These charcoal grey head rests are not totally uncommon - front ones that is!

BUT if you get a set of fronts, hack saw a few inches off them and they'll be fine for the rear.

I have a set somewhere, (not cut down), but I'm not quite sure where. (But I did pay £12 for them from my local breakers - in my multiple GTi days - so I'd need say, a tenner (free P&P though) - so be warned :lol: )

So I'll have a look if you're interested?

Also, they're indestructible. I've actually run over a BX headrest - in a BX - and left no damage. So don;t lose them once you've got them!

It's also fairly amusing to remove one and use it to bash someone with, using the stalk as a handle. The padding is thick enough that you probably won't do the person any damage*

*I take no responsibility for any damage or injury caused while bashing someone over the head with a BX head restraint. Please use your own discretion. Other head restraints are available and may be as effective. Best served ice cold.
this might be a signature

Phil's right

But they do fit the rear without cutting i have a set fitted in my TZD.
The only problem is you have to pull the seatback forward to remove them.
Makes it very comfortable for the rear passengers (so i have been told)
It's very dificult to drive and sit in the back at the same time. :lol:
I haven't been able to work that one out yet (give me time)

I have found a pair. PM me your details. I'll reply with an e-mail address so that you can reimburse me. Sounds mean, sorry, but money's too tight to mention (there you are, I've planted a horrible tune in your head - sorry!!!)

Ah Mick Hucknell, what an irritating pr*ck.
You'd have really thought even on a REALLY tight budget he could have bought some hair dye. Or maybe just done the world a favour and died.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
