This post is about upgrading your Maxima rear seats. Even on my GLE, the original factory options did not offer rear seat headrests (which are so common in even the most basic cars today). The solution is to find an Infiniti I30 fourth generation — take that seat and put it in. There is no drilling or modification needed.

When I was scoping a replacement seat, I didn’t know if an I30 seat would work or not — but I found a good condition leather black seat which matches my Maxima. I spent no more than US$30 (I had to remove the seat myself from a junked car). The whole job only requires typical metric wrenches.
