A few people (including myself) are probably going to be in the market for some new seats in the future, and in searching it is difficult to find a thread that is dedicated to all seats......with pictures.

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

Those aren't mine - I'm still stock in the seat department....those were in dave22's car, but now they've found a home in C45P312'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 have the Bride Zeta III Type L for my big arse also. It gives a lot more support than the stock seat and also the reclinable seats.
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.

Could the owners please state whether or not the glove compartment access was compromised or not. That may help people with their decisions.

Bride Ergo I's. Doesn't affect glove box or door closure at all. A lot more supportive than the stock seats and more cushioning, but nowhere near as supportive as a Mugen S1 or any bucket for that matter.

Has anyone tracked an S2000 w/ Bride Pros. Do they have adequete lateral support. I know being leather they are prolly just as slick as the stock seats but I was hoping the side bolsters were more aggressive giving more support.

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.

Yes they do, I'd say at least 1.5 inches.

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.

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:
