    yeah GM parts are pretty easy to retrofit, I swapped all sorts of stuff into my SS cobalt, like a limited slip diff from the G85 packages and heated seats.

    Re: non folding back seat

    It's absolutely ridiculous that folding rear seats are not standard, as they are on even the cheapest car. I learned the hard way... wife bought curtain rods and when I went to fold down the rear seats, I discovered they wouldn't fold and didn't even have a passthrough.

    BUMP.

    I agree, but what makes even less sense, is that the Performance model doesn't have them. You spend the bucks to get the higher level trim, and you lose this great feature. Can it be THAT much of a detriment to the rigidity of the car?? I'm hoping they change this for '15, when I'm in the market.

    Has anyone managed to make the conversion yet? I'm also looking into switching out my fixed seat back for a folding one.

    I keep an eye on ebay now and then for something to pop up, as I'm not looking to buy new if I can avoid it. nothing so far for me unfortunately.

    Re: non folding back seat

    If you search car-part.com* it will show who has what parts available. It lists 13 right now. Does not specify all that might be folding though (some show as folding)

    *car-part is just a site for people/junk yard dealers to sell car parts, like an ebay, so it should be ok to post the address here. They don't actually sell anything themselves. I've blacked out the actual name and contact info that it shows for the sellers.

    Re: non folding back seat

    Has anyone successfully fitted the folding seatback? I'm 90% sure it will change over without much trouble but that 10% of doubt is because the folding seats may require a catch to latch onto. There wouldn't be one on the base models that come without the folding seat.

    Yes the seats will retrofit. The body is the same and in both the floor and back deck metal it has attachment areas so if you had a donor car you shouldn't have any problem.
