So, hopefully a few more will contribute some photos and what not to this thread. Pictures don't even have to be of your car.
It looks as though I only have one decent picture to contribute:
Bride Ergo II's

My impressions of them are (with my 5'8" height and 33" waist): you're in with a tight fit on your thighs and some nut crushing after a few blocks :eek: - but - with some break in they get more comfortable :thumbup: ......for back coverage and upper bolsters they are very comfortable and fit like a glove.
These do not hinder the use of the glove box.
:shout: now let's get some more people with different seats in here......and don't forget the pics ;)

I'm running off a Mugen seat bracket because the Bride bracket was higher than the Mugen, so then it made my thigh rub on the steering wheel.
I also have the Ergo I on my passenger seat. I had the Ergo before, but after I started tracking, I wanted a seat with more support. I tried the Mugens. They were pretty small, I did fit, but once I wore jeans and a jacket, I was squished in the seat.
Now for reference, I'm 6'1", 36 waist and I weigh 230lbs. (I KNOW I KNOW, I need to lose some weight)
I also tried the Spoon seat, the butt support is smaller, so then you sort of sink in more with the seat. Also the padding is limited, you're basically sitting on carbon. But with the price being double the Bride, I chose the Bride instead.
I'll get more pics of my seats later, we also have a Spoon seat in AJ PwR's car and a Mugen one.

Bride Artis II and Artis II Navi. Way more supportive then the stock seats, don't even bother if your waste is bigger then a 34". No issues with door or compartment. I had no problems taking this on 1000 mile trips and on the track. According to some people Bride's aren't safe. But on their website it states the following
"TECHNOLOGY FOR SAFETY"
"We concentrate on safety, to enhance our sports seats to perform better. Every sport seat goes through various crash tests to conform with the safety standard of Japanese circuit racing: F.I.A. OFFICIAL-HOMOLOGATION. "
Brides are used in D1 and JGTC so you decide on your own.

ANyone have any idea which seats are compatible with which brackets? Other than brides what else works with the mugen brackets. Or which bracket is the lowest and what seats are compatible with it? THanks

For bucket seats, we've tried:
Mugen seat w/ Mugen bracket
Spoon seat w/ Mugen bracket
Bride Zeta III w/ Mugen bracket
Recaro SPG w/ Mugen bracket
Mugen seat w/ Bride bracket
Bride seat w/ Bride bracket
And for reclinable
Bride Ergo's with Bride brackets
The lowest bracket we know is still Mugen's.

any rails lower than these two?
I would honestly stay away from Taitec rails. The method in which you have to slide the rails forward and backward is a pain in the ass.
There are two latches you have to unhook in order to slide the seats, and there is practically no room to slide your hand down to reach the inner latch (closet to center console) and will probably cut yourself in the process.

Thanx for clarifying this for me. Looks like I'll have to go with the Mugen bracket for my Exas III for extra room when I get my Cusco 6-point as soon as I sell my 5-point :thumbup:
