      my name is also ben, and i just got GLI seats in my jetta.
      sorry, not sure whether or not you're talking about me.

      To be honest with you, I'm not really sure because I haven't had the pleasure to meet you.
      I asked my friend that works at this wheel alignment place on Haywood Road about a black nice looking jetta that I saw parked early last week and he told me about the GLI seats swap

      Nice pics....definitely super clean ride.
      Those seats are dope.
      Too bad I just blew my wad on turbo, but I guess you can't have it all.
      How was the install on those seats??? Did you have to fabricate mounts???

      thanks man. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Im actually not sure about what was involved in the install. The guy that put the seats in for me said it was tough though... makes me glad that i didnt try to do it myself like i had originally planned.

      I haven't done a seats swap myself, but a don't think the seats swap was that though, as fares I know, all the mkIVs GLI and the GL or regular Jetta share the same seats bolt pattern configuration, even the GTIs, that way VW can make things easier at the assemble line.
      as I said before I haven't task one myself so what richard told ben may be true, I'm gonna have to ask him later next week
      looking good ben, you're going to love the recaros [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
