Re: E-series interior into HOT XF
Do what I did with my V8 XF, put some race seats in it and match the trim on the rear seat and door trims. Looks neat tidy, comfortable, and will pass any inspection when your using the original holes in the floor to mount the seat.
If you have already spent a fair bit on the engine and paintwork, it sounds like your going to keep the car for a while, so why not have a comfortable and good looking interior to match. You can get some really nice seats aftermarket these days, and they dont all have the race harness holes in them.
In my new project car (XEV8) I managed to find some Subaru Forester seats that have armrests, and have mounted those to the floor. Lots of combo's to think about
Nothing beats the sound of a V8
