Legal depends on a couple of things.

    Seats need to be ADR compliant. Some are & some are not.
    Need to be on either factory seat rails or engineer approved modified rails & engineer report/mod plate

I have been considering a set for my mighty boy as the current seats are stuffed, but it's so much work to fit any other seats to the rails, that I'm considering stripping them down to the frames & welding in some metal to support new foam & padding them up like the EB/ED recaro's, then getting them retrimmed. Depending on what I get them trimmed in, will cost about the same as fitting something else.

Cheers

If it's not ADR compliant you won't be able to use it.
