retrofit rear head restraints

Hi all!
Picked up my Abarth 500 today (1 year after getting rid of my 500 Lounge for a Punto Evo). I am thrilled with the car so far. One small problem though...
My car was one of the ones from garage stock, and thus does not come with rear head restraints (like a fool i never checked when purchasing- doh!)
before i call the Abarth/Fiat dealers and look like a complete numpty, i just wondered if these can be retro-fitted? or am i on to a loser?
i'm not holding out much hope, but just thought i'd ask. cheers

Re: retrofit rear head restraints

Well I presume you could retro-fit if you bought new seat backs? I guess it all depends just how important it is to the OP and how mush s/he* wants to spend.

Pig! How silly of me to miss out the fact that you could swap the seatbacks over of course.

Re: retrofit rear head restraints

Sadly, in my experience, you yo-yo right back once you are better if you lose weight that way.
