Post Aftermarket seat preferences

Between the SPARCO Torino and the Recaro Sport - what do people prefer and why?
I am 6'5'' and 220, and am dying to replace the strock seat in my 00 RS. Please give specifics, and also where to find the best price on either of these two.
I would also need factory slider adjustability.

Sorry to say this, but you're gonna have to try them yourself. Even if somebody is the same build as you, not every seat fits everybody well.

I tell a lot of people this, being a grad student in ergonomics .

Best thing to do is find a local speed shop or other scooby owners who will let you try out their seats to see what fits best. I have a set of Prodrive P1 seats that fits my 5'9 and 150 body great..but thats just for me

Mike,
do you have a photo of the seats? Are they the black and blue ones? If so where did you get them?
