Default Rover 75 with different seats

So...I've seen for advertise a Rover 75 here, seller bought the car in the same condition, doesn't know from what car the seats are and to be fair honest, the design is not far away from our seats . Having the headrest a one piece design with backrest, I was thinking the Z3/Z4 type of car, maybe some Alfa Romeo?

No idea what car those seats have come from but would def be interested to find out.

They look pretty decent and there can't be that many other manufacturer's seats that fit straight into our cars?

Seats (or driver's seats, at least) are one thing we're all gonna need replacements of at some stage.


Cheers,
Karl.

Just had a look at the Lancia Thesis, not unlike a 75 only a hell of a lot uglier!

Yeah, looks ok from the back but the front is definitely an acquired taste..!

Lancia Thesis : the rear end we should have had and the front end nobody should have had.
