    Sparco Seats for WRX $$??

    For anyone that has Sparco seats in their WRX I am trying to figure out how much it would cost for 2 of the EVO 2 seats. I would like to know the total price, everything that is needed really, seats, sliders, brackets, anything needed to get them in and working right. Thanks.

    Last I looked, evo2's go for ~450/pc and 125-150 for the bracket and slider for each seat. Not cheap by any means

    I don't think I have the skills to do custom work, or the tools. If I can get it all for around 1200 bucks I would be happy.

    I disagree - you can generate just the same cornering forces at 80 mph irrespective of how fast it took you to get there

    hopefully.... I can see it now.... personal injury lawyers chasing my car looking for "whiplash" victims in my passenger seat. Nothing could make me more proud of velveeta.

    These are the EVO 2's that I want. I have sat in them before, they are pretty comfy and fit great.

    Racing seats should always be snug but most importantly comfy(not like a LAZBOY however). Obviously Sparco isn't the only manufacturer of quality seats, look into options offered by OMP, Cobra, etc....as well as within the Sparco range itself.

    The EVO 2 is for fat people by the way. There is an EVO 3 as well, but that is essentially a cloth covered lawn chair with 'Sparco' embroidered on it. Cobra offers bigger sizes for almost every model of their range, listed as GT(gigantic trunk perhaps).

    The problem is finding a place that has the seats so you can try them out, I found a place near me that has about 10-15 different seats on display and the EVO-2 felt the best for me. I am about 200 pounds and pretty tall so they work for me as the EVO 2 was designed for people over 200 pounds, and the EVO 3 is about 1.25 inches wider, but probably to wide for me. I sat in the Sparco Torino's but it felt just a tiny bit to small. But I will deffinetly go try them all out again before I purchase them. The other seat I want to try is the Fighter, its like a EVO 1.5 (size wise) but is meant for more street use, it has extra protection where you would rub getting in and out of the car, and since its a daily driver this may be a better option.

    Does that seat recline? I read somewhere that if you have a racing seat that doesn't recline, your back starts to hurt on long trips. Just something to think about if you use your car for daily driving. I personally like the look of the sparco Milano, but it is a pricey chair.

    Actually this is a little bit wrong. Assuming you choose a proper fitting seat that is snug and comfortable, the fixed back is not usually an issue(assuming your driving position is also good). More often than not, people sit too far from their steering and their seat backs are too reclined(leading to them resting less on the actual seat and holding themselves up more with their own efforts). This is a major contribution to back aches....ie people not making proper use of their seatbacks by reclining too far.
