    watch out for the seat belt pre-tensioners (best to take of battery for 15-20mins before and during). There is a block of wires on the undersides of the front of the seats which slide off forwards(Just lift up the clip and slide them). The two torx screws holding in the seats where a b*tch when I did them and used a breaker bar in the end as they are covered with thread lock.

    I had a complete nightmaren removing mine, the 4 bolts had to be hacked out in the end using a compressor gun, the driver side had to have a nut welded in as it just span in the joint.

    So be ready for a struggle with those bolts, you may be lucky though.
