You can use any seats. Mounting brackets, you can use GC, wrx or legacy for any model (not sure about LGT). I suggest you also get sliders. I had GC sparco seats in my old BD with sparco brackets and sliders and when my bro took it over, we put in WRX stock seats. Subarus are pretty much unviersal with each other. Only thing is you can't use GC brackets on WRX, but that's a different story..

Direct swap. Takes half hour. Make sure you use a torque wrench on the mounting bolts. Stock swap, you'll sit higher, aftermarket, you'll sit much lower.

how can they afford to sell a pair of seats for $115?!?!? They must be made of cardboard or something...

that's what i've figured out... even if they get 120$ from shipping (it must cost around a 100$ to ship to Canada), can the seats be respectable quality if they end up costing around 230$USD a pair? because they look awesome

alos if i get racing seats, can i find a way to ues my original safety belts?
