    Default Signum 5th Seat ??

    Awright Gents, we all know this is the most formidable receptacle of knowledge on all things Vec-C and Signum outside of GM's databases, maybe you can answer this one for me: Whats the lowdown on the Signum middle rear seat, I mean how do you go about swapping that useless flip-over tray thingummy for a proper seat that an adult can actually sit on without them complaining to the UN about inhumane treatment? Where do I buy the kit to put in the space between the two normal rear seats?

    Can't find anything on eBay, the main dealer stares at me blankly, and no one on here has so far 'fessed up to fitting the kit....surely someone knows?

    Don't know about converting the centre seat mate but remember to inform your insurance that the car has 5 seats instead of 4

    Thanks, but it's already got 5 seat belts and allegedly the flippy-over-table is supposed to be a seat already, so the insurers know that all Signums can have 4 passengers and a midget sadomasochist

    Thanks Duncan; but the taxi-conversion seat is only about 2" thick - even I'm thicker than that ...and about £250 !

    If you removed the rear seats is there anyway you could fit a proper bench seat from either hatch, Salon, Estate? Anyone tried this?

    I've been wondering as there is a VXR interior knocking about that would be great if it could fit.

    EDIT: Scratch that, just though about it properly and there is no way of locking seat backs into position.

    No go I'm afraid...the Sigum has 2 individual rear seats, and when you fold down the back rest for either of them, each seat cushion slides forward on it's own, so I dont think the estate bench cushion is compatible.

    It would be interesting to see some pics of the rear with the seats removed , i know a few have changed there interiors for leather / half leather.

    It may just be simple fabrication of brackets to get the bolts to line up etc.

    Right - time to come clean. I asked the Q about the 5th seat just to see if anyone's done it yet....because I got back from the auto-upholsterers today, and this is what they made for me:





    The colour match is good, but not perfect, but he's offered to redo it in a closer shade, but I said maybe some other time, for the moment it's good enough and I wanna make use of it . He used Mercedes fabric as the texture and weave are very similar to mine, but mine turned out to have just a little more blue in it than he thought.

    I've tried the seat myself, and even though I'm 6' and 14 stone (on a good day!) it's pretty comfortable, and a hundred times better than what was there before, which was unusable. It's got a wood base and is attached to the car with Velcro, so can be removed when I want to fold the backrests down to get a 100% flat floor for load carrying.

    ....And I bet it makes the car a bit more saleable if I sold it privately, wouldn't have people turning up and saying "only 4 seats, that's no good to me".
