Been looking around a bit, and keep hearing about people finding seats out of a stock car that seem to just work out really nicely...I'm not really looking to buy anything expensive, just something that isn't ripped up like my leather seats. Anyone got any suggestions what to look for when I go to the junkyard this week?? And if someone wants to offer something keep it to pm's please. Thanks

s2000, ep3, GTi's, evo, STi's, corvettes, ect Pretty much any higher end sporty or sports car. Now getting them to fit might be a different question.

Celica seats are the broadest, flattest seats I've ever seen in a pseudo sports car. I wouldn't recommend them.

As far as race buckets, I wouldn't risk my life in any "ebay" seats. Unless you can find some seats on ebay that are FIA certified (Recaro, Sparco, etc.) I wouldn't buy any of them.

A friend of mine had some APC seats in a Civic and they had the flimsiest backs I've come across. I would be skeptical of their strength in a rear and collision.

Yea, I don't really wanna spend a shit ton on brand name seats, but want something that won't fold into 15 pieces if I get into an accident...been thinking about opening up a thread like this for a while, just always forgot about it and never got around to it.

And turbolover...did you end up liking anything at Linn State or no...?

I've got Sparco Sprints in my 1g and they are amazingly comfortable for a steel framed bucket. My gf actually claims that they are more comfortable than the Teg seats in my Civic.
