Hi Everyone,

I have had the pleasure of driving around a 2007 DTS for the last few days and have come to realize how great the seats are. Very comfy and supportive. They seemed to really hold you in when you would get on and pushed it on some back roads. It is the only car I have ever been in with a head rest I could use. Just really very nice seats.

Has anyone ever looked into if the seat swap could be done? I that that would be an awesome Fleetwood mod. I am anxious to hear if anyone has any ideas about it. Thanks everyone for your time and have a great night.

Respectfully,

George D.

I've been having the same thoughts. Not only focused on the 2007, but on the seats that had both the heat and massage functions. I haven't gone as far as to get specs to see whether the tracks would fit, but I have priced different DTS and STS seats ... and you would be shocked at to what you could get for $250 to $700 (at the upper end I've seen front and rears seats and door panels ... not that I need them).

I'll be watched this thread to see if someone's gone farther than we have.

Seat conversions are possible, the major challenge is wiring. You'll probably have to rewire the circuit for the seats. I'm looking at the same for my GTO seats that I found for my 96 Fleetwood. (I don't need heated seats, but those GTO seats are comfy)

If the bolts don't line up for the mechanical bolting in, a body shop would probably be willing to help.

So what kinds of seats can be retrofitted into the Broughams?. I've been wanting different seats since I got my car.

Depends on how much work you want Destroyer. If you're talking bolt in and plug up with no changing, I doub very many at all. If you're able to do some wiring and drilling, probably anything you want.

Not to worried about drilling but the wiring part scares me.:eek:

The Bonneville seats have always worked in the past.. there is already a bracket and harness made to retrofit them in our cars. Plus you keep all the seat functions and heat :thumbsup:

I have been googling "Bonneville Seat Adapters" and "Bonnevile Harness" and can't find anything...where are they? I want them for my car! My seats are shot and this sounds like the best alternative, plus I can get a center console then and move the shifter to the floor.

Recaro seats are the answer.

That is an awesome mod, Elias. I always liked those seats. But my intentions are on doing the 2007 dts seats as well. Definately gonna be my summer project for my 93 fleetwood.
