racing seats..

I've always liked the look of racing seats..
problem is, i dont race..
ok.. sometimes i take on a local boy or two that's driving daddy's car.. but I doubt that warrants racing harness's, seats, rollcage... etc. etc.

would it make me a ricer if i were to get a nice black pair of racing seats and not get the harness's

plus.. how are they compared to the zx3 stock ones on comfort..
i've heard that they can be extreamely uncomfortable..

they can be, i have fixed corbeau racing seats and on long drives they get pretty bad. i don't think mine r rice...why?...they r 1/3 the weight of the stock seats, and when handling they hold me in place like i wanted. its up to you and what you decide will matter on confort

500 per seat? crap thats expensive..

I was looking at ones on ebay.. 200 for a pair.. doesnt sound bad. just search for "racing seats universal" on ebay and u'll come up with tons of them..
are they worth looking into? or should I just look elsewhere?
or is it another case like the ebay evo3 body kit..

remember you get what you pay for... unless its from a private seller selling something real. but that rarely happens.. and when it does, everyone jumps on that auction.

I love my seats, no need for my passengers to use the "oh shit" handle when you have some nice seats.

They might be rice if you get them wrapped in crushed velvet though...

I carry a couple different lines for seats and the brackets....so just let me know...and since I don't advertise the price on my website I can give you guys a pretty good deal ( as long as I can get them at a good price from my supplier).

man, thats one of my favorite parts about driving friends around... especially the chics, lol

anyway, i say get the seats if you want them. not rice, IMO. i would only buy a seat that you can actually sit in some how though, that way you know if it is comfy or not, and wont waste your money.
