Recaros.. The ones I looked into recently were only $2700 each. but they will hold you right on your date.

Few months ago I bought a Stratos seat off another forum member. It turned out to be uncomfortable so I've on-sold it... BUT: I kept the 2 seat adaptor/runners that were with it and were made to fit the GU. The seat itself had the same bolt-hole pattern as a VP/VN Commodore, so now I'm on the look-out for a good pair of those seats to bolt-up to my new runners. Commodore seats from an up-market model (electric etc) is what I'm after, just need to get along to a wreckers in the "smoke" at some stage.

Ive put 1986 Mazda seats in a MQ
Used the factory runners and the seats near as perfect bolted onto the factory runners
Even were a similar beige colour as the MQs
I know its not GU,but with mention of GQ ,would be a similar replacement for the GQ

Just fitted a VQ statesman seat to my coil cab ,it took a fair bit of mucking around ,making a frame to mount the seat to the original GQ sliders but the comfort is worth it.

If you are after some 3 row seat, I have a set of leather 'Desert Sand' that you can have for $400.00 plus postage.

The seats are brand new and were taken out 2 days after I purchased the Patrol for installation of the drawer system. They have been stored in the spare bedroom since.

i just fitted BA fairmiont Ghia leather seats to the GQ with no hassle very easy to put in,
im not sure if the GU seat bolt patterns are the same but you could try XR8 seats for sumthing to hold you in.

GQ and GU floorpans are different.. I would hesitate to guess GU models would be the same though.

The 2006 model seats still suck, dont expect any miracles of comfort over distance.
