Default Aftermarket Seat for BIG Guy?

I have worn through the bolster on the stock seat in my 05 RS. SoA claims it's not their problem and the stealership wants $609 to replace the seat. It's time to explore aftermarket options! I am a BIG guy. I'm 6'1" but only have a 30" inseam, so it's all in my torso (meaning I almost hit the ceiling in the stock seats). I weigh 280lbs and have a 40" waist. Like I said, I'm a BIG guy and the stock seats were kinda tight in the hips. What are my options for aftermarket seats that are wider in the hips/thigh than the stockers and will cost less (tax, title, and out the door) than $609? All the aftermarket seats I've seen so far seem to be targeted at skinny-assed boy racers.

I'll be using the seats 80% for in town commuting, 10% for hauling ass through the twisties, 5% for long trips (to get to the twisties), and 5% for autocross.

Someone out there has got to have a save!
