Ok.. I made a post about this a while back but I think it got deleted...

I'm after some comfy ( gotta be comfy ) aftermarket seats. Does anyone know of anywhere that sells them ?? Also, can anyone recommend a certain make etc ??

How much would it cost to get the original seats re-upholsered ?? ( leather )

I think you'll find MOST aftermarket one's seem to be racing bucket seats...not to comfortable. I'd try and find either some MR2 spec Recaros (Saw some in a mates 1998 vvti G-limited...one of the one's with one of the 1000 engines ever made for the MR2 :o ) or some from a WRX.

Cheers

I remember from when I was a Toyota parts manager we priced up a single MR2 seat & because you have to buy all the parts that make up the seat seperately it came to about £2000!! :o

You cant buy a complete seat. :(

You could just get the back upright leather section for your seat if its just the leather wearing but still about £500!

what about this sort of seat from dedezign ?? Looks a bit more comfy... obviously not in that colour.. maybe black/red.

I hate how toyota make you buy the parts as apposed to the whole thing. I was looking for a new tbar roof panel.. they said I had to buy the glass.. the seals.. the locking mech.... lol .. WTF ?!!

It's called making money! By selling all the parts separately, they can charge more for the individual items. It kinda of hides the price of the item by breaking it up into smaller chunks.

Your best bet her em8 is to go into a racing shop. (Follow rice boys shouldnt b 2 hard 2 keep up w. em ;) )

They usually hae quite a few eats on display, just sit in emand try em out. I did that and was suprised that whilst 2 seats may look the same they can feel really different. I also tested it against the ways i drive, i.e. i rest my left arm on the centre panel if im steering w. my right arm, or my right arms againt the door etc.

At the end of the day you want a seat that'l be comfortable for you cos ur the one driving.
