McDoom Well my 02 svt seats are nice but are not adequate for intense g corners I find my ass sliding to much to the side IMO.

red2009se Seats have been customized with manual lumbar support and bolster padding, it is alot better! I can add more lumber with the hand pump, just like some chairs.

What's funny is that i have some leather 07 seats sitting right next to me, but I think they are better than my SVT seats (they have bigger side and leg bolsters). But also the 01 seats from my ZX3 are better too (they also have bigger leg bolsters and the feel narrower).
Maybe if you keep the hight of the back up so the seat is as high off the floorboard as it can be it might be more comfortable. I need every bit of headroom i can get so i keep my down low. I think when its down low is when its the most painful.

That's a joke, right?

If you want crazy comfortable seats that keep you in place, get the Recaros from the '03-'04 EAP packaged SVTs!

All SVT seats have power height adjustment on the driverside, but only SVTs with the winter package have heating pads wired in (all Recaros have heat). Everything else is manual.

red2009se You may be able to fit the SVT seat cushions onto the 07 seat rack. Is that viable?

I'm getting my 09 seats customized with bolstering and lumbar support. I had same on my 2002 ZX5.

GodLovesUgly yeah, you need all the wires man, otherwise the heated option won't work. i think the air bag would be turned off as well. it's not plug and play, which sucks.
they are comfortable, just REALLY heavy.

Buickboy not too sure on the power part but if you do find a clean set of SVT seats you should pick up the passenger and rear as well. if and when you decide to sell the car or the seats a complete set will be worth a bit more than one
