Hello everyone. Got my Metris 3 month ago. I went from Sprinter van and let me tell you that
there is huge difference in ride quality. Metris rides like a car. We had few snow storms already
and van goes very well.It handles even better with GLK wheels fitted with Pirelli Scorpion winter
tires.Already put back seat and now about to order 2 side windows.

You son of a gun. I do like those GLK's. My CLA's aren't bad keeping the stock tires but those are good

Got 2 seats from 2012 Odissey. Made base same hight as front ones. With 2 floor factory rails I have ability
to move them around because sometimes I need all the interior space.
I'd be cautious since it is a mod that is not compliant with OEM, the concern is if you were in an accident and somebody was in that seat and became hurt, things could go badly.

I could be wrong, but something to consider with insurance and such.

I got 3 point seatbelts instaled which I move when I turn seats. Will modify
back of the seats so i could get seatbelts attached only to the seat.Need
to think about it. Cops saw it couple of times on gas stations and never said a word ,
plus i asked if i can transport a passenger with no window - guess what, they dont know.

You put in a HONDA seat? Of all the crappy manufacturers, you chose Honda?!

Not a Mercedes, a Volvo, a Saab, nor Peugeot- not even a Suburu. A Honda? And without integrated seat belts? If that isn't illegal, it should be.

If you care about any such passengers, ditch that. Replace it with an integrated belt seat- they sell them on eBay. Even Metris ones. A Honda? Takata central? For shame!

Hey, for 50 bucks got it from local garage, so i have more seating surface on outside dog shows in summer,
not for transporting people. Was looking for full set in leather of Audi Allroad ,but didn't work out.
As i said , looking for better obtions, at least these go in and out in 2 minutes.

The Benz stripe looks cool. Where you get it done? The seller owns/have the template?
