I like the lateral support better on the STi seats. I find the quality of the material used on the STi seats noticably better than the WRX seats. That's all I can recall, since I departed company with my 13.5 sec WRX last July.

Bleh... don't want to dis any bulkier people out there, but I find the STi seats too loose for my butt... the 02-03 seats are way for supportive for thinner people, and all the magazine editors in the US said that it was a little on the tight side. So for 04 they made the seats bigger for those Americans... when I drove the STi the car was tight but I was loose... same when I sit inside a 04 WRX...

it's just that i'm so tired of all the shipping crap... duties, brokerage, taxes, insurance...

someone wants my wrx seats so that's the only reason why i'm thinking about this, but money is tight because i've committed to my 6spd project

i personally like the 02/03 wrx seats over the 04's and the STI 04 seats... Looks wise.. OF COURSE STI seats.. but comfort and bolster support.. 03 is better.. cushy and supportive.

Benjamin Tang, you are a big guy.. those seats might do okay for you.

I had a chance to sit in KGB's STi seats.

I have to say the '02/'03 is by far superior for my ass. If I'm another 30lbs heavier, then the verdict is the other way around.

At the price STi seats are going for though, you might as well get the Recaro SRDs. By far the best street seat I've been in.
