Thumbs up Excellent Seats For Sprinter

I would like to share with other members of this forum, I purchased a pair of Chevrolet Silverado leather 8 way,heated power seats with the tracks complete.They fit on top of the Sprinter platforms perfectly.All I needed to do was hook up a Hot wire and ground to each seat. I did not hook up the heat,which these have,as I would needed to wire that seperately. I found them on Ebay for $650.00 including shipping..They are a dark grey and look factory!! They are Extremly comfortable and REALLY take up a LOT of bumps.. Regards,02Sprinter

How? Note the subform For Sale (visible whether you are a member or not).
Where? Where are you?
Also - if you post here, remember that there are 2 different 3-seaters sizes for the T1Ns and I don't know for the NVC3, not including differences in upholstery and head rests. So make your posting informative.

I will remove these two posts later.

Heated, 8-way power leather.... I doubt we're talking about a 70's or 80's model....

That does narrow it down to only 30 model years...

After perusing the offerings on ebay, not many seats look like they would be that great. Chevy HHR seats have some potential, but cant say if they will fit, and the cloth ones look kind of cheesy.

The ideal replacement seat for my Sprinter would have neutral styling, lumbar support, inside fold-down arm rests, seat heater, no wierd seat belt fit issues, ability to steeply recline, and to be easily adapted to bolt on to the existing T1N seat pedestal. A matching gray color would be a bonus. Power adjustment would be OK too but not required.

Not asking much am I.
