    The new seat is definately alot more supportive than the OEM seat. The new seat is shaped around your body with firmer bolstering, shoulder support is alot more too. OEM seat feels like a family car seat, new seat feels alot sportier.

    Oh and another nice plus is there is now more legroom in the back with the new seats - bonus! :D

    Got the other subframe modified and the passenger seat fitted.

    Overall I am very happy with them, they match the interior perfectly, they are firm but comfortable and very supportive for spirited driving. They are ALOT lighter than the OE seats and offer improved legroom in the back too. I might try polishing the seat backs to bring them up to a gloss finish.

    Yes, correct, the handbrake is black alcantara with red stitching, so is the gearstick gaiter. The handbrake is a Civic Type-R item modified by me to fit the Leon handbrake.

    will look sweet once the new wheel is in place

    everything ties in nicely with the interior to give it that OEM+ feel

    top marks rob

    Hi rob, just thought Id say, I don't know about you but from the pics I think i would be tempted to paint the silver bits on the sides of the seats matt black, of carbon wrap them! Somehow I'm not too keen on the silver bits because I think they stand out too much, I still love the look of the seats tho! :D

    I honestly don't mind the silver bits, but carbon-wrapping them is a really nice idea.

    look sweet as ever Rob, really liking the new seats. I think the carbon wrap on the silver bits sounds good.

    Hub kit finally arrived so I got the suede steering wheel fitted. Airbag connectors for the seats and steering wheel all have resistors on them so no airbag light or fault codes!

    I do have another steering wheel, MOMO Tuner, not sure which one I like the best? I have to keep one and sell one ... ?

    Definitely keep the one you have fitted bud! What boss kit did you go for? Momo?

    Hopefully see you at the rolling road day!
