I have just got back the seats from my broom yellow 20vt. I am really pleased how they turned out. Wasn't sure about the Pininfarina logo, but it looks great. Went for alcantera and leather combo as leather is too hot in summer and too cold in winter.
Just have to fit them now.

Super - the alcantara is a great idea.

Excellent job. Bravo!

Do these have more bolster added and better definition (less flat) or is it just because they are newly refurbished and haven't had bums sat in them yet?

There is additional foam over the whole seats as well as replacing the worn out foam. They are much firmer now.

They look great in my view. Really different and a great alternative to the standard leather.

I'd imagine the material makes the seat just a bit more "grippier" to - which is what you need in those fast corners!

Regards

I still have to fit the seats but I hope that the alcantara makes the seats the same as the original cloth when cornering. I also have a Plus with leather seats but I slide all over the place when cornering hard.
I hope to have the seats in before the end of June. I am just in the process of re-dyeing the carpet and sorting out spraying the centre console with Plastidip.

I'd be glad if you included some pictures of the process of coating the centre console with plastidip. I'll have to do mine in the near future, as it is gunked up pretty good!

OK will do. I have stripped it already, but still working on the handbrake bit.
