    OMP seats!!!!

    so i'm gonna get an OMP seat for x-mas from my dad who can get them from a dealer. so now that i have the option of pretty much any seat other than the super duper carbon babies i'm at a loss. anyone have any opinions on what to get, i've sat in the RS and loved it compared to many recaros and sparcos' that i've sat in. here is the spread i have to consider http://www.ompracing.it/prodotti.htm...ngelanguage=en

    Unless it is a race car, I would rather have the side airbags of the stockers.

    now how is that supposed to help me decide what seat to willfully endanger my own life with?

    i agree w/ the WRC assesment, i like the quilting for some reason. so now how about between the WRC and the ASR? the ASR comes w/ an included extra back cusion.

    I like the WRC's...

    How much do these set you back? A friend of mine had an OMP seat in his 03 Civic that was really comfortable and I liked it a lot.

    retail for the fiberglass WRC is around $650, but my dad/family hookup through a dealer gets them at cost, usually about 35%-50% less than retail. OMP seats dont compare to others, they are in a different category w/the likes of high end recaros' and maybe sparcos', although the OMP's fabric and padding lasts longer. still having trouble making the final choice. i've got till next mon. to place the order.

    The best seat is the seat that fits the driver comfortably and securely in the given car. In part this has to do with the side mounting adjustment for tilt and height in the given car. Of course, if you want to be all picky about it, there are companies that can custom a seat for you....eg Sparco, if you want to get your butt molded.
