Re: Seats (phillm3swede)

I've got heated seats and I actually like my leather interior, so I probably won't ever change it. I've seen some cool bucket/racing seats out there for other cars, I am sure it wouldn't be hard to do for ours. I'd say go for it! Half the reason I got an S40 was because there are hardly any around here and I like having a car people have to look at more closely to figure out what it is. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Whoa, that would be cool. Haha dont know if i feel justified putting those in my puny 2.4i, but let me think about it. Im sure it would be an adventure to try and make them fit too.

The SIPS and WHIPS will not work with these seats. All though it would look awesome! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Dang, defeats the purpose of getting a volvo a bit doesnt it? That might be a deal breaker, I value my life and there are some stupid drivers out there haha. And most of all i value my neck/back so i like that whip lash prevention

Re: Seats (phillm3swede)

I love the leather seats in my S40. Very comfortable and very adjustable. Everyone that has ridden in my car has commented that the seats are very comfortable. Don't see any reason to change them.

Re: Seats (x-omatic)

From some one that has experienced how the whips and sips work definitely not worth installing different seats. I got smashed by a trailer and i felt the seat roll and tilt back as designed by volvo.

Re: (TheDane)

Maybe ill save them and put them in the S40 the day i decide to remove all the bags and cage for a road racer <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> lol. Dont think the misses would allow that but would be pretty sick haha.
