GT Seat base agony

Hi, I've just bought a 2008 GT. I love it, but the seat base bolsters are really uncomfortable -unlike my previous 147 which was like an armchair.

Do Alfa list seat base foams for 147's or do you have to buy a whole seat?
I then need to find a London /SE based coach trimmer who could retrim this to match the GT's perforated leather - any ideas?

maybe you need to try different adjustments/settings. it seems pretty drastic to have to modify the seats. being a custom job, you're probably 'on your own' in terms of finding a suitable trimmer, and suitable matching leather/trim.

in terms of resale, cost, and ease, even some form of 'cushion' might be a better option.

hopefully you sort it out. the main 'complaints' about GT seats are usually about the lack of 'width' in the upright section because the side bolters are big. 'broad' occupants seem to struggle a bit in this regard.
