Wave Solution to poor seat side support

I don't actually have a problem with the GTV's seats...not even the Ph2s....but I know some of you boy racers complain about lack of side support they give.

Well 'Paso' from Croatia has come up with the perfect solution. He's had his seats' 'wings' modified, increased in size, to give extra side support.

Done by a professional trimmer they look original, costing only 200 Euros. In the UK this will be a lot more, maybe 300-500?

He's posted a brief description & pictures on posts 42, 47 & 54 on:

They remind me of the Recaro seats you used to get in the Ford Sierra RS Cosworth.

But, its the actual seat bit, the bit that your bum sits on that is the problem with the P2 seats i thought?

I think this solution is excellent. This guy figured it out by himself while everyone else is putting non-Alfa seats in he comes up with a workable mod - well done to him!

Eau Rouge - I suppose when you are "locked" in across your back then your arse is going nowhere - I'm pretty sure they are Ph 1 seats.

Question is: Who and how much for us in the UK?

I have the same seats - I reckon this would work for me, although if I win a bit on the lottery tonight I will be ordering a pair of Sparco Milano's to slot in.
