  • Are A70 and Z20 front seats the same?

    just wondering if anyone knows for sure, from what i can see in photos they look very much the same.

    looking at buying those seats covers they are selling on ebay at the moment.

      Indeed, straight bolt in fitment though so JZA70 recaros are nice easy upgrade.

          what are the differences?
          I have one of each sitting in front of me (one of the nicer z20 seats, not teh ghey ones), and they seem same to me except

          1 colour
          2 materiel (cloth vs leather)
          3 Seat belt guide over shouder (attatched to a70 seat)

          Is there something I missed???

            Admittedly I haven't looked at stock Soarer seats in a while (nor supra ones) but off the top of my head I would have actually thought they were identical seats, just with more bolstering in the Supra and a "sportier" trim...

              theyre not. look closely and youll see the difference.

              a horribly retrimmed MA70 seat



              vs a standard MZ21 Leather seat



              The stitch lines are completely different and the Soarer lumbar support is different, youll notice it tapers in far more giving a better hug. I've owned a MA70 in the past as well so yeah I can tell you theyre definitely different..

                I assumed the stitch lines were just cosmetic, but yeah given the original question, I think the seat covers would fit

                  Those top ones (horribly re-trimmed) loom more like MA61 seats than MA70 seats...

                    actually you could be right.. they kind of do look like my old MA61 ones (just not in that colour scheme)..

                      well these are what i was looking at

                      http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/280795640...84.m1423.l2649

                      looking at those pics you put up loonie the only difference i can see is the bottom part of the seat the edges seem to taper in a bit more on the z20 seats, but that could just be the photo :S

                      might give leathal a yell see if i can compare mine to the ones in his ga70.

                        what seats are better to sit in/ hold you in better? i have some supra seats in the shed ill have a look also, could just put supra seats in if the covers dont fit properly.

                        just remove that seatbelt thing and get them made without a hole for it.

                        quite interested in a set myself.

                          Quick question fellas, would aftermarket rails for an a70 (to fit brides, recaro's, etc) be a perfect fit for z20's?
                          Considering the stock rails are identical id presume they are, aren't they?
                          Cheers
