Post What's next to upgrade....seats! What are people using?

Recaro? Corbeau? I want to get something firmer than the existing seats, which will hopefully retain the great lumbar support of the Legacy GT seats.

And here's another question....when you change the seats, do you also retain the seat height adjuster, or is that something you have to consider when you get a seat.

Most of the inexpensive aftermarket seats are not very comfortable for the 4 hour plus drive, except maybe the top of the line Recaro's (over a grand for a pair !). Most aftermarket seats use the orginal seat mounting hardware with an adapter bracket for the application.

Take into account two things
1) Do you want recliners or no? If its not going to see the track much go this route.
2) How big are you. Most people don't relize that seats come in different sizes. Also you can get pads for extra support where you need it.

Only go with recaro if you have money to burn The benefits don't equal the price.
I own a set of really expensive A8's. Now I run with MOMO. Cheaper and just as comfy.
I sell seats, If you want me to send you some info, email me at

I'd go with the Sparco Tornios. They are one very sweet seat!

If you want something cheap and pretty much a direct bolt in get some RS seats. Other than that the sky's the limit

-You will lose the height adjustment

I am a big guy so size and comfort matters...
I just ordered two Sparco Milano with Sparco's Clubman seatbelt harness, which spec wise fits my needs. It has recline capability and lumbar adjustments...very sweat looking!!!

Looks like I'll be sticking with the stock seats, then. The wife and I need the height adjustment, since she uses a higher position than I do.

CRAZY KEN,

What's the difference between Milano and Torino? I believe you try them out before order them. How much did you pay for them including the mount?
