I haved used Ultra-Sheild's road race seat and currently (just 4 days ago) running there Rally sport seat (W/10 deg layback... i prefer an upright posture for Auto-X).

The rally seat is the way to go for in and out sistuations. but the road race seat has more comfort and support.
This is all mounted Via custom brakets.

Its a Recaro as you can see and it even reclines!
Saving up for the second one (the red one was second-hand and cheap!)

I think for price, feel, and style I am going to save up for a set of Corbeau CR1's in The grey or black cloth.

THanks

Its from a Golf I GTi model around '82/'84 or so. I have two of those in the 412 and both were in the bug once...The idea was that the upholstery pattern is most exactly the same as a late Mex beetle's interior, so I used the rear seats of the mex beetle and had a matching interior! Its an old trick I stole from a german guy's GL I saw once on a meeting many moons ago ;-)

i take it you need to customize the brackets/sliders for these seats? or is there a shop that sells them prefabricated for each car/model
