Good tip mate on covering the ends, put a very small but deep scratch on my Mondeo rear passenger door when refitting the new seat!

You could be right in that the fault just needs cleared and reset, hopefully a quick cheap fix for you.

Would love a set of Recaros myself, never heard a bad word said about them, but I have a blue interior so if I started to change one thing inside I wouldn't be content til I'd done the whole thing! The grey/blue ones might work, but can never find any on this side of the pond and courier costs are always expensive then on ones through ebay.

As for uploading pics, if you're just using the 'quick reply' box, select 'More Reply Options' at the bottom right corner. Then that'll give you an attachment option, so just click browse, then locate to the file on your computer, just the way you'd do with an e-mail attachment or similar. Attach this when you locate the file, then you can 'Add to Post' as well.

This is the easiest way I find to do it if the files are on your comp, rather than going through photobucket or the likes.

If they're too large I find it simplest to just open them in Paint, shrink them down and re-save, then go through the process above.

Hi,

This is what I plan to do to mine. Did you manage to get 5 door versions or 3 door?

I'm on the lookout for 5 door and I'm waiting for a good condition set to come up (without door cards) at a reasonable price <_<

Will be watching this thread to see how you get on.... btw way - whats the comfort like and are they the same back width as your old seats? I'm a big guy (tall) and fancy a bit more support.

Stu

+1 above!

They look fantastic! Will have to keep an eye out now!

Just out of curiosity, what year is your car and what year was the car they were out of?

p.s - I'd also be interested to know if you've fitted them to your Titanium and if you're looking at making the heater pads work?

  • these are out of a 2 door model fitted into a 4 dor no difference in fitment they came out of st3 not sure what year comfort wise you will not be dissapointed fit like a glove i,d say the back rest is slightly narrower than my origionals out of the titanium but that just might be me because of the side supports i will be looking at getting the heater pads to work just missed a sset of switches the other day but will get some will keep you all posted on how i get on got a few projects lined up just got a zetec s bumper for it got the front grill so just need the skirts and front lip oh and a decent spray job on the bits an bobs get my st alloys refurbed its all money but be worth it in the end .

Hi,

I'm leaving the outside of my Titanium alone (for now). I've done a few mods on the inside and upgraded my head unit to the DAB version.

I think I'll have a sit in an ST3 with the leather recaro's before I buy a set as I'm fairly wide (6'7 18.5 stone)

I'll be looking in to fitting the heater switches and hope I have the correct loom ;)
