I overcame this in the Fairlane by tinting the windows up to the legal limit allowed and just used a sun visor on the windscreen. Leather is a lot easier to live with after doing all that. By the way get premium sun blind since they're quicker to fit than the cheaper ones every time, a lot less fiddly.

Re: front seats

Can get mounts made up to suit almost any seat. Recaro, etc... do it all the time.

Re: front seats

Dunno - when I'm back at work, in a couple of weeks, I can chase prices if you want. Revolution race gear (i think) also sell fitting kits for the seats they sell...
