I wish someone around the DMV area had these so I can try them out.

Seat looks great. Can you post some closeups of the seat with the door closed? I'd like to see how much contact is made.

Hmm, you're nearby as well.. lol

Thank ya sir. Ill take some pix and add em to the review. The wing "kisses" the door when the door is closed, but I dont think it affects door closure.

That's a really nice looking seat, I wish Recaro could have made the upper harness holes like that.
The way you mounted the buckle seems a bit unsafe though?
Should at least pull it up fully so there i no gap under the bolt, a fitting rear seat buckle from another car would probably be best though.

I can sell the PCI brackets, with or without sliders, in combination with a seat. Email me what you're looking for and I will provide a quote.

Thanks Mark. Some of my buddies have expressed interest in leather or different upholstery colors (red). Are those possible options?
Also, how does the lumbar options work?
The back cushion seals with velcro across the bottom. Open the bottom and slide the bladder behind the foam; then re-seal the bottom. You can either (1) tuck the tube between the side and cushions or (2) you or us can drill a small hole where we provide a rubber grommet under the rear of the seat so the tube exits under the shell. There is a power option that comes with everything needed but you must attach power and ground and mount the switch. I only have one power unit in stock but usually can get more in about a week.





I have two upholstery factories working on patterns to quote custom covers, but since all the seats I have come covered, you're paying for re-upholstery.

Good call. Ill take a look at pulling the buckle up fully. I heard a mazda 626 receiver may work, need to do more research.

I found this thread on what receivers some others have used.

I thought the whole point of this abe, private label seat is so you could retain use of the factory receptacle? I would have found a better seat rail that could accomodate that.

Is the seat actually any lower than the stock seat? It's difficult to tell from your pictures.
I used to have an SPG on Buddy Club rails and it could get low - I'm 5'10" all torso. Really interested in these as a replacement for stock seats, mostly for daily driving to get lower.
