    What's the truth about '93 Allante Seats?

    I see a friendly comment noting '93 Eldo and '93 Allante seats are one and the same. I have seen this before in other points yet the styling is not the same.
    Are they bolt in matches with modest styling differences or is it just not true?

    Its true. Don't know if they are bolt in replacements, but I think so. They aren't the Recaros from the 87-92 Allante.

    Wonderful, You do not know if they bolt match and the styling is completely different but they are the same as the Eldo.

    Not only were the part numbers for the adjusters completely different between the cars, there was a first and second design on the '93 Eldorado adjusters. It doesn't tell what any of the differences were, so it may just be pot luck that they fit.

    I told you all I knew. I KNOW they aren't Reccaros, and that they are the Eldo seats. That's all I know, and its TRUE. Next time I see a request by you I'll refrain from responding, let you figure it out for yourself.

    1993 Allante' seats are not the same as the Eldorado seats. There is no lumbar in the Eldorado seats, and no seat memory. Even if they are a bolt in, which I suspect they are, they will not be a plug in.

    Nice....the guy tries to help you and tells you what he knows, sure mabye you already knew that info, but its not like he said anything offensive or rude, he gave you information whether or not it was of use to you is a different matter, however both your responses were both rude and offensive, nice way to start off on this site, not to mention a good strategy for life, your lucky im not a mod on this site because with that attitude coming from somone with 7 (less at that time actually) I would have not only trashed this question, but you would have been banned for sometime.


    Have a nice day.

    The 93 Allante seats were made by GM not Recaro as noted but were not Eldorado. They were developed specificaly for the Allante in terms of comfort and support. I was the Allante development engineer at the time.

    Can we get an update to the question? I was told the '93 seats are the same as the Seville seats.

    TIA - Rick
