my original gti seats although looking ok, are passed there used by date. The leather/vinyl and sticthing is quite fragile. i have been shopping around for some aftermarket replacements for a while now as recovering the old ones is expensive process. i have spoke to an engineer who will be doing my gti6 conversion, he recommended i use something that has an ADR tag or im wasting my time. most of the seats i have been looking at around the $400-500 mark each are not ADR approved. i did find some nice items but at @ $900 each its not going to happen. im trying to keep the as recliners so i dont lose the use of back seats and to keep it legal.
last week i came accross some budget seats on sale in the local autobarn catalog and im thinking fot the money might give them a go. has anyone tried these before? from what i have found out they are a replica r34 skyline seat. if there no good for the car i will probley put them in the shed or put them to use somwhere else. i have seen them and sat in them and the feel very comfy. im sure a long drive might change that, but looking for any feed back before i lash out? they are on special until the 28th of april for $149 each.
