this i was considering for my Tucson.
Hey dude !
If you wana take my advice.. these seats are really really good, i mean in comfort wise, it gives a good support to your back..
But for a car like a Tucson.. i dont think it would suit the look of the car.. as these seats are very sporty looking !!

Hi,

If you are referring to the sports seat(Recaro/Sparco/MOMO imitation or original) yes they can fit.

firestarter-you being in b'lore,the best person for you to contact for a replica sparco or recaro seats would be bluraven, he recently arranged a pair for my friend[16v100bhp],we got it for rs14000/-.pls check out the pics on 16v100bhps thread.it is really comfortable.
killjoy-where in bangalore can you get recaro/sparco lookalike seats for 10000/-?pls give details.regarding anil padiwal,i am a regular customer there , you can never get seats less than 18500/- from him.
amitoj-contact bluraven.

Default Bolero Seat Modification

Hi Guys!
I'm 5'11" tall and I've tried all seat positions, there is obsolutely no thigh support and it's a real pain to drive long distances. Has anyone in this forum modified the front seats of a Bolero for the above reason? If so I request you to provide some details - like how and where it was done.

I posted this in another thread, but I think this query belongs in the Modifications... section.

Has anyone gone through with the seat modification process? i.e, adding foam etc to create greater lumbar, side and thigh support? If so, a small writeup on the process (pics would be great) would be very helpful for others to go the same route.
Specifically: While adding side, neck and thigh support padding, does a supporting frame need to be fabricated to hold the foam in place? Seems to me that no matter how hard the foam is, prolonged usage would cause it to lose shape and firmness. Comments?

Also:
Has anyone tried retrofitting better seats in a Lancer?

Which cars have the best OE seats, in terms of support & comfort?

Always wanted to know the feasibility of this:

Remove the back seat from my swift and put in two single seats similar to the front!

Your thoughts on this?

So far, only questions in this thread, barely any answers. Of all the OE seats, Daewoo was the only company that made furniture good enough to place in your home. Sigh.
It has started to look like we don't demand ergonomics from our cars, and subsequently don't get it from our manufacturers.

Enough Rant.

Is there anyway one can better lumbar and thigh support in our cars, without spending a fortune?

"Koyas" in Coimbatore, Tamilnadu is the best place to do all such works/modifications. Many vehicles are brought here not only for seats, even for other modifications. I am taking my Bolero shortly for front seat modification in order to get better lumbar and thigh support!

But it will take me ages and spondylitis to get to Coimbatore from delhi... especially with the seats as they are.

Irony.

I want to remove the back seats and get fitted some adjustable seats exactly like the front ones.
Is it possible? has anyone tried it? where in pune can i get it done and how much will be charges?
I own a Zen Estilo and the rear space is awful, occasionally we used them when my parents arrive ( once in 6 months) but i need something spacious and comfortable for them.
I don't care if the sitting capacity decreases from 5 to 4.
