I'd look towards C5 seats if you want to upgrade.

A lot of the guys in the USA are doing this to their C3's and they look great. Very comfortable as well.

I've seen pairs pop up on ebay a few times, normally around $500 ish a pair. Which is cheaper than buying all the foam and covers etc to recover C3 seats!

I put 80 seats in my 78 R/hand seat bolted straight in. L/hand seat had to use the bottom half of 78 & top half of 80.Had to change the adjuster arm also.The seat adjuster teeth are also a different pitch.

You'll have to use the C3 runners for the C4 seats and modify them slightly.  The C4 seats will sit higher than the C3 ones so if you are tall you might have problems.
