Have an Au series 2 with broken and removed drivers seat, no luck finding any decent Au replacements. What other seats will fit in place? Without the hassle of major modification.

EF/L Fronts can be swapped over to the AU rails reasonably painlessly as well, just unbolt all the cushions from the frames, plastics etc and swap over.. but I doubt you'll really want to go back a step. It is still an option though if the AU rails are still ok.

Awesome, all the threads I have read so far no one has mentioned swapping the cushions and plastics over. Was considering putting ba seats in... Didn't want to chop and modify the rails to swap them over.

You will need to modify the ba rails to fit into au..

Or like I did in my au ghia. My drivers ssat was s**t so I got a good pasenger seat and swapped the base over to the driver's side.
And the back sponge over aswell.. I did have to dismantle and re assemble
the seats though
