stilo racing seats?

hi I was thinking of getting a pair of racing/bucket seat for my stilo 1.2 active.

Just wondering if this is a good idea with regard to the ocs sensors in the stndr seat etc.

my airbag failure light is on atm no idea how to fix it if anyone can help with that while they are here ^^.....

anyway is it a big sacrifice to put new seats in?
will airbags go off at all in a crash if taken out?

Re: stilo racing seats?

Don't do it, you'll loose your seat mounted side airbags, and besides they'll look crap!

I told you how to resolve a ripped seat, get down the scrappies and ask if they've got any 3-door stilo's, maybe you'll get lucky. Then you can take out those seat covers.

The airbag light is a doddle to fix, slide the drivers seat right forward, under the seat there is a connector which normally gets stood on by fat footed rear passengers. Just make sure its got a good connection and the light will go off.
