To be honest you can get any seat to if you want.

Obviously the frames on the 19 are very different so you would need to either cut and weld the 19 seats to some 5 frames or weld brackets onto your 5 for them to fit as they won't use the OE points.

I managed to get clio 16v dark grey leather seats into my 5, backs fit straight in place I wanted to use the valver frames as a little more sturdier than the wobbly 5 ones so I ended up welded new mounting points on the exhaust tunnel in my 5 OK took me some time but they are really comfy :mrgreen:

19 seats bolt through the floor on the standard frames, not something I would do on a 5 unless you strengthened it. Or as James says you'll have to chop & weld...

I know you guys dont have the answers for everything but would you say the r19 rear bench would fit in the front r19 seats look exactly the same as the valver seats

James I seen your pictures and thought I want leathers  :mrgreen:
Inside your car looks amazing these r5s should have come with leather seats

Cheers matey, one of the best changes I have done to my 5 :D

I don't think the 19 rear back bench would fit the 5 but the lower section might, without seeing the frames for the 19 I am really unable to tell if they are the same as the clio valver jobbies.

If I was you try and get some clio valver leather seats they come up on the clio 16v forum now and again.  In fact I know a bloke in surrey whom has a set of grey leathers ones like mine but is missing one of the front subframes.  He was after 120.00 for them but they are in good condition.

I would have though so but make sure you put some strengthening bars over the welds as they sometimes snap when cut and welded.

Now you would think it was wider than the 5 but I am thinking as I am using a renault 19 valver black carpet in my 5 and I only had to do a few mods to get it to fit. :mrgreen:

I think the holes on the carpet aligned up with my clio front seats ok, I had to cut new holes in the back for the lower bench as the clio one comes in section like the gtt were the valver only has 2 x slots.

I just don't want to go get these and end up using just the fronts it would be awaste of cash I think these would look smart
Is there no 19 owners on here I'm guesting it's all same fitments with the 2 pins on the rear bench for the lower section
Has nobody tried this  Before

yeah mate they look brilliant in my 5, i havent got pics of them fitted but heres what they look like, must admit they was a bit of a pain in the butt to get them to fit properly,  but worth the hassle i think
