High quality seats??? Is there any?
« on: 15:21, Mon 15 September 2008 »
I have always wondered that is there any good ( I am not speaking about Recaro prices end models) sport seats.

IF you  drive long distances (and use car also in drag racing and tracks), use car in town etc. mostly.

What you recommend and what you have used?

Which model is good for small people, which one is good for larger, how about mid sized man (about 6'2'' and 200 pounds)?

I am just curious that is there any?

I found the cobra clubmans very comfortable, more so than my cobra Monaco s for long distance. Recaro's are comfy as well, i had some in my old GTT... You could try to retro fit some subaru seats, they're comfy as well....
Standard seats are pretty good in the GTT when the bolsters are new.

If you guys know place somewhere where are reasonable prices for FK Automotive seats, Recaro seats etc. please inform me. It seems that there are very few fully black (leather) or silver/grey and black seats.

Need is adjustable (little bit like FK Race 4 seat, or like Recaro Cross Speed) and quite comfortable. :)

Flip is must...  8)

For me personally the seats in my old 205 GTI Pug were and still are the best. I'm only 5ft 8", but they were the most comfy.

After looking around....I found myself between two different seats...phew...this is difficult...

I found out that leather seats are "slippery" and not good for track etc...so I will buy fabric seats...

let me know which I should use...vote please.

First one is Cobra Daytona: http://www.superstreetonline.com/projec ... to_01.html

Second one is Corbeau...which should be good brand too: http://www.dcp-shop.co.uk/buy-car-acces ... 20d7f97a6d

Personally I would go for the Cobra ones but that is not based on anything other than looks  :lol:

I think that I will choose Cobras too...now...it seems that no one is willing to ship to Finland. Even with the shipping costs those seats are cheaper when those are shipped to Finland, than if I buy from here...
