    Right a quick update,after help from Warren (thanks mate) and MJ Interiors we have finally
    fitted the rear S5 seats.
    It was certainly more of a mission than i first thought,having to trim bits of leather,swap all the frames
    and fit longer seat belts in the base to allow for the thicker padding,they are finally in.
    Sorry for the crappy phone pics,they dont relly do them justice.
    I also had the armrest done to match the seat design.
    The bases going in

    Absolutely amazing!
    Great job mate. Those back seats are out of control!!!

    I notice that you still have a single Din stereo. I would have thought with all of your amazing transformation, you would have installed an RNS-E?

    Thanks mate,LOL something will get done with it,its not really been anywhere to need a satnav,just shows and garages for mods ha ha.
    But joking aside,i had the rnse in the last one and its great and will get round to doing something with it,maybe just a nice non
    standard double din unit.
    Its pointless us all doing the same,unless i find a cheap one ;)

    I also tried the wheels i had lined up yesterday but they arent going to work.
    They were 20" bentley mulliners.I tried a normal one which wouldnt quite tuck,and also
    tried one with 5mm skimmed off the back,which would just work.
    But as my misses and little un use it as there car i am not taking the risk of doing that.
    My mate has run them on his for ages but i dont really like the idea of that.

    So the hunt continues,i'm in no rush as still think the speedlines work a treat,but any good ideas
    send me them on a postcard :laugh:

    Awesome Jules.

    I bet the red leather looks better in person. I find it never photos well for some reason.

    its mint. the s5 rears have different buckles to mine thats why they were probably harder. the rear is pimp as.. can safely hold your beverage and get a plaster for them nasty cuts :laugh: but honestly them with the armrest is trick.

    I'm sorry, but your car should come with a health warning.

    I am currently lying on the floor now, slobbering and fitting because of the pure filth of it.
