Default Anyone try Bride Zeta 3 or Zeta 3 plus in a s2000?

I am interested in trying to Bride Zeta 3 plus seat in my s2000 since it should be narrow enough to fit properly on side brackets so the seat hits the floor. Anyone have this seat in their s2k? It is similar to the Zeta 3 model but the harness holes are larger and the shoulders are wider as well. I don't care about middle compartment since it is removed in my track car, only care about seat hitting door trim. I was considering Vios 3 but heard it only fits people with 32 size waist or smaller.

I currently have a sparco ergo medium but it is too wide at the base to fit properly on side brackets (i need to have the bracket L part face inward in order for seat to work). Want a seat that hits the floor.

My waist size is 33 and height 6'

Currently have Zeta III type L (large) installed with Bride seat rails

they will not hit the door trim

but it will also not sit all the way to the bottom to hit the floor (maybe it can with different rail, but I can't with my bride rails)

no problem whatsoever.

I have bride zeta 3 l's with FG rails. the drivers seat will touch the door card if your not all the way back. In terms of comfort, i've slept in them a few times.

There is a good possibility the Zeta III Plus will hit the door cards. As you can see the plus is 5mm wider on each side of the wings. Here are the dimensions of each seat:

Are you able to mount that seat to the floor in an S2k? Does it fit between the side mounts with the "L" portion facing outward so you can drop the seat and not blocked by side mount brackets.

Yea that worries me. My Sparco Ergo medium is not as wide in the shoulders and it touches the door slightly. So the plus probably won't fit unless you remove the door trim or trim the shoulder down. I am not worried about the center console side since my car has it removed for roll bar.

I assume this is a street driven car and that's why you're not getting a halo seat?

it is track car. But halos from other companies seem to be too wide on base to mount to floor. The only other seat I saw was maybe Sparco sprint II.

If the Halo portion of the seat is touching the door, there's a problem... Its the shoulders that can cause an issue. I have the Sparco Pro-ADV GripTech and its a tight squeeze with no door card. The halo is well above that - window height.

It's a bit wide and will hit the door card. I would recommend a Recaro Profi or Bride Vios III over the Bride Zeta III.
