Fine in a track car,but not for everyday use,especially if your cars lowered?

Personal view....

I dont belive in Bucket Seats, as i think they are only good in race cars, i mod my cars, but i still want the comfort from the seats, so i never put bucket seats in any of my cars, but retrim them instead...

When you say retrim, do you mean new padding as well?

As mine is a high mileage car and I think the previous owner was on the large side, the drivers seat isn't as comfy as the newer courtsy cars I've had and also there's a fag burn in the alcantara (been patched up and not realy noticable) so I would like to know the cost as well please

Just recovered... I've only got alcantara, so maybe half-leather with a bit of green pipe would be nice (green to match the car)

i had my last car done at Mnchester and its around £1k for full Leather or half Leather half alcantara, and now i can have Rage color leather or Carbon leather for around £1.5k, that for both front seat and the back seat, and you can have piping or Logo added included in the price...

I've seen the seats Mat has in the monster...i must say i did like them, not to over the top and fitted in well in the IS cabin...IMHO of course! Good choice Mr.C...

But Whitie..i think that those Cobra ones in your link would be a bit to over the top for the IS!

If I did get them, they wouldn't be in red!! The seller is only in Southampton, whats about 1/2hr from me, So I'm going to have a look this week end.

May see what they have in just plain black, they also said £320 to retrim the back seat.
