I want it. Would an aluminum roll cage be legal? Just curious, I always see steel ones.

Idk but I never seen one. But if u go with lightweight racing seats it will be balanced with the weight u put in from the roll cage.

Low $2k

There is a VERY big difference in one piece racing seats compare to the stock recaros but if u DD idk . I try every single seat in the market from momo, omp, corbeau, recaros (pole position) and the sparcos for me where head and shoulders above the rest in quality, comfort and looks.
Auto craze store in downtown miami had every brand in store so the choice was very simple seen them side by side and seating on them.

I saw both the black and red side by side at the store I bought it and if u have a red car it was an obvious choice! They truly look better and the red makes them look and feel more exclusive.
Now if you have a toy blue car color then the red might be a bold move even tho I still thing will look good.

Looks good! Now you have a great excuse to not let anyone else drive your car. "If the seat don't fit, you must not sit"

So what reason did they give you for pulling you over? BC they can't pull you for going 5 over, it's actually illegal for them to write you a ticket that isn't 10+ over in GA except for state troopers.
