I kinda think they are a bit dated IMO looking for some cheap buckets like my mates because they are ultra comfy. I was also thinking about a C SXI front seat conversion??

Yeah they are so common on here aswell.
I just wanted some cheap buckets just till i can afford Sparco's or Cobra's not really bothered what people think its our cars what were customizing at the end of the day, we do it to our own tastes, we dont make the car upon other peoples opinions

yea very true.
The main thing i like about the cali leathers tho is the rear bench, in the future might change the fronts for leather buckets (if i can find any at a good price) and keep the cali rear bench just for a good match.

Also if you check the old ebay theres many cheap sets of buckets.

I reallly like your car by the way and your enthusiasm being only 15, it took me til iwas 17 nealry 18 to start thinking about modifying my car, i very much look forward to seeing your car grow in time.

lol, do you have a powerflow exhaust place near you at all? do wonders for 12v's. either that or just look on here, usually someone selling some kind of exhaust.

What style you want to go for?
