Really great replies everybody!!! Don't forget that I'm also interested in the why. There is quite a fan club for the momo steering wheels. Why are they the best? The more input the better. Thanks again for all of your replies!!

I couldn't agree more! (if price is out of the question)
The why has been explained, but you could add that recaro fits a german-style car best, just because of the name and because they use it in the faster porsches (and GTi's iirc). Still, a similar light-weight quality Sparco-seat would do well also I suppose.
I like th epole position model best because I think it has a wider seat (for my fat *ss )

I absolutely agree, plus they can be had on the cheap from the race car guys. I scored a set of NICE leather 944 seats from a racetrack refugee for way less than I could have reupholstered my stock Sport Bug seats, or bought any Sparco, Corbeau, Recarro, or MOMO seats.

I would love to have had any of the aforementioned lounges in my car, but to me, money is definitely an object,..and I don't want to spend much more.

Hi

Every Momo steering wheel I have ever used was made to very high standard, particularly the hub and horn button.

I have a set of vintage Recaro Concorde's from my old 1302, they are going to go in my new 1303, I bought them in 1978, the vinyl still looks like new and the seats are as solid as when I bought them.

I have adapted a set of Honda Prelude seats to my daily 1303 and they are very comfortable. they are also not to big for a bug interior.

Steve

The Celica seats in my '73 which are mounted on bugpack frames are as comfortable as my wifes A6 - they are awesome - thanks again Dave!!!

As for the steering wheel I am looking to replace mine with a Momo and was looking at the Monte Carlo - do they all have the same dish?

Toyota MR2 seats, the drivers seat has like 5 or 6 adjustments.
Forward and back, recline, lumbar in and out, side bolsters in or out, headrest up and down and tilt front or back, etc.



I really like them, they are nice even on the longest ride and I have a bad back.
