    Going to Proseat in Bris next week to place an order. 2 front seats in leather start at $1650. Anyone got pics of their material and designs? I'm pretty fond of the GTS R seat layup myself.
    Just for laughs, Holden quoted $1189 for new foam and cover for drivers side SS.

    Hey @Banjo79 how did you go with proseat??
    I really want to get the GTS seats with all the extra leg and shoulder bolstering.

    Took a while to bite the bullet, but I ordered about 3 weeks ago and will get them fitted hopefully by next week. Toyed with a few combinations but ended up with GTSr style just for the front for now. The diamond stitch sections are leather though, not alcantara and feel a bit harder to touch than the rest of the leather but also has thicker foam backing, I guess to create the pillow effect, so should be durable and is comfortable. 2k.

    I've had mine in the car for just over a year now and I absolutely love them. Best mod I've done so far. Very comfortable and they look/feel like when I first bought them. My car is a daily so they get sat on.. I went with an OEM look to blend in with the OEM back seats.

    @3rspecB where did you get yours done at? I like the headrest but I’m thinking I’ll get SSV put in my headrest.
    SS being an outline then fill the V with silver stitching

    You'll get some inspiration from Proseats facebook page. Bear in mind, that every extra is going to add some cost. I'm also getting the centre armrest done in leather, white stitch, about $180.

    My mate went with SSv on his headrests for his VF2 Redline and SS on the headrests for his VF2 Ute

    i hear nothing but good things about them, personally id want the SSV in the top middle patch of the back not the headrest.
    similar to the SS in the VE.

    Yer looking at in now I think that alcantara between the shoulder blades would be a great spot for the SSV logo

    More cars than I've got space to park!
    Just to clarify, for $2k are we talking about purchasing an entirely new pair of seats, or do they do an exchange basis, or do you send them your own seats to be done?

    As far as I know it’s about $1600 for your seats to be redone ( you send them in and they send you GTS style seats back) then add in options like SSV embroidery in the headrest/seat back.

    You can find GTS seats on eBay for about the same price

    $1650 drive in drive out, keeping your original frames. $2k in GTSr style. I would think if you started getting radical with your design, or had cross stitch or coloured leather in strange places, you would pay disproportionateIy more (like I have). I would imagine you could send them your seats. I enquired about 8 way seat frames, $1500 supplied without an auto electrician wiring them. I declined.

    I bought genuine Clubsport R8 front and back seats for a great price of $1300 complete and in superb condition. IMG_20180722_130340_344.jpg IMG_20180722_130623_429.jpg

    Did it myself and just got someone to wire the passager side seat so I could use the electric functionality.
