    New seats installed today.

    Decided I'd like a change of look for the interior. At present it's got heated black leather and whilst I do love the seats I was always taken with Oxblood seats. Anyway I finally found a decent set yesterday and I've just finished installing them.
    Here's how it looked before



    Here's how it looks now



    The seats look very red and that's not exactly how they look in the flesh, they are deeper than that. Also I've just spent over 5 hours cleaning them so they do tend to show up the black ones which haven't been touched in ages. If I spent the same time on the blacks they would look just as good IMO.

    Before someone says anything about the door cards, I have plans to get the present ones covered in matching leather with a little extra touch

    Very nice mate, very BMW M3 esque.

    Personally think you should change the handrake lever and gear knob to silver to finish it off.

    Ok here goes for all the comments.

    Wood effect pieces are being changed for carbon pieces to match the steering wheel, I've already got all the bits, just need to finish the dash off as I want to fit them all together.

    I've had a load of PMs already about the black seats, I'd offered them to a good mate who I owed some favours to but he's declined as he's not in a position to buy them at present.

    I'll be posting them on the For Sale section later tonight.

    DANNY my man, just the person I was looking for.

    I remember you fitting the GSi seats in your car. Did you wire up the side airbags and if so did it trip the airbag warning light? Did you ever fit those sensors in the doors for them? I need some advise mate, need to figure out how to get the side airbags functional and your the only person I know who's done it.

    Oh and I'd love the lapstrap mate, thanks for the offer, Ill buy it and pay postage etc no prob.
