Exmoor front seats

Anyone ever had any problems with new Exmoor front seats?? There is no way all 4 bolts are going in- only 3 wannna line up and the damn thing still doesnt want to slide back and forth. Not to mention the seatback tilt isnt staying in place??

Yep.

It appears that whatever jig they're using (i'm suspecting they're not using a jig at all) it's not lined up correctly. I had to really bend and force it in place to get that 4th screw to align with the hole. The result being that you have to apply a lot of force to be able to move the seat. Overall pretty disappointed with the Exmoor craftsmanship (or lack thereof).

EXACTLY the problem I was having, so I got the 3 that would line up bolted in and had to mark the 4th hole and re-drill. Sucks but had no choice. The seats look pretty but overall I think the factory seats are far better quality. Also note that Exmoor Black is not black at all but a close match for what LR calls "Ash Gray" or what I call "almost black".

That is disapointing. if they were cheaper then i could see it.

Does anyone know if you can source the outlast fabric anywhere to recover the stock seats with?
