    mk5 seats in my mk4 estate

    was made an offer yesterday i couldn't refuse.a mate offered me the seats outta his mk5 astra for £50 as he got a set of leathers.so it was out with the old & in with the new.

    the old seats


    the new seats








    front seats went in no problems but had to mod the rear a little.
    let me know what you think.

    had to swap the metalbracket in the middle of the rear backrest that makes the back fold down & mess with the centre seatbelt mount.other than that it was a easy fit.

    the plugs were different so had to swap the plugs off the mk4 seats onto the mk5 seats.

    tell me about it.my old ones were uncomfortable & didn't hold you properly when cornering abit fast.it feels like im driving a different car now.the mk5 seats feel comfy & sporty.
