Ive been wondering about for quite a while as well they are miles away from your head. Older seicentos have it padded and thicker so they sit much closer to your head. I wonder if puntos headrests would fit.
Thought about this myself - dont really wanna get rid of the ones that are in my sei tho (abarth ones) but I would imagine the older headrest style will fit...
So its not just me then . I thought about the cushion idea as well but I think Ill use grey gaffer tape instead of cellotape as it matches the grey trim better lol Why couldnt fiat have made them adjustable like nearly every other car It wouldnt be such a problem if the bloody things were removable (like the rear ones) then I could make a shield for the actual headrest heat the metal poles up with

Im looking for the rear headrests are the fiat seicento Sporting abarth 2002
Theyre headrestraints. Have you tried searching headrestraints on eBay etc
Thank you very much. I do have the leather steering-wheel and gear-knob both with red stiching. And the blue-checkered seats with abarth headrests. On the original sales-document it says seicento Sporting Abarth Soleil. I think it is a rare combo as mine is the only one I ever saw. I have put another tailgate on her as the one she came with was badly damaged and so were the window and spoiler. She had rolled backwards from parking into the backside of a truck.
I dont think Custard is saying that it isnt an Abarth just that the tints arent standard and the fixing for the sideskirts is a bodge. Wheels headrests sideskirts etc are all Abarth. My Abarth has the Scorpion logo on the bonnet in place of the fiat badge and just under the boot lock. But then most fiat are built with what they had to hand at the time or what Mario or Luigi could find in the parts bins so badge differences are minor.
wiv abarth bits put on it has sporting seats (sept headrests) and the carbon look dial thing the front and rear bumpers are erly sporting my engine and car excuse the middle of bumper bein cut out....if ur sayin his ent sporting then ur saying mine isent Attached Thumbnails         __________________ Get up your asleep at the wheel   Quote   05-12-2010   21 wil83fiatseicento
I thought the mk1 had a choice of red or blue...did some have an abarth logo on the headrest The mk2 then came out with the grey and black ones - possibly with abarth on the headrests although looking at some pics of the schuey not all have the abrth badge and some standard sei (sportings) dont have the headrests at the back... wondererd what the craic is...would love a set of the abarth schuey ones
the kit and alloys but their badged differently they dont have any badges on the headrests. the mk2 S and SXs have smiler seats but no rear headrests (although Im not 100 percent if the SX has or not) Attached Thumbnails   __________________   Quote   14-05-2009   7 AppleSei RIP L181 VBB   Join Date Feb 2005 Location West Yorks Posts 11494 Thanks 194 Trader Rating 4   Re seicento
They are Who by.... & why Its just a headrest with an Abarth logo on it - whoopee do. Definitely getting a faint whiff of heifer faeces from whoever is trying to flog these off at an inflated price. You could just as well buy a headrest with a Ferrari logo on it- it wont make your fiat look like a Ferrari.... or go like one for that matter. Save your money & spend it on something more worthwhile- alcohol women or whatever floats your boat.
I thought all mpi seicentos (2001 onwards) had rear head restraints but evidently that isnt the case. Keep an eye out for the late model sportingsabarthsschumachers as they will have rear headrests personally I would take the front seats too so they all match plus the sporting seats are more comfortable
The basic MPI S model didnt come with headrests which it appears is what the OP has bought for daughter You dont need to look for a sportingabarthschumi interior exclusively - In MPI form an SX interior is exactly the same (rear headrests present and colours same) barring an abarth logo stitched on the headrests of an abarth or schumi model If you want an SPI interior you will need to look at sportings
If you want to stick with the better split-folding rear seats as found on the MPI cars then the S model (Eclipse Blue cloth) did have rear headrests as an option.... so they are out there somewhere -its just a question of searching scrappiesfleabay etc or maybe someone on here will swap their rear seat section with yours as most people want to ditch their rear headrests. The SX model had headrests
