gave the interior a sporty look, with the sporty front seats, leather/velour trim and see through head rests - looked pretty good.

i got full DC III LTD leather in my NC III :P .

front seats are NOS as well. :P

Very rare s**t to find in good nick. you would be better off buying ED ghia seats as they are a bit more common but not as good as the LTD seats :P .

Have you considered velour? The velour is also very comfy as well, and as a daily driver, i love the velour in my DC I

Just Jap has some bride and recaro copies in leather, very nice to sit in, and ADR approved. Just incase you dont want to go along the same lines as a lot of people. The only downside is that they dont just bolt in, you will have to drill some holes in adapter plates etc to make them fit onto your exsisting rails

which voids that ADR compliance unless u get them engineered

You are also required to get seats engineered if you remove them and put them back in too... so either way you are up for engineering costs :)

how would they know you've done so?
aftermarket or different manufacturer seats makes this bleedingly obvious.

Good question, however from what I remember isnt there a paint marking on the bolts? There was on my EA
