Are you sh***ing me? You put F355 seats in your Mini...? May I ask how much those were purchased for?


Cost £1300 in October 2000 Its 2 drivers seats :lol:


I doff my proverbial hat to you sir for having extreme style and having the financial banking. Nothing worse than a man with great visions but no cash to fulfill them.

My Monaco S seats don't touch each other but they do foul the B pillar due to the 'wings'. I have them just infront of the B pillar. :lol:

Ford Focus RS (sparco) front seats look amazing, the backs fitt to with a little modding of the rear storage bins (witch means any ford focus rear seat would fit). My dads friends son had a full sett fitted in his mini, looked awsome, but space was a little tight but it was worth it! The model of sparco seat that was in the RS I THINK wur Torino 2's but a very high spec.

i've got mazda mx-5 seats in mine. they fit very nicely, though you need a bracket made for them to fit. www.superfastminis.com has some pics of them. they made the brackets for mine.

Also, i remember speaking to someone at a Mini show that had fittted Mk3 Golf leather from a VR6..

like these..

Only problem was, they were from a 5 door and didn't tilt forward, but the 3dr ones, the seat base stays in place and the backrest folds right forward so it's easier to get in and out.
