Recaros. Or those ones they put in saleens (which may in fact be recaros). Leather mustang seats are just as bad as normal mustang seats. Only they are harder to take care of. W00t. :

i mean they give you a discount but for recaro they go to downt to like 500 each damn seat. For Corbeau probably like 300 per seat and corbeau you have to get the brackets that i hear are hard to put and the harnesses....don't think you need to with Recaro, see annoying to pick

I bet.
This is the way i see it. DO you have a rear seat delete? If no then go for the all leather look.
If you do have a rsd then you def gotta go wit the racing seats. Just looks alot better.

Thats my 2 pennys worth

Saleen = Recaro.

Both of them are competition racing seats. Either way you can not go wrong. Changing to the 99 leather seats isn't gonna be that much of a change.

You might as well ge tthe seats you got reupholstered(sp?) if your gonna get the Pony seats.

Oh wow... ok I thought the sponsorship was giving you free seats. So much for that lol. I still say go with Corbeau's... I like the Legacy seats a lot and they'd go great with your car and color scheme. The brackets are about $90 a seat, but I hear that once you get the brackets, the installation's a breeze.

I think you should just go ahead, pay the extra $$$ and get the racing seats.

Surprised no one has said anything about swamp-*** with the leather seats.

They aren't -that- hard to do. But I don't like to be pounding on brand new parts with sledgehammers to make it fit.

Summit Racing also has grey cloth racing style seats for $310.00 per. Black vinyl for $267.50. Part Number :: SCA-80-1000-62_ (i)(L or R)(/i).

Also, Brother's Performance Wharehouse sells Cobra seats for $570.00 Looks like black clothe and black leather. Part Number :: COB003.

I found Cobra to be too expensive and/or not sexy enough. Depends on which model #.

For killer looks... You can't go wrong with Recaro. Sparco is probably the most comfortable. Corbeau has the best value (but have a hammer ready.) Cobra is like... eh... Somewhere behind the other three. And MOMO > APC.

My short guide to buying racing seats.
