    I purchased a pair of F56 seats from the junkyard. I followed the guide on this forum.I installed the seat occupancy sensor and airbag bypass. I transferred the seat belt clip, and drilled and tapped the floor to fasten the seats.

    I love them. They are extremely comfortable.

    Beautiful job!
    I am looking at a pair of these seats nearby right now. does anyone have any idea if I can retrofit them to fit in R53? concerned more about if the width will work, I can deal with adapting seat rails and the Airbag wiring.

    also, would R56 rear seats fit in an R53?
