    This. They look almost as nice as S205 seats.

    What was required seat rail and interior modification wise? Very nicely done.

    Thanks, fellas. Pictures can't do the "metal flake" justice. If you've ever seen them in person, you know what I mean. The way they do it is like 3D.

    Yes, they are very comfortable. I was really worried about that, so I did a ton of reading about them first. I have back problems (even had a lumbar discectomy a couple years ago), and these seats are surprisingly supportive, especially when compared to the mushy stock seats. I haven't done a long road trip in them yet, but already I can feel less strain on my lower back. I used to be a little sore from anything longer than an hour trip in the stock seats.

    Now, getting in and out of them is another story. I've gotten good at it now, but if you've never climbed in and out of really low race seats with really high bolsters before, there is a learning period. My wife HATES them....along with most things I do to my car.

    These are the Gias IIs, which are the same as the Stradia IIs, but with much higher bolsters. The amount of lateral support you get from these bolsters is nothing short amazing. I literally take just about every corner 10 mph faster now, if not more, because I can actually focus on the handling and grip of the car and not worry primarily about keeping my butt in the seat. I used to have to plant my knee against the door and wrench my seat belt around my waste, and I still slid around!

    As for install, I just got the Bride bases specific for our car. No problems there.

    Now, wrestling with and figuring what to do with the passenger seat occupant sensor and its accompanying bladder is another story. This, by far, was the most time-consuming PITA of all, and you need to do your homework before diving into it. Be ready to do all this silliness, and in my case, find a new home for the bladder, which would not fit (too wide) in my seat at all. - 06-07 passenger detection system swap - NASIOC

    The airbag sensor resistor mod is fairly simply. It's the bladder that causes the headaches and excessive beer drinking. If you're going to do it, just PM me for all the details.

    Roger that, I'll consult with you prior to doing any seat installs if you're available to help. Still have to do more work on engine before I start with interior lol.

    On a different topic, how do you deal with E85 and travel? I know that I am able to go from VA to NJ fine, but not sure how it will affect any other major travel plans.

    Now what about remaining fuel in the tank? Is there a certain dilution limitation on switching back to the 93 map? I'd assume that you'd need to be below ~5%, so basically need to run the car down to nearly empty prior to filling up with 93. Have you experienced doing this yet?

    You got it. Yep, I've switched back and forth over 20 times with no issue, other than that normal stubborn start-up you get right after any reflash. Just also be sure to prime the pump at least 5 times (I do 10) before starting it up with the new fuel and map. This gets the other fuel out of the lines and returned to the tank.
