    JDM STi Seats

    There's 3 different seats that I've seen and I'm just trying to clarify what seat came from what model.

    First are similar to the USDM STi seats but have a ribbed look in spots near the shoulders and the outer thigh.

    The next are also similar to the USDM STi seats, but they have a little black island in the midst of the blue fabric kind of in the crotch area.

    Third do not resemble any of these. They're still blue/black but a more basic shape, black supports and blue down the middle. They have "STi" embroidered in white as opposed to pink and I think they're made by Recaro.

    Can anyone help me out?

    the JDM V7s are the ones with the black near the crotch... they are much narrower and feel most excellent. it is possible that the JDM V8s are the same but i cant say for sure.

    USDM V8s are considerably wider and just have blue down the center with the pink embroidery, but you probably already know that.

    Hm...here's a link to the ones I described with the "ribbed" appearence -
    eBay
    The seller say's they're from an '04 which would make it a V8, but they're not the seats in the link topnotch posted, so maybe someone screwed up and one of them is actually V7? BTW topnotch, yes, I have seen those seats in black.

    And this guy's got the Recaros I was talking about -
    Here
    What car did these come in? Or are they an option in Japan?

    The All-Black STi seats are the ones that come stock on the STi Spec-C. So yeah, they're not only gonna be rare but also pretty expensive.

    The V8 Spec-C front seats will probably run you about $2,000. KingofImports.com was offering package deals for the complete Spec-C interior (front & rears, along with the door inserts) for about $2,600 a while back.

    The pricing is pretty much the same for the S202 seats also.
