That depends on if you want to do work.

Mine came with modified XT seats. I'm in the process of replaced those with SVX seats.

I've heard of older ford escort seats fitting like oem, and mitsubishi eclipse seats as well. Might be worth looking into. I'd start combing the junkyards for ea81s...

I've gone with seats from an escort in my ea81 wagon. It was fairly easy. I used front seats from a `97 escort wagon, would have liked some from a GT, but couldn't find ones that would match. Then use your stock ea81 seat rails, and oval out the rear holes about an 1/8 inch. Then simply install them on to the escort seats. It was super easy, and they are much more comfortable

Also a direct match for the escort seats is mazda mx3

I used to have an mx3 that came with no seats so i put escort seats in. Later i got the seats back from the p/o they are nice buckets that sit alot lower.
Not sure if it helps at all, just passin on some info.
