    Dont know if they make them specifically for the car or not, but why not make your own??
    How much higher do you want to go??

    Depending on the length of the bolt holding the seat to the floor, just put a nut between the seat and the floor, making sure there is still enough of the bolt to hold it safely and firmly to the floor. Do this on all 4 fixing brackets and bingo.

    Someone else may disagree with my "Bodge it" way of doing things, but used to do it on older cars when fitting aftermakert seats to them and never had any problems with it.

    It all depends how long the bolt is, or if you could get some longer bolts, i dont know if the bolts that hold the seats in are any different to normal bolts or not.

    Aren't the seats adjustable in hight - I thought it was a standard feature in Astra's...

    I was thinking that too! They don't adjust for height with a lever?
