Default Just installed Sparco Torino seats

I just installed these seats and god damn. I feel like I sit into a f16 fighter jet every day. The only thing I don't like or that I find very annoying are the sparco 4pt harnesses. They aren't very cool for daily driver so I think I'm going to take them out. Also one of the seats is slightly faded so I'm going to buy the spray on dye and re-dye them.

you should use your stock seat belt, not a 4pt. 4pt's are fine for autox, 5 and 6pt for track use. i've had torino's in my wrx as well, very nice seats.

Right now they are pretty tight on my hips, but I believe after a while they will fit just right. Didn't really notice a difference in height. I used the last hole for the height adjuster. I did take the harness out because it was annoying, but it worked well.

harnesses ensure that you will break your neck if you roll the car.
you should have a roll cage if you use a harness on the street.

do you know anything about harnesses?
if you install it improperly it can hurt your back but not if installed correctly
