    Yep, the SRI is a "sports" seat, so bigger bolsters.

    Pretty sure it would Andy. IIRC someone retro fitted the heated pads for the seats so I can't see it being a problem putting them on new seats

    You'd need the heater pads for the sri seats as they are a different shape to the elite ones.

    one seat, not sure. but classic car services do a full retrim (seats and door cards) for £1150, so that gives you an idea.

    Any particular reason you want an sri seat in your elite?

    He's probably falling off on the roadabouts, I'm so glad I changed from Design Seats (same shape as elite) to Sri, they are so more supportive
