Is it possible to fit r171 leather seats into my r170! I love the look of them an think it would suit my little r170 perfectly.

Firstly my car has manual everything an are heated! But I kno most r171's are memory or air scalfed. I'm not fussed if that doesn't work ( result if I could wire then up) but would still need to manually change the seat. And finally do they actually fit?

Just wondered if anyone had done this before?

I dont know but I wouldnt bother with 171 seats they are rubbish. If you want new seats there are much better ones around

It's strange how people either really love R171 seats (as I do), or hate them as Jon does. I never have a problem with them - must be my natural padding!!

They are the worst seats I have had in a car since the days of my mk1 cortina. They are hard. No lumber support and the heaters are a total disaster

The air scarf or head scarf in my case is fine. The heaters are something you could well do without By the time they warm up ( if they work) your bum has already warmed the seat up. Its the lack of support for a sports car I find bad. Even my MX5 had better supporting seats

If you have the cash I would buy a pair of 170 seats and get them re modelled to suit your tastes. Be a lot less hassle IMHO
