Exclamation Internal Springs in Seat Upholstery

I've heard an upholstery guy commenting that if springs are included (internally) in the seat upholstery setup of M800/Omni it would feel much smoother when driving through bumpy roads. Is such a mod possible or is it a gimmick ?

And I've seen the normal seats of Ambis being converted to bucket seats. What is so special about bucket seats ?

Can the seats in entry level cars be converted to bucket seats ?

Modern seats use foam with cloth covering. Older cars like amby use springs with coir and stuff like that with a vynil covering.

What I'm asking is that, can the springs be added to the upholstery of the entry level cars like M800/Omni ?

And will it serve any good ?

Asking the same question again plus this one...

In the Spring Tying Techniques article, they have mentioned the usage of springs for upholstery.

Is this method practical ?
