    Cool Aftermarket seats

    Has anyone replaced the seats?
    They are VERY uncomfortable, mainly the headrest...
    I was looking at a set of racing seats only because I find them extremely comfortable.
    No one is racing anywhere with 75 HP
    I was looking at this:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/351180621277...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
    I wanted to know about the sensors plugged into the factory seats. I know one is for a side seat airbag, what is the other connection?
    Also, has anyone found a mounting bracket that fits the universal type of seats?

    I think the other sensor detects if someone is on the seat (for the seatbelt reminder light/buzzer).

    Ohh, maybe for the passenger airbag to turn on for the dash.

    Go on Nengun Performance and you can find Recaro brackets for the chassis.

    Aftermarket seats are pretty universal so if you get a bit creative I'm sure you can fit a seat other than Recaro on the bracket.

    Well I have taken apart one of the seats and it looks like I can make the seat rails.

    This is going to be all custom.

    A lot of guys who don't like the headrest have removed it and turned it around.

    Personally, I didn't have an issue with it when I had my test Mirage for a week. But, I'm also on the short side (5' 6").

    i just want something with better support. i bought a set of EVO1 Recaro seats, the sliders and the mounts for the bottom of the seat is pretty darn close to lining up but a bracket will be required. the fun part is i still want heated seats and the POD's system weight sensor out of the passenger seat.
