    Anyone still alive??

    Sorry guys, been off for ages it seems, 2 years worth of PM's to answer. Apologies to all!!

    Been busy, ol Yeti now at 220k and going FAR better than ever. Almost went to Audi early this year then 'Corona, and I decided no debt was the new rich, and cashflow king. Spiced the old girl up some, missus likes GTI front seats the best.

    That looks great. Lovely wheels.

    I'm a fan of the previous face but that looks really good

    Personally, I like the appearance of Yeti more than Karoq.

    Are the GTi seats a direct fit? Iíve been toying with replacing mine as well but havenít looked into it.
    Which year model did you part from?
    I agree the Yeti is looking great.
    Thanks

    Yep, easy fit, although the base is a lot shorter in height, so you have to pump them up to maximum to get to the height where the yeti seats START. If you are shorter and have the seat pumped up at all the GTI seats max out at the stock seat minimum height. No contest on comfort, lateral hold and how they look, Yeti stock seats are crap in comparison. You lose the passenger under seat drawer, but no big deal for me. Mine are MK6 fabric, not a leather fan in sunny QLD!

    Awesome. Good info. Thanks Greg.
    Took mine to the track last week. Could definitely do with more lateral support..

    The GTI seat rail sits further back than the Yeti, so you will have some rail overhang out the back and the seat will sit quite forward on the rails. If you have shorter legs or you like being up close to the wheel you will struggle. I'm an average 178cm and there's still forward motion for me, just an FYI. I used to consider the stock seats as OK, the GTI seat is however immensely better.

    Yep would have been me, I'm an orthopaedic rep and Buderim is one of my haunts. Thanks, I get a lot of comments, mostly " what is it ".
