Thumbs up Recaro lookalikes for my S10

Hi guyz,
I went seat huning yesterday at chennai for my S10. Was thinking of stanley leathers initially. But a look at one of the recaro lookalikes here at dreamsauto changed my mind. I've got the snaps with me but i'm not sure of how to post it here.
They simply looked awesome.. There were two versions there. One he said was a replica of the EVO 7 seats. This one was my choice for the palio.
But i'm not sure if the seats would fit in. The length between the shoulder wings on the seats were about 56 cms and the total length between the B pillars on my palio is only about 110. Even if i am able to snug it in, it seems this would completely block the a/c to the rear, but i'm sure i can live with it.

Please let me know on how to post the pics here.

Thumbs up Recaro Look Alikes

Well if I could fit it into my Zen then even you can fit it in the Palio, the best thing so do is fit the seats on the Existing Palio Rails and make Clamping to fit it in properly, using the Recaro rails might become tricky on your car.
Here are some pics from different angles.
Cheers.

Thanks Thoufique. I'm giving it a try here.



The shop is at GN Chetty road - Dreamsauto owned by Jesudas.

He quoted me 18.5k for a pair of these.

Thanks a lot raven for sharing the images . The seat seems very similar to one of the versions he had except for the writings on it. But he said he can get it only in red or blue and that too only on the inner part(like the one in the images).

By the way you'v got a cool system there . Where did you get it done? Is it from bangalore? defenitely seems out of chennai. Please let me know.

Here are the EVO 7 ones.



In case the pics doesnt come up, here are the links below....

Let me know your opinions. I'm planning to put these sometime this week.

looks nice man nd price doesnt seem too high. i have heard people quoting 25k for similar seats...
Its definitely sporty and cool but then you should consider comfort too.

You can also get ur existing seats recaro type covers. i had gotten a quote for recaro type covers from a lining shop. quoted 4k odd,never got down to doing it though so dunno how the finish will be.

Will these kind of seats give good feel and comfort for long drives or are these just for show. I have the seen the owner of Dreams Auto sit on these seats at the shop?

Is it possible to convert Alto seats to something like on the swift. The swift seats gives awesome underthigh support. I instantly fell in love with them.
