The WRX is 9.5 years old and the driver side seat back and carpet look every bit of it. I need to replace the carpet - seems easy enough. Are there good aftermarket options here? Haven't dug into that much yet.
The seat is more complicated obviously. The OEM covers seem to come off. I found what appear to be a decent set of OEM covers on NASIOC however I've never liked the OEM fabric. The STi material is much nicer. I suppose new OEM covers would cost an awful lot.
Was looking at 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan Seat Covers from GT Covers but know nothing about them. A local shop with a good reputation might be a better choice.
My other concern - I'm a big guy, 6' 3" 300 pound-ish. I've done a fair amount of autox and other hard cornering over the years. Has anyone ever heard of the seat frames actually breaking? I'd hate to drop $ into re-upholstering and have that happen. There are a few sets of STi seats on NASIOC I've expressed interest in.
Your thoughts, ideas and the like please?
