Thanks John. I do miss the old seats tho- Bill pointed out a neat feature for this gen...the moving headrest. Sadly these ones do not have that feature, not the automatic recline feature, but the again, I don't miss people that when its their fisdt time in the car, and constantly moving in up and down..
The shifter is from a 2000 SSEi along with the leather boot. I never much cared for the cheap looking plastic that the general slaped in there before. I saw the initial concept in a 93 SE in a yard when I had the 89' and liked it ever since. Found the 2000 couple of years ago...and off it came.
I'll post some more of the interior once i have the chance to clean it.
oh so you didnt get al7'*? those are just the power bottom seats?

*edit* woooootttttt this is my 400th post

Unfortunatly I didn't get al7'*
They had an SSEi there but the interior was gray
I re-configured my seats, they have all the features of the originals - the power recline and the power headrests
