    I was thinking of putting these seat in mi 348. Do you guys think it would help or hinder the car in the future when I go to sell?

    I hate mi current seat because they are not comfortable.

    Just want some opinions

    I would do it. Those seats look great. You can always put the originals back on when you sell.

    I have seen these seats and sat in an identical pair in the seller's car. They are gorgeous.

    Those are SUUHWEET! Do it Do it!!

    Do they require extensive modifications to fit? If not, just keep the originals somewhere safe and hand 'em over when you sell.

    Those look excellent - really, very impressive. :D

    As aforementioned, if it's an easy conversion, keep the original seats and give the buyer the choice of them on sale if you ever decide to part with your Ferrari.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    I believe those seats were the ones offered by FChat User Name Excelsior (sp?). The are heated, is that correct. The price, around $2600, seemed quite fair for the apparent quality. Moreover, you would pay that amount just for plain leather covers from, e.g., GAHH without installation. BUY THEM. But, as everyone else has stated, save the old seats and all the associated hardware.

    I agree, those seats look fantastic, and then you can re-install the originals if needed.

    Do it and keep your original seats. When you sell your car, replace the stock seats and sell these separately - or install them in your next toy. :)
