Smile Thinking of fitting these seats in my HGT.

Evening All.

I'm thinking of fitting these seats into my HGT as the drivers seat is a bit tired!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BLACK-BLUE...80958750801%26

I've done a search but couldn't find much so does anyone have any advice?

I'm planning to bolt these to the existing frames?

Re: Thinking of fitting these seats in my HGT.

You are most likely have to use your existing seat runner into them
My mate had this seats fitted into his corsa and they wear out easyly
Why dont spend a little bit more and get alfa 147 leather seat fitted?
I had a nice set of punto leather black and blue but i sold them on wednesday!

Personally, I think those look disgusting compared to the hgt seats. Plus they scream 'boy racer'.

Leather seats look a lot nicer and are probably more comfortable.

@turbo_pib - How much you get for that interior (if you don't mind me asking)?

i agree the hgt interior is much classier compared to those boy racer seats
but if driver seat is worn i think a leather upgrade would be nice
sold them to a chap in lancaster for £220

Re: Thinking of fitting these seats in my HGT.

I meant the linked seats.

I thought the blue/black of these would match the rear HGT seats.

Others I noticed on the bay were:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3707000706...84.m1423.l2649

I'm only after something basic as this is a cheap weekday run around car for me.

Just remember your HGT Will have side impact protection airbags built into the side of them removing the factory seats will compromise the safety systems of the car

a lot of people on here have done this modification and as far i know front seats fit with no issues and back needs a bit of work on modify a bracket
my seats are in fair condition but have a look about if there is some for sale near you
and im guessing that your hgt has no airbags?

They have airbags in the seats.

I've found some on eBay and one thread with pics of them in a punto and I think they look great!

airbags are a problem
you could find a set of 147 seats with airbags and connection under seat are problably the same but is highly dangerous to have an airbag that is meant to be for another car
im sure someone else would be able to further assist you on what to do

Re: Thinking of fitting these seats in my HGT.

I agree it would be madness to connect a different airbag!

I've thought about this last night and this morning with the wife and decided I'm not going to do anything. I will keep the Punto till christmas then buy a new SLK.

Thanks for the help!!
