Default Questions about a recaro pole position

Hello,

I'm currently looking for bucket seat for MY06.

My knees are tired to manage G force at open lapping

So I found Recaro pole position or Sparco evo 2 us would fit me when I checked their dimensions. (I'm 35-36 waist)

But from my research that recaro pole position have very lower shoulder harness holes.

And evo 2 us seems pretty wide for s2000.

After that I can't order them because what if I don't fit them well... or seat doesn't fit well for MY06.

Is there anywhere that I can try these seats? (Most of them don't have stock so)

Or If someone have recaro pole postion, I will be very happy to drive anywhere to try the seat.

Please let me know

Thank you for the read!!!

I have a Pole Position in my Vancouver car I'm trying to ship it here to put it in my Toronto car.

I wear size 33 pants and find that the Bride seats are too tight. Bride seats also have the bolsters at the thigh-knee area too high. The Pole Position having it slightly lower there makes it easy for us to get in and out of the S2000 while providing enough hold.

In about 2 months I'll have my seat. Hope this helps!

Hi DK, if you put in a seat and want to use a 4 or 5 or even 6 point harness, you will need a harness bar at the correct height. This means a roll bar, like a Hard Dog or other similar make.

Cheers,

Robin

I am 32 waist and about 5 10 and I think it's a good fit. Any wider shoulders I think I would be uncomfortable though. Pm me.

I also have a bnib recaro red velour for sale I remember you said it wouldn't look good on yellow

Usually someone at the monthly meet will have a pole position.

I am 5'10 with a 34" waist and fit fine. I live in Mississauga if you want to try it out.
