    I'm trying to go for a Type-R look for the front seats of an EG Civic. I'm looking to put in Red Recaro's but was wondering which ones to put in. From what year and car would fit for the front seats?

    ITR, CTR, JDM, USDM?
    Which ones?

    the red recaros are from the JDM ITR

    the prices on them is retarded as fuck
    you will pay $800- $1000 or more (ive seen $1700) for a set of used (and trust me most of them look very used) seats

    or you can go and but the identical seats from a recaro dealer for $1000 - $1200 and have brand new un abused seats

    the only difference is the "RECARO" stitching is smaller and below the harness holes on the JDM ITR ones (the regular recaros have the stitching above the holes)

    Holy Shiznits, I think I might go the Bride or Sparco route.

    When all else fails, lower your standards.

    brides will most likely cost more than the recaros
    sparcos will be about the same

    its time to really think about what you want out of a seat and make your decision from there

    are you looking for a purely functional race seat... Kirkey
    are you looking for a low/moderate priced seat with good quality that will give you more support and hold you in while racing... Corbeau
    are you looking for a moderate/high priced seat with good quality that will give you more support and hold you in while racing... Sparco
    are you looking for JDM styling... Recaro
    are you looking for bling factor... Bride
