        Alright to be forreal with you, racing seats are not something you need, and shouldnt really be bought unles they are almost a must have. Corbeau and Recaro I have found are the best products decently priced. Sparco is top quality but are high in price. APC suck all around.

        Corbeau and I tihnk Recaro come with brackets fitted for YOUR car. Corbeau has on their site, a guide for picking out the bracket for your car.


        If you get a racing seat remember, you need racing harnesses too, which then in turn means EVERY TMIE YOU GET IN TE CAR YOU HAVE TO STRAP IN AND IT TAKES A LITTLE WHILE!

        Dont just want them because of F&F3 coming out, they arent all THAT worth it.

            I wanted to say that, A really good friend of mine was in a serious accident last night on 41A because some drunk kid was trying to drift in his celica and flew into the wrong lane almost killing himself and the two other people in my friends car, damn shame to I liked his altima

              lol, well not relaly funny but...

              Wanna know what though guys. racing harnesses are ALOT safer then the standard 3 point stock belts that come with te car. So safety is a plus when you buy a Racing Seat and harness for it.

                hmm, with a properly installed 4- or 5-point harness, an airbag seems almost useless. not that it's a good idea, but would you then be allowed to remove your airbags (legally). i know it's illegal to remove them if they were on the car originally, but if they were rendered useless??

                  If I could get a racing seat that is tasteful (no logos) and matches my color scheme I'd do it just for the 4 oint harness. As a bonus the 4 points are more comfortable

                      that they are. the shoulder straps move around and cut into your neck all day during long drives, and the lap belt doesn't cinch down on you and squeeze your guts out.

                      if you look at the recaro catalog online (actually i think you have to download it), they've got some really nice ones that don't have any obtrusive logos. once i get another car as my daily driver, and start going nuts on the redline, i plan to get some decent seats, and 4-pointers, and scrap the back seats.

                        dream36, usually the no name brands suck and the material tears easy and they fall apart all together. Not to meantion you usually run into height restriction.


                        sonic, the harness do not cut into your neck if properly installed, and if you were to look at my seat, I dont even have a full split between the 2 over the shoulder, its just a bump. If you are REALY worried about comfort, and want to almost not even feel them, get shoulder pads, which they sell almost EVERYWHERE. I got mine from Corbeau directly and they match the harnesses great. You could also go 2 tone and be a little different.

                        also, the lap belt doesnt really hold you down tight like a stock seat belt would, so if you were to breathe out too hard itll get loose. This is why you have to make sure you tighten the over shoulder ones a pretty well amount.

                          i meant the shoulder straps on normal 3-pointers get annoying. i know the 4point harness won't do that. grammar > me

                            question, in a 2dr vehicle I understand mounting the shoulder straps. but in a 4 dr sedan, would I have to install a bar behind the seats in order to properly attach the top straps?

                              from my experience, the straps are long enough to stretch all the way to the back speaker deck, and can be bolted into the Child Saftey Seat hole, directly on the frame. A bar is NOT necessary, but helps.

                              The only downside is that now no one can sit behind you, or comfortably for that matter.
