What seats do you have at the moment?

Perhaps you don't need to look at other makes. SPI seats for example are as comfortable as any car seat I've ever sat in. A world apart from the old single post headrest design they replaced. Although they are large seats so take up more room.

MPI seats are a little smaller but still a good supportive seat in my opinion.

Yea, they're MPI cooper ones (half leather)

Standard seat design 1996 to 2000 (MPI minis, last ones). Lots of colour/ material combinations in them.

Good seat. Same basic design as used in the last Metros (rover 100), but adapted to fit the mini mountings. They tilt forward as usual but also fold via a lever, the only factory classic mini seats that do this.
