Read many posts about how to defeat the dreaded air bag light after swapping a non-factory driver's seat in and decided to give it a go. Found a used bracket here for my 2013 WRX and was able to get a new slider and mounting hardware online for $77 shipped. The really good deal was the seat itself; purchased from Street Side Auto for $356.79 ($25 discount until May 2) shipped! Seems to be the best online deal I could find and pulled the trigger.

Will update the thread when everything arrives and I start my install. Wish me luck.

Just finished the seat install tonight. Props to OG Racing for having a new set of replacement seat plastic pieces in stock. Order the seat and it came with the left plastic base shattered the first time, so I sent it back. The second arrived in a little better box but the same problem with the plastic base under the lever broken. Told the seller that I would be willing to keep it and try to repair the seat if they could give me a discount further on the seat, and they did refund me another $83. Worked in my favor as the replacment pieces only cost me $10.50 with tax from OG Racing.

Will try and get some pictures tomorrow to post up. The 3.3 ohm 1/2 watt resistor given to me by a fellow member worked like a charm. No airbag light! I was really nervous that it wasn't going to work after reading so many threads about the problem people had with them. I can tell you it works in my 2013 WRX!

I forgot how low a racing seat sits in a car until I climb into my new Sparco tonight. Really glad the steering wheel tilts and telescopes in the car . My legs feel really close the floor now. Will take a drive back out to OG Racing tomorrow and see if the have the Sparco Leg Cushions in stock and try one out on the floor demo. Oh, they have just about every Sparco seat you can think of in a fix mount demo platform for a buyer to try out. Great for those trying to decide which seat to go with.

That's all for now. Like I said will post pics tomorrow after a take nice ride to help break the seat in a bit.
