    Keep us posted and let me know if the seats are comfortable. The upholstery place has told me that the MSE seats are worse than the series 1 redline seats..

    Did 250,000km over 10 years in my LTD. Foam & support still good but the leather’s showing its age.
    I’ve been driving the MSE for a month now and made a few weekend trips to the country. Seats have been quite comfortable, though I do share Skylarking’s issue about the glue failing on the material strip on the bottom leading edge of the sunroof.

    So i’m not the only one with the problem... wonder if Holden changed glue suppliers and now things with come unstuck (pun intended) just like when GM changed rocker arm suppliers :eek:

    My VF Redline did that too. Just pulled it off. No ill effects.

    MSE seats are very comfy on a long trip. Wagga to Bathurst return, Wagga to Adealiade return. Comfy as. My Wife doesn't like the Redline pax seat on long trips. She has no issue with the drivers seat. But she loved the pax seat in the MSE on those two trips.

    yeah my wife isn't a fan of the passenger seat in my redline.
    the driver's seat is growing on me, i wasn't the biggest fan originally.

    I don't find it uncomfortable I simply don't like them. I must be an exception to the rule that likes firm hugging seats. I can already see the fake leather taking on a glossy look. I do lots of driving but not long distances and prefer a seat where I feel more attached to the car.

    For a "performance focused" car and interior they are so far from that.

    I would get these if the side bolsters weren't foam. They need to be a firm hard material otherwise they will fail and collapse over time. My wife was telling me that the HSV seats became an issue for Holden/HSV due to their failure and the foam tearing internally.

    I don't like the passenger seat in any car.

    Has anyone looked into the Chevy SS seats (with the cooling)?
