    E6C3EA49-2B37-4BF2-821B-935B2D0A806D.jpeg Finally got round to having a go at fitting the RX8 seats that I picked up a few years ago.
    Still to fit the final power connections and fit a switch for the heated part but at last they’re in!
    Big thanks to Coffeelandy for his thread on fitting theses seats, made things a lot easier.
    I’ll try and attach a piccy of them!

    Does the rear switch for lumber control work on yours? Not sure if they made different versions but I've got the rocker but no switch behind or wiring.

    Yep the lumber works now, found a bit of chafing on two of the wires that went to the switch and now sorted! Only button I haven’t figured out yet is the very front one. Base tilts and back tilts and full seat forward and back but nothing from that front button .

    Front button lifts or lowers back of seat.

    We’ll be testing out the comfort level at the weekend heading down to the Midlands Game Fair.
    Usually after a couple of hours(Tebay services for lunch) we suffer from that well known medical condition of ‘Landyarse’ so will be interesting to see the difference

    Well impressed with the first long drive with the seats fitted. A good few hours of driving down to the Game fair via a few suppliers and I have to say it was pretty comfy, no more Landyarse
