    i cant decide mate.... not sure if a vec C is the place for Bucket seats, Maybe if they had a colour that went with your interior but then back seats may look outta place.

    I think the seats look and feel good enough without having bucket seats fitted. If you were using the car at a track day then that would be different

    I'm gonna say yes if you like them. You might want to have a think about getting the rears re-trimmed to match, and also possible your gearstick gaitor.

    They're not my cup of tea, but if you like them matey, you go for them. You know everyone will want to sit in them at meets anyway .

    Basically what Alex said!

    Will all your seatbelt fixings, seatbelt pre-tensioners and seat adjustment mechanisms transfer over okay?

    Yep, I know - but they still have to fit around the frame, or new sub-frame if that's required. Given what they've said in their ad..

    "These chairs come with a universal fitting bracket to the base of the chair, as with the sizes we can not guarantee that these will fit straight into your car some modification may be necessary, occasionally you will need to purchase a "sub frame" to fix the seats correctly.

    We do not sell the sub frames ourselves for these amazing seats"


    ...it doesn't sound like they exactly make it easy for you, so it was more of a 'heads up' for Dervdoc.
