Fitting seats was created by GrahamJimny
Hi I saw there are quite a few posts on here about swopping out seats and the Ignis Sport seem to be the only suggestion I came across.

My question is to avoid all the faffing about - would it not make sense to leave the seats in tact, and somehow weld or bolt in through new holes on the frame somehow?

Also why Ignis Sport and not Ignis seats?

Cheers
Graham

The simple answer is that the seat nuts are captive in double skin structures so just bolting through is more of a faff than modification of the new seats. Ignis sports seats are Recaros and immensely comfortable compared to much else that is not an after market bucket seat.

And if I grinded off the rail it sits on - could I weld them together somehow and weld back on to body of the vehicle?

There are many things you can do to or with your seats.

If you, as Lambert suggested, use the Ignis Recaros (actually you only need 2 seats and 2 backrests) you can fit them with minimal changes and effort and they also look original. Even the side plastic covers fit. And the seating comfort increases a lot. In the picture you can see how the Recaros look like.

I would recommend not to weld the rail to the body of your car. This might lead to jamming of the rails and also might not be allowed.

Agreed, welding the seats in could have some serious implications in the event of a collision on the highway as the bolted structure is designed to deform in a predicted manner in a serious impact. The insurance will likely take a dim view also.
