Seats for Chamonix

Hodgepodge

279 views

Last year, I bought a beautiful set of E21 Recaro seats and mathcing rear seat covers for the Chamonix '02.  Since this is the sportier my two '02 cars and it had the old-style marshmallow wide headrest seats, it made sense to install them in this one.  They look A-MAZ-ING!   Although the seats are the same height as the old seats, they are much more firm so you end up sitting about 2 inches higher than before.  That's going to take some getting used to.  I will not be cutting into the seat mounts to lower these seats.  Anybody have any other suggestions?

My E21 Recaros are bolted to the 02 runners like this...

 

Not sure why  yours are not.

 

Cheers,

Ray, the original runners are a little wider than the E21 seats so I opted for the E21 runners, which have locks on both slides and are a little higher on the inboard side.  Do you have a plate on the inboard side that matches the 02 rail with the E21 seat?  If so, what does it look like?

This looks great! I'd look to do the same one day with my chamonix. Did you have any issues finding the matching marine blue leather/vinyl?

No.  I bought the seats and the rear seat covers from Coquette out of LA.  They seem to have everything.   My other 2002 also has blue and I was able to match the seats in that car at World Upholsdtery.
