Other OEM/Direct fit seats?
Hey guys, are there any other OEM seats that will bolt right into the BH chassis? I am thinking about swapping my seats for newer WRX seats if it can be done.

Who's tried it before?

any subaru, wrx only fit until 2005 or youll need new rails, sti up to 04 i believe

Are the rails just riveted to the seats? Meaning, are they decently easy to swap to a newer seat?

the rails are what go onto the floor of the car. i havent taken out rails myself, but plenty have done it before. usually when buying seats from someone else they dont sell the rails unless they upgrade to racing seats or anything that needs different rails

rails are riveted/spot welded onto the seat. Any impreza up to 07 will fit your car, and any legacy up to 04.

Perfect answers. I will search the bone yards.

Some WRX or STi fronts would look and feel amazing in my OBW.

Let the search begin. :-)

if money is an issue on the seats, 02/03 wrx seats are amazing, I had them in my 00 OBS before I sold it, they were awesome seats

johnny13laze1029 11-13-2012 03:08 PM

what about the rear seats... n chance i could also swap out the bench? no1 has posted bout that

2000_LegacyOutback 11-13-2012 05:48 PM

the impreza rear seats are narrower I believe

Ok, so based on the advice given here, I did source me out a pair of black seats from a 2004 WRX as well as the steering wheel. Here is the before/after pic.

As an fyi, these do sit taller, but I don't have a sunroof, so it doesnt bother me.
