Re: eBay seats

I've heard really bad things about these, like the part to adjust the angle breaking and them just falling back. Seats hold you in place, if they fail then someone could seriously get injured. I'm all for replica/low-end/cheap things but I wouldn't cheap out on them, especially since they're so important in accidents. just my opinion.

Re: eBay seats

Don't do it. But if you must, go cloth. I would say first ones are your best bad choice

Re: eBay seats

these things aren't crash tested or safety rated. I wouldn't do it.

Re: eBay seats

Hahah fake FAKE seats. Seats cost a lot of money for a reason, your best bet is a replica of some famous brand like BRIDE or RECARO, they cost less, but a still reliable. The only drawback is that you have to buy a Recaro sticker....

Re: eBay seats

Idk if you live in or around Chicago but here are some nice seats. Not mine. I wish I had money for these I'd pick them up so fast. XD Honda S2000 AP1 seats - $600 (Clarendon Hills)

Re: eBay seats

A buddy of mine got some eBay racing seats and they were just awful. Poorly made, fell apart, just wouldn't recommend them. Put the money into wrapping your stock seats or go RSX or s2k.

Yeah, buy things from eBay at your own discretion, but when it comes to safety, stay off that ****.
