Just you, they're not at all right.

The front have bolts, our fronts clip in. The mounting locations look very different for the rear as well.

I know that most of the other Saturns don't have front clips, but even a little adjustment could work. Besides, almost anything could work with a little modding. A little and patients and you never know.

Aren't you the same guy who wants the Ion headrests in the Vue? Not likely going to happen, but I'm sure more people have asked dumber questions.

No, I thought about putting Ion RL Recaros in my Vue, but ended up just getting the Ebony seats out of a later Redline.

Anything can fit, but if I were going to do that much work, I wouldn't put seats from a weird little commuter car in personally. And with something as safety critical as the seat, I'd rather not have something that required extensive modifications to fit.

XLR - I'm just wondering where you found your ebony interior?

My driver side armrest & passenger side recliner broke about 8 months ago, and it's driving me crazy.

Truth. It was literally a needle in a hay stack sort of thing. I got lucky and got a set that hadn't been sitting too long, but it still took a decent amount of cleaning.

The armrest broke? How'd that happen? It's only held on by one torx bolt, so you may be able to take it off and fix it.

I still have my original black leather seats sitting around here that I really should sell to make the gf happy to have them gone. *hint hint*
