Seats that fit in a Mini

Post by Billy » Sat Apr 07, 2012 3:35 pm

Looking to change my front & rear seats for a leather interior. I need the front seats to be able to tilt forward for access to the back and don't need electrics.

Has anyone here put in different seats themselves? I'm aware of Alfa GTV but having Alfa Romeo embossed in them doesn't appeal to me.

Early 911 rear seats fit perfectly, don't know about the modern ones though.

A fully carbon fiber Mini Marcos shell weighs just 7.25kg.
