    I would go for it under warranty, nothing to lose

    I would think that would definately be warranty within the first year but you might have trouble at 18 months old, well worth a try though. I have noticed a few VXRs lately and they do seem to suffer from this.

    Upholstery/trim is only covered for the first 12 months, but give it a try and see what they say. If the car hasn't done many miles then your case will be even stronger.

    "They all do it"...

    It's noticable if you have only one errm largish person driving, and the other seats don't get used much. Same thing on the previous cars, though.

    Mine went after 18months, but dealers changed it for me still. Duncan is right it only covered for 12months.

    had this occur on my beloved [and later stolen...] RS turbo escort. i took both seats out, split the base [whose wing had collapsed] from the backrest and peeled back the cover. the sponge had split. i araldited it back together and used the driver's side sponge in the passenger side [where the repaired part wouldn't get too much stick] and vice versa. took me most of one day over a weekend. i remember sitting in a Recaro in my living room watching telly!
    may not be this easy in a vectra C due to air bags and seat belt pre tensioners etc...
