Headrest for middle rear seat passenger
#1
Hi
My recently purchased 2015 Astra J Hatch has no headrest for the middle back seat passenger.
Would anyone know of an aftermarket/retrofit accessory that can be fitted to do the job? I have seen these:

The opel J SRI's are the only cloth variant that I have seen with middle head rest, suppose that you could look on the european ebay web sites.

Vauxhall dropped the middle headrest in a bid save money it became an O/E.
I have a full set of rear leather headrest in the loft.

How does the middle headrest attach to the seat? I might be interested in buying yours if they would fit, but my seats are fabric, not leather.
I am in Basingstoke. Alternatively I am looking at these at £54:

There are no holes in mine. If I press hard I can feel a couple of depressions where the holes should be but I would have to cut in to the cloth to reach them, and no way of telling if they are re-enforced enough to hold the headrests securely. No clip to hold in place, nothing. Completely designed out.

I personally wouldn't bother then.
You could always look at getting a set of full leather with heated front seats.
