  • Front seats weight?

    Im looking to replace the front seats with these from LMF: http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/Corbeau...-RRS-Seat.html

    As they have all the runners and subframes so less hassle. I see these are 31kg, but what are the originals? Is it much of a weight saving?

    i'm not looking for opinions about how ***** they look or anything like that, just some facts and figures please.

    Believe the standards are around 60kgs for both seats.
    I see dumb people.......

    .....they don't even know they're dumb

        You only save weight by fitting lighter fixed posstions as they weigh around 13kgs each with all the fixings.

                    Standards are about. 32kg each

                    Pole positions and mounts and runners cone in at about 12kgs all in in mine

                    Massive weight saving and super comfy the pole positions

                        I ran the pole positions and rear seats for a little while and with the right runners you can still run seat belts and pre tensioners.

                        Also with a adjustment to the runners an adult can still get in the back. And still maintaing the same bolt pattern.

                        Depends on how often you get people in the rear ??

                        You can deffo feel the difference and it makes the car amazing to drive can really drive it soooo much better .

                        Really feel what the car is doing through your behind and makes it much more enjoyable and quicker too

                          I have to fine balance it really, as a couple of times a year i take my grandparents away when they go on holiday, (i'm 38 so you can imagine there're no spring chickens ) so i cant make it too tricky to get in the back. So ideally it would have to be same sort of set up as OE, but lighter.

                            Ahh I see fixed back not an option then. What about the recaro cs's

                            Depends on the budget though

                              Brand new with the runners and frames, they are too much cash for me The other half would go berserk
