    Thumbs up Sparco Installed!!! Review Inside...

    Thanks to PomonaWRX (nasioc) for the amazing deal. This seat really was the missing piece to my car.

    One Sparco Sprint in black and a Sparco 4 Point Harness.

    First before we go anywhere.
    I am 5'5 115lbs so I am a little guy.

    Installation:
    Install took me about 15 minutes. Most of my time was spent taking that blasted Airbag sensor off. The harness' I am sure I installed wrong so my friend is coming down to help me install those the right way, if they arent right already. I have a gutted interior so I just bolted them right where the middle buckle used to be in the back seat.

    Seat Quality:
    Very Nice quality. There are jet black and gorgeous. Thats how the car should have came from the factory. Initially they look very stiff and feel very stiff. Once you sit in them though it feels as though you are in the hands of the Lord himself. Very Very comfortable and very solid.

    Tets Drive:
    HOLY **** THESE ARE LOW!!! I cant see over the hood anymore. But man The lower feeling makes you feel like you have more control over the car. The WRX seats remind me of UPS drivers seats all hella high, but these are very aggressive. The seats held the speed test, and the drift test. I took a 20mph corner with a 55mph drift and for the first time I didnt have to grab the "Oh **** handle" the seats held me all the way through.

    Score:
    Quality 8/10
    Comf. 10/10 (for a fixed back)
    Strength 8/10
    Style 9/10

    Not really because they are fixed backs. Most likely I will try and get one STI seat and swap that WRX seat with it.

    We'll see what happens.

    Nice seat, looks great!

    BTW why the gutted interior but still carpet, door panels, etc.

    Also IIRC thats a 3point harness.. hence the 3 mounting points...

    Yeah im sorry I listed the wrong harness

    Also for the carpet and such and door panels, I keep it to keep the cops off my ass. The rear being gutted they wont hastle you, but fully gutted they will haste the hell out of you. My Celica was fully gutted and Id get hastled for it.

    My god 115 pounds that is little. Anyways, where did you get the seat from? I have been wondering about all the parts needed to put them in a WRX? like the mounting brackets, sliders, stuff like that?? How much did it run you for everything?

    I bought them off of a Nasioc member by the name of PomonaWRX (Carlo)

    It is a Sparco Sprint Seat, Sparco Harness, and Wedge Slider/Bracket.

    Are you going to Irwindale this week? I will be there. This will be my first run with all the weight mods and my new SBC-iD setting. Hoping to hit 8.5's.
