VT S-Pack S2
Morning everyone,

BN PAIR RED STITCH BLACK ADJUSTABLE RACING SPORT SEATS (eBay item 380298496107 end time 10-Feb-11 20:45:28 AEDST) : Cars, Bikes, Boats

I found these and i would really like to buy them for my VT S-Pack i personally think they look great and there not over priced either.

Question is are they easy to install? And has anyone had these types of seats in there VT/VX?

Things like will they sit well and will the drivers electronic up and down feature work?

My old man used to have a VT S-Pack about 5 years ago, he put OBX seats in there, looked great but the passenger one sat really really high up :S

Feedback would be great :) Just click the link at the top to sus them out.

Thanks everyone!!! :rofl2:

unversal means you need to get someone to drill the holes and weld the tabs and whatever it needs to suit your car

Make sure the seats are compliant with relevant ADR/Australian Standards. I'd also suggest you will get exactly what you pay for as far as quality is concerned.

btw, one of the reasons why they sit high is people often mount them on the standard rail which is like putting it on 2 rails...

some seats are cheap crap that starts to sag and wear out at the bolsters quick

$150 per seat... could get lucky

Quality is always a factor, but as said, you get what you pay for.

Nothing to do with the quality, but I thought this statement was funny.

"JTM-AUTO deal scouts procure in bulk directly from factories and distributors around the world at heavily reduced prices. Which means there are no middlemen and as such we are able to pass all the savings to you."

Aren't THEY the middlemen?
