Undoubtedly, the interior of a bus offers gigantic scope for customization.
We can contribute to the success of your project. Reducing driving noise is also high on the wish list of many bus drivers who often use their Bulli as a travel vehicle.
Seats are always a big topic. The market for quality retrofit seats is limited and usually these are correspondingly expensive. Also used upgrade pilot-seats from top-comfort T4 are rare and hardly improve the lack of cornering.
Usually tall drivers have some struggels with the reduced headroom. Audi TT (model 8N) seats are still popular and for the T4 also our first choice. Because:
Installing a TT seat can be quite easy if you screw or weld it to the original T4 console. But this solution leads to a way too high seat position, even if the height adjustment is fully lowered. In fact the height adjustment is totally useless. National homologation standards have to be respected pls check with your transportation authorities. ( In germany TÜV or DEKRA)
That's exactly why we developed Alma.
Alma positions the seat at the ergonomically correct position. The height is chosen so that the seating position ranges from slightly lower than series to slightly higher.
Alma is for Motorsport only!!
Of course, the space under the seat is lower than in the stock arrangement. A solution was found with the change to an Optima Yellow Top, which can be mounted horizontally. The brackets must be made on your own, the console has all the relevant holes.
If you switch the Audi seats from left to right, so swap their sides (exchange of the rear cross member required) you will find a couple of neat advantages:
good news first: the T4 switch can operate the TT-heating mats.
You just need to build a small adaptor-harness
When the sides have been changed, an armrest can be mounted in the airbag holder with the help of Anouk.
ATTENTION: Work on the airbag must only be carried out by qualified personnel. Ask a specialist to disassemble, corer and dispose of the old airbag.
