Re: Upgrading seats
Just a few points for you to check....does your car have seat airbags? If so make sure that the "new" ones do too, or you'll need to do clever electrickery with resistors to fool the airbag ECU into thinking they have....
Some seats have the central armrest fitted on the driver's seat, and some don't....if this is important to you it needs checking.
Door cards....most cars with leather will have rear electric windows, but its not a given, so don't forget to check that you get rear cards that match yours...although the leather trim can be swapped over if you're careful....
To swap all four seats, door cards and B-post trim is probably a couple of an hours job, maybe a bit longer depending on how everything comes undone.....Not sure about the "isofix" issue - I'm guessing that this is a car structure concern rather than the seats....there is very little strength in the rear seat frames.
Tan isn't the commonest of colours - I have only one set - but as the interiors are bulky and easily damaged in shipping you are best finding somewhere reasonably local to supply....
