    hi all its been a will since i posted,

    i am looking to get a set of half leather interior, but i cant find a set which has lumber support,
    one of the reason when i brought my car was cause it had lumber support (back problems),

    so i was thinking is it hard to swap over the lumber support into the new seats which i am going to get,

    has someone done this?

    many thanks

    Why don't you just retrim your seats? Will probably be easier.

    i did think of that, but i have the old type sports seats cloth ones (54 reg) but i like the look of the newer sline ones,
    is it easy to take apart the seats? seeing one of your posts you have taken them apart

    its very fiddly to take them apart and putting them back together properly.
    why not look for newer seats that have lumbar and heating built in. i know they dont come up often but then you could always sell on your seats with the lumbar still in tact and would be worth more

    i understand what you says, but i been on the look for ages, they never seem to come up, the only place i see them very often is ebay.de but the prices over there are like over £1200,
