    Default What else fits?

    I'm sure its been discussed at length but i cant find any threads on it so here goes.

    Anyone know if the recaros from another vehicle can be mated with the runners from the original vectra seats?

    I want VXR front seats but cant find them anywhere so will happily settle for Astra or Focus or S3 seats given that they will be infinitely better than the benches i have now.

    The issues are the airbags. I looked at fitting Saab seats, but decided against it. There is someone selling Subaru seats on vec runners on here somewhere

    Yep, if you dont connect up the airbag youll get warnings and fail MOT. Someone did talk about putting a fuse across teh airbag connector, but I never fancied it

    Just called a place about sourcing recaros and they mentioned resistor wires for the airbag sensor too. seems like the norm if you change out for anything but standards.

    apart from the airbag and the potential loss of the seat heating i cant think of any reason not to purchase a couple of recaro sportsters in black leather and whack them in. they wont be much more expensive than a full VXR interior (if one ever became available).

    Unless someone out there wants to have a go at helping me put some Saab seats in? Lots going on ebay!

    Called the dealer and Recaros or GSIs are over £2k each regardless of what you choose. Managed to find some GSI seats but they aren't full leather and aren't heated.
    Is it possible to swap the heating units over?
    And does anyone know a good place that does retrimming? If so links would be appreciated and maybe an indication of cost?

    Thanks

    Signum Design seats are half leather sport seats! They look alright and support well.
