theyre considered a upgrade, a lot of people will happily swap with you...
The plastic backs look more special, a bit like the Recaros in the Audi RS4s.
Do they look the same from the front? I have seen a few with a ribbed effect on the bolsters which isn't as nice.

Careful when sourcing EDFC kits as some advertisers are listing kits without motors which add around £120 to the price.

Don’t fit the Teins before you buy the EDFC as you need to fit the motors before fitting the coil overs to the car.
