    on a daily driven street car what's the difference between a top of the line seat such as sparco and an ebay racing seat other than the embroidered name at the top....don't they both serve the same purpose to hold you in the seat...is it made with cheap stitch or cheap material or something?

    quality is the only real difference
    the cheap seats fade VERY quickly
    the cheap seats have shitty material that does not wear as well
    the cheap seats have shitty frames that break under stress
    the cheap seats are not anywhere near as comfortable
    the cheap seats use shitty padding that breaks down quickly


    the list goes on and on but im sure you get the idea
    now im sure you have or will see plenty of people claiming that their cheap seats are the greatest thing on the planet... but if they truely are the shit why do you not see them in ANY track cars... people who track their cars are generally pretty serious about quality and safety... and for something as important to your safety as the seat that holds you in the car... why would anyone want to skimp on the quality???

    DAD seats are probably in the middle of name brand and APC quality.
