    Hi Mark,

    I'm starting to look for seats for my Nova and I'm impressed with the quality and variety of finishes of Intatrim's seats ... although I've only got photos to go by.

    I've been looking at the photos of your 'old' Nova and your seats look like Intratrim's 'GT40' range? Your seats look like a tight fit, but I don't think the 'GT40' seats come in a narrower version? I'm finding myself drawn to the 'Odyssey' or 'Ranger' seats which are narrower, but haven't made up my mind yet.

    A few quick questions ....

    • Were you happy with the quality?
    • How comfortable did you find the seats?
    • Did you buy their own seat runners, or did you find another way of fixing them in position? If so, how did you achieve this, and did you raise the front of the seat?

    Main thing is, would you recommend the company as a supplier for the Nova?

    Cheers,
    Alistair

    Hi
    intatrim were great, and actually wanted my car on their stand to advertise their work.
    Quality was first class however you have to accept that the seats are quite firm so have be rough if you don’t have a padded bum !!!
    Due to my height, only 6 foot, and floor pan drop, I had to bolt the seats straight to the floor without runners. This made them slight laid back so you were really laying down in the car. If you were shorter in height then you could raise the back slightly to make the seat angle more comfortable I would say.

    As a supplier, I would definitely recommend them 👍

    That's very helpful Mark ... thanks!

    I'm only about 5'6" so maybe there's scope for using the runners. I'll get in touch with them to find out what the total height and width would be with them included.

    Mx5 seats also fit, and as a bonus are recline able, so worth considering

    Thanks Phill. That's a good point, because Intratrim's don't recline. The difficulty I have is not being able to actually try a seat out in my car with the roof down .... however, I know yours works, having been a passenger and a driver in your car

    Thanks!

    MX5 seats only fit IF you don't have deep floor pan drops.

    Yes that's true. My car is lowered 2.5" but I had to fit a 1" spacer bar to the rear seat mounting to make it fit. This means the floor is effectively only lowered by 1.5" with the MX5 seats in place

    Buffy, your seats are worth more now-
    Your old Nova is back on Facebook. When I asked how much the reply was £18,000!
    That really will set a benchmark.

    I am aware that the car “ was “ up for sale however I believe circumstances may have changed.
    Surprisingly none of you saw Jim’s car advertised for I have been advised it’s going to Thailand !!
