Well everyone, I finally was able to locate a set of MX3 seats for my car. I found them at a local foreign auto junkyard. They only cost me $100 for the pair too. The only thing is a cigarette burn hole on the passenger seat, though it's not that big a deal to me, I will probably end up getting seat covers for them anyway. I was going to post pictures of them up, but I decided to take it easy on the dial-up crowd, so I'll just put a link to them on my website.

All I've got left to do is finish cleaning them up (Turtle Wax Power Out works great for this), get rid of the rust on the metal parts inside, and then I'll be ready to install them in my car. I should have that done by this weekend, then I'll get pics up of them installed.

PS - I haven't really cleaned the one on the right, so that's why it looks nasty.

I dunno. I like my escort seats. ;p 'course mine are third gen, but they seem sort of 'bucketish' to me. Mine is very comfortable. I can ride in it for hours and hours on end but I can't stand being cramped up in the leather buckets in my mom's SC2 for more than like an hour... I don't remember what second gen seats look like. Maybe they aren't the same. If I found a set of those MX3 seats for real cheap (like 50 or under) I'd take 'em though. They look snazzy. Those'll look real good in your car, I'm sure.
