Hi All,
I'm slowly rebuilding my XD, i'm after a new set of seats. I've been trying to decide what to get, i can't seem to find any decent seats at wreckers. I was thinking of getting XF GHIA or FE LTD seats cause they fit straight in, but i've seen an XF Turbo on here with AU seats. So here's what i'm after, a set of front & rear seats, will consider XF, EA-AU, NA-NL they must be grey, & in very good condition. I'm not sure what the going prices are so just let me know what you are after for them, or if anyone knows of a wrecking yard that sells decent seats at resonable prices, please let me know. By the way i'm in western sydney, your help would be greatly aprreciated.

Cheers,
Adrian.

Don't know if the AU rear seat would bolt straight in. Are you prepared to get some trimming done?

I'd be on the lookout for an ESP interior (either XD or XE!) for the XD. Or an LTD leather trim...

thanks for your reply EB XR, yeah i figured some modification may be involved, but i'm cool with that, i'm not really interested in the ESP seats, too many people fit them, i want somethin different & maintain the luxury feel.

the problem you have with any e series seats is the mods for the mounting. im not sure what the go is in nsw but if you need to have an inspection and the inspector sees average welds it wont pass. the x series seats have bolts that go through the seat runners, through the floor and a nut goes on the under the floor. the e series have a nut welded to the floor and a bolt screws into that. Doesnt sound that much different but trust me they are. if you find the seats you like modify the fronts to fit then take your xd rear seat and your new seat to a trimmer and have him swap the trim, might cost a couple of $ but it will be easier than modifying the new seat.

Thanks for your replies,

RevHeadRon: damn i'm interested, but your aren't in sydney but thanks heaps anyway.

rrt802000: i think i should have been a bit clearer, it's Fairmont Ghia, so Spack seats wouldn't really suit the rest of the interior, thanks heaps

I've located a wrecker that wrecks late model fords, i measure up the seats in my gf's EF, so i'm gonna try & get a set of Ef Fairmont seats, modify the fronts & if i can't modify the rear i'll do a sugested earlier & get the trim swapped. However if anyone else has something available please let me know.

Cheers,
Adrian
