<There now follows a rant, which you may ignore if you wish>
I have said this before and I'll say it again, and I don't care if anyone disagrees with me 'because this is all fact. We paid a LOT of money to Cobra for two Classic low back seats with headrests and genuine, Mini type subframes and a rear bench re-trim to match in black and blue 'Rock' fabric. The subframes needed to be modified to fit the seats, 'because the holes were in the wrong places. The adjuster mechanism is a joke and the tilt lock doesn't hold the seat down tightly enough to pass an MOT officially (need to know 'understanding' test centre). And after a few months as a daily driver the frame's rear leg had bent the floorpan because it supports the seat in the wrong place, where there is little strength in the floor. Two years later, and the seats had by now collapsed totally. They offered no support at all and a very uncomfortable ride. Even the passenger seat which is little used. And now, the fabric is so faded that they are not so much blue and black as light and dark grey where the sun hits them. And the fabric gets schorched by the sun becomming crispy and brittle.
We were dead chuffed with them when the order turned up as they looked great and gave a great ride initially, but they have no build quality whatsoever. They could be a Leyland product they're so poor. In my opinion they are just garbage.
That's what I have to say about them. Consider it if you will, ignore it if you want but I have warned you about my experiences with Cobra seats.
