    What are the best, most comfortable and priced reasonable aftermarket seats for our cars?

    :hmm:

    Don't go with sparco standard ones. I'm 6'2, 190 and i barely fit in them and it hurt on long drives.

    are the evo seats able to bolt right in? or are their mounting brackets different?

    from what i heard wedge brackets make your seats sit high...im 6'4'' so this was not an option for me, i picked up some corbeau seat brackets and drilled holes and bolted the evo rails right into them and then bolted them down into the car. I got about 1" of clearance from my head to the roof.

    :cool: exactly what I have bolted down on my Gsx. With the exception of red stitching (9mr SE edition ;)) I also just bought the universal racing seat brackets off eBay and drilled holes, and bolted Evo seat rails to it. Clean install. I'm also 5'7 160, so I sit perfect in them but a lil high to be honest. Makes seeing the road a lot easier tho, I can now finally see the street over the hood bulge LOL.

    Evo seats are very comfortable.. I have a pair of Corbeau A4's. They aren't too expensive and they are comfortable and they keep you very planted in the seat. Great seat for road racing or drag racing.

    love my evo 3 seats I stole out of the evo 3 and put into the spyder. I made my own rails and mounts. they are 1/2'' off the floor. did this so I could buy carbon bride lowmax seats for the evo.

    I fit in the the jdm skinny ass seats just fine and i am 6'2'' and 240lbs. just getting out is a pain but i no longet hit my head on the top or my head is over the windsheild

    Do these bolt right in or do you need brackets for them? (I have a 95 eagle talon tsi if that matters or not)

    No. They do not. You'll need to purchase a new bracket and probably a slider.
