Puma NTO seats vs. Exmoor

I missed the boat last year with all of the available NTO seats. Now it seems like everyone wants a premium for them...and they are missing something and need to shipped, etc. All of a sudden, a set of cheap Exmoors from Roversnorth seems to be a lot better of a deal and they pick up the phone.

Any experience with the exmoors? I've heard back in the day the quality was crap, but for the price these days, I figure they are decent.

Thanks for any feedback.

I got Exmoor seats when I lived in the UK in 2012. The quality is great. Mine are modular in black vinyl and rear seats are classic low backs. Low backs are annoying because they don't fully fold down. Aside from that quality is great.

It's only about $1k to order the parts to build two new Puma front seats from LR along with two exmoor retrim kits. That's what I'm going to do.

check out LRI solutions in the UK, they seem to have a good selection and the GBP is weak

Do they ship here? Their eBay add says they don't.

Yes they do. I just ordered something from them yesterday, and have in the past. They prefer bank wire (Use transferwise.com for cheapest transfer) but will do paypal if you pay the fee. I deal with a woman named Chantal (chantal@lrisolutions.co.uk ).

I enquired about some seats from LRI Solutions once. I didn't go through with it because the shipping was very expensive. Much more than ordering parts from LR or a used set already stateside.

Yeah I tried to use LRI but they had poor response time. By the time they got back to me, they sold the seats I wanted. But I might try and give them another shot.

This time I'll just buy it on their website instead of talking. That didn't seem to work.

Exmoor has many grades and designs of seats. Tdci seats are high quality.
I have a pair of these in grey leather going into a 90.

I'd like to know more about this. That number seems low for two seats. Does that assume you are using your existing seat frame and sliders?
