Try a pick n pull. I see you're in NJ and I'm in south jersey and can recommend a few. Also try richpin06a on Youtube, he does a lot with Saturn videos and has done one on the seat removal.

I believe any 91-02 saturn s series seats will bolt on to the SC2....I'm in Camden county but you may be further south haha. I put in leather seats from a 99 SW2 in my SL2 but again I'm pretty sure the bolt pattern remains the same between all model types. Maybe one of the older Saturn gurus can get you more info. You can also try the google search function on this site to find more specifics. From other car brands there may be a chance that the bolt pattern is similar but it would have to be on a smaller car like a civic, corolla, Sentra, etc...

Take a read of the sticky thread - keep a real close eye on the oil level at first (check at every gas fill up) and refill before it gets down below a couple of diamonds. I add about 6~9 oz a week.

You can try adding foam to the seats or putting something between seat bottom and wire springs if the bottom is saggy

Seat bottom refurb
http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=184156

Any S-Series front seats will fit. Or if the foam on the driver seat is worn, you can swap over the foam pieces from a passenger side
http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...2&postcount=77

No other seats are a direct swap that we've found, bot other seats can be made to fit with minor fabbing:

I guess it depends on what you're used to; I find the seats perfectly comfortable. As such, I do wonder if yours is just in need of some better foam

Yeah, there is a reason I have a collection of "how to make your Saturn seats better/replace" links I wouldn't have those if I was satisfied with the seats in there now. They're OK, especially for an econo-car of the era and for shorter trips of a couple of hours.

the worst offender is the wire "spring" / hold down that runs parallel with the door, that holds the seam down on Sx2 seat covers. It digs into my left cheek and is noticeable after a few minutes. It's on my list to do something about

The center consoles do exist, youll probably have to find one in a junkyard somewhere. There is also ebay. If you get one, it wont take much to remove it, just some phillips head screws.

As far as seat comfort goes, the SX1 seats put you right in the ground and they honestly dont feel that great. SX2 seats are far better feeling but i feel like the foam ones are too soft. The seat swap option sounds interesting to me though, those asian car seats have to feel so much better.

Good luck finding a center console. They were problematic with the latches and the hinges breaking, and they are now hard to come by.
