Sorry don't know, but I've been wanting to get new seat's myself. How much did they cost? did you get front and back?

Haha, yeah, I got owned by that too. You wont be able to hook them up properly. I even got a ETM for our cars and looked up the 05 model wire colors, and made some connectors up. My airbag light still is on. As long as your light is on, none of the airbags will work.

Ok let me try this again...how much your the seats cost? You don't know how much you payed for your seats?
Don't keep it a secret man

Well first off, I wasn't even replying to your post, actually didn't even read it. That's why I was keeping it a secret. I didn't pay anything for my 05 seats, I traded my 04 black leathers for the 05 red cloth, and vinyl. All I paid was $50 for shipping.

mine were basically free, my friend works at a dealership and she brought a new car to my house and we simply swapped out everything that was different including the entire door panels the front and back seats and the floor mats. and i just paid her some cash for her troubles. oh yeah also the new headlights! :3_yummie:

So in other words you stole the interior from a new car and now some poor guy will buy a new car with a used interior and headlights? That is not right.

That is not true, it will only not activate what is causing the light to come on. So, if your side airbags are tripping the light, it will just turn them off, and the rest of the system will work. If need be, have UnHolyTib give you a rundown!

I think the technical term is "grand larceny" and here in Texas that's categorized as a state jail felony since the value is definately over $1500 but less than $20K. If convicted it is a minimum 6 months in jail (max 2 yrs) plus a fine of up to $10K.

If that salesperson does not go to jail I will be willing to bet they will lose their job over this.

Someone needs to call the dealerships in Houston,TX and report this. Can you imagine purchasing your first brand new car to later discover it has a 2-3 year old interior with non working airbags? What if that person is in an accident and they are killed as a result? stevefrances21 and the salesperson would be liable for thier death.

Well, the airbag light will be on with both cars since the connectors will be different.

Yeah, that is pretty $hitty, they will probably test drive it and see it on, and then someone will be like, hey this is not the right interior! Someone will be doing some time, and I bet the friend flips on him, that way she can cut a deal! Someone should go to the Houston dealership and see if they can find the car they swapped interiors in and then ask the sales person why it has a different interior than the rest of the cars!

Why stop at the seats? Why not swap out the brakes and rotors? Or how about the engine and tranny ... hell, why not just swap out the VIN tags and keep the whole car!

Plus, some people on here are cops or work for Hyundai... soooo, good luck with that.

lol... If I did that... this (NT) would be the last place to find out that I did... Not a great choice bro
Ya, you don't see too many newbies on the board saying, "Yo, I just got a new 2006 Tiburon and I love it! It was free because I jacked it off this dude that was stopped at a stop light. Anyone know how to disable LoJack?"
