Post Seeking seats

I'm in the market for getting some new seats for my RS, and was wondering if anyone out there had any suggestions so I can narrow things down without having to run around town parking my arse on every seat I see-

I'm a small, bony-assed guy at about 5'7" 140 pounds- so I'm figuring a seat designed for a small donkey, or possibly a very large badger would work out well for me- anyone have any thoughts?

The Recaro SRD is supposed to fit the smaller guys pretty well. That might be one of the ones you do try to seek out.

You would fit the Sparco Evo that's sitting in my closet perfectly.

Yeah, I pulled it out of my car yesterday & stuck it in the closet so Caesar wouldn't find it... but he did, & the first thing he did was to jump into it & take a nap!

Hey Goose, hate to bear ill tidings but your best bet is to run around and park your arse in every seat you see. a seat may fit your dimensions on paper but be torture to actually sit in, conversley you could be suprised by the fit of a seat that you assume will not fit. i took months doing just that; sitting in every seat i could. i eventually settled on Sparco Torino's, having tried seats from every one of the better companies. they fit me very well; i am 5'11 200lbs with a 33 waist. having said that; my girlfriend is not lost in them and she is 5'6 and about 95lbs less then me... so shop around.

Hey, M8...I'm almost exactly your size, man! What other seats did you try before setting on the Torinos, and how are they holding up?
