    Seats instead of bench

    Has anyone removed the rear bench and replaced it with 2 racing/sports/bucket seats.

    Therefore having 4 individual seats.

    Was considering doing this to get around the problem I'm having of finding a baby seat that fits the Astra MK4's rear bench with its long seatbelt buckle webbing causing what is known as buckle crunching.

    also toyed with the idea of building a multimedia console inbetween them, housing a dvd player, fold out lap trays etc

    Thanks

    Lee

    Maybe an issue from an MOT perspective - 3 seats to 2 seats?

    I know when fitting coupe rear seats into a hatch it has been necessary to fit a lap belt in the middle.

    If it's registered as a 5 seater on the log book you may need to change this.

    I'm no expert on MOT technicalities, but something to consider.
