    Default Seat options

    Okay guys, I've decided that I really don't like the leather seats in my Elite and want to swap them out. So what to do?

    The local "wheels and mods" place is doing me a quote on some Cobra fast road seats (daytona, I believe?) Now these are really nice but they aren't going to match the rest of the interior, I'll lose the heating function and the seat airbags will obviously have to go. I will also not be able to tilt the seat as the aftermarket frames only have adjustment for legroom.

    So not ideal

    I could get VXR seats but they are extremely rare and when they do come up, sellers want crazy money for what are essentially a set of knackered and dirty old car seats.

    Or I could go for the SRi seats. But they might not really be much better...?

    What are your thoughts folks?

    I just don't like em

    Anyone with a facelift SRi with a mint interior want to do a swap? Mine are almost like new so would want equivalent condition. May as well go to someone who will like them.

    I had the cloth SRi seats in my Astra and I thought they were lovely.

    Sounds good mate, are there any problems at all with the seats (stains, burns, sags etc)? Mine are almost as new.

    I would swap the door cards with you too.

    hi m8
    no problems at all with the seats only had them a year (no stains,rips or burns) and would get a good clean before the swap.
    only problem is that i done the rear center air vent convertion to the arm rest.
    but i could put it back to standard if i could find the storage bit or buy one.

    before we go any further it is for a hatch with black trim,
    dont want to get up thier and find nothing match our veccy's

    Yeah, this is a hatch with black trim. I don't really want to swap the arm rest to be honest as I'm happy with that bit. But if you wanted one in the fake leather like mine I don't think they are expensive on ebay.

    thats fine m8
    what colour is the leather so i can see if i can get one to match.
    also how much would you want for the swap.
