Default Poll: Sparco or STi?

Well, after doing some serious math and thinking, I FINALLY decided that for sure the swap route isn't the best idea at the moment (Sorry Chris...again). Well, I decided to pickup a set of seats instead(hated the stock ones since day one).

I've got two choices. I can neither get a set of Sparco Torino w/mounting brackets (asking $1200cdn/pair [appx 865USD]) or Sti Ver4 (asking $1500cdn/pair [appx 1080USD])

Sparco Torino (Grey centre/blue sides)


STi Ver4


Hmm, no idea how to set up a poll, but free free to voice your opinions.

EDIT: I'm really leaning towards Sparcos

Ya, tried them both. I agree, the Torinos are way more comfortable than the STi. (wasn't the ver4 though)

N/A is selling his JDM WRX seats from a '93.. they are GREAT for support.. $500 for the pair. That'd be shipping from MD(I assume he will ship, but I don't know). Check out the for sale, or Mid-A forum. Or PM him..

Smile sparcos

I love the STi seats, but Sparco is made especially for racing comfort and support.

From the aesthetic perspective, the Sparcos look better in just about any car while the STi's tend to be more car specific. And most importantly, "Sparco Torino" is just darn fun to say! Oh, and you get to put a Sparco sticker on your car.

p.s. There's a check box to post a poll when you start a thread with the initial post. It's in the options section.
