EF Seats?

does ANYONE know for sure if the EF Fairmont Seats are any different to the EF GLi seats in comfort wise, i know they're velour.
XR seats are more bucketed then GLi seats, and fairmont ghia seats are very nice (prolly hard to find) but no one can tell me any differences with EF Fairmont seats.
i need more comfy seats

anyone know where to get EF Fairmont/Ghia/Fairlane front seats?

Re: EF Seats?

As it stands, there is no comfort difference between Falcon, Futura, Fairmont, Fairmont Ghia, Fairlane or LTD seats. That is unless you count velour over cloth as comfort.

If it's comfort that you're after, try and get some EL seats. EL seats are chunkier around your lower back and are a lot more pleasant to sit in. Ideally if you can get some Futura or Fairmont seats all will be well as the have got the twin lumbar support knobs on the passenger seat as well.

I had an EF Futura before the NL and it killed my back. I'd get out of the car at work and spend 20 minutes trying to stand up straight. Same story when I got home. (I was driving 100ks each way to work...). The main reason I bought the NL was the comfort factor. Now I can drive all day, and I mean all day, get out at the end of the trip and do cartwheels. It's the only way to fly!

As for getting some, try Just Falcons in Bayswater 9720 9899.

There is a place down your way but I can't remember what it's called. I'll have to get back to you on that!

As far as I know, they just bolt straight in!

Re: EF Seats?

Correction, I believe that the rails are different. Having said that, it wouldn't be too difficult to change the rails over. The result would be well worth it!

Re: EF Seats?

Walkinshaw knows
there are a few mods that need to be done, nothing drastic though.
EF XR seats are different to GLi seats, more support on the sides, EF Ghia are also different.
just wondering if EF Fairmont seats are anything like XR seats or something,
they HAVE to be better then GLi seats, i'm sick of hanging on around corners

Re: EF Seats?

The Fairmont seats are exactly the same as the Falcon seats, so you'll still be hanging on!

EL seats, from Falcon to Ghia, are deeper so you "fit" into them.

Re: EF Seats?

im pretty sure fairmont and futura have uprated seats to the GLi. thats how it was in the EB anyway, so id say they would be. the differences would be subtle, and they wouldnt be sporty, grippy seats like the EF-EL XR or the EA-EB S.
