    Help with Syms Carbon/Kevlar racing seat

    Got the 04 USDM STI, just bought the Syms Carbon/Kevlar seat, anyone know of what seat rails will work with it? Gruppe S advised that maybe the Sparco rails will work, may need some modification, anyone else have any good ideas? I tried a search but came up with nothing. Anyone have this, if so, what rails were used? Heres a pic of the bracket:

    Well, I ordered the Sparco base + brackets and all that stuff, I'll post pics once it's installed, probably late next week or so....

    Yes, any bracket from OMP, Sparco and etc will work(of course, the model that fits the car). I would suggest getting new sidemounts however since the ones that come with your seat offer only one minor height adjustment(which unless you are rather long bodied, you'll have problems seeing over the dash). Furthermore, many other sidemounts from OMP and Sparco offer a wide array of height and minor tilt angle adjustments to cater the driver.

    Thanks for the help, I just spoke with my friend about the everything and they are looking into it, I will let you all know how it turns out. Figure it will look funny with one normal seat and one race seat....oh well.

    12-30-03 Seat just arrived, end of week should be installed, I will post pics then...
