Corbeau... as i have seen it is top of the line. maybe i'm wrong though. no possible v6s hook up? maybe trade some fuel parts for a driver's seat only? congrats, that's cool.

Well its hard to pick Recaro b/c of their prices. But I think Recaro is BETTER in quality and I would assume comfort, but TWICE the price of Corbeau...wonder how sponsorship works with Recaro...hmmm

if i had the money i would get theirs!

their cheapest seats are like 600

where for that money i could get a PAIR of corbeau seats.

But the people at Recaro sent a nicer email and seem more friendly. When i called Corbeau they said, "hold on I may have given your slot away already, let me check" b/c i hadn't called immediately after I got the email. It DOES say when you are ready to buy the seats to call, not to call for info :no:

And if it is all the way back your legs can hit it.

Finally... The passenger seat did NOT fit. The seat belt receiver bracket hits the transmission hump. I pounded both of the brackets with a sledgehammer for about 20 minutes a piece to get them to fit good. If I didn't do that, everywhere I went I would hear "squeak squeak squeak" as the passenger seat rubbed up against the vinyl of the door. I had to bolt the back of the seat in first, and tilt/push/lean on the front of the seat to even get it over far enough and aligned with the floor to not hit the door. It was a lot of work. But... They are MUCH nicer than stock. They are just kind of... D.I.Y. Which is pretty ridiculous for the price.

i was just saying it because they look like cheap pieces of **** no offense or anything.. but they look so fake. and the flamboyant red/pink color they have is disturbing.

Nope. Those are CR1s. The legacy ones looked way too aggressive on the kidneys.
