    So the seats in my 92 hatch are finally giving out...seat frame is bent and covers are starting to tear. Anyways...Ive been looking for some new seats and would like to know if you guys can recomend some descent seats...I'm wary of buying the so called "racing seats" on ebay but I dont have truckloads of money to be buying "JDM" seats either. I hope you guys can help me on this as I'm looking to buy seats as soon as I can. Thanks a lot.

    Also I think I remember someone writing there was a seat swap guide on here but I cant seem to find it.

    recaro, bride, corbeau, sparco and buddy club all make good seats.

    Id avoid APC, Lite-Glo, Matrix...maybe a few others, but those 3 stick out.

    Buy my Corbeau TRS seats. I'll sell them to you for $600 shipped, including the $170 of custom brackets that will let them bolt straight into your car with no cutting/welding or funny stuff. I have the grey ones.

    Seriously? That's a low price too. $550 if you come and get them. I'll hold onto them for you.

    Don't worry about me holding them- I haven't listed them anywhere yet, so there's no rush- yet. ;)

    i know your issue on 92-95 seats, they just suck, but if you can score some tweed ex coupe seats they acctually are built tougher, i'm on my third set, and the other two were from dx's, but the set i recived from the ex, were awesome, i really like a stock look, but the only seats i will consider replacing it is Corbeau TRS seats, but i need the extra wide and the back support, when it comes time it will run me close to $1000, so the nicer EX seats are just great for now, plus they feel a bit stiffer than the DX seats. but hey, if you have the money, buy Calesta's seats, thats a smokin deal!!!

    How big are you? The normal TRS will fit some pretty large people...

    Well I'm 6' and have a 36" waist. I know the website says they will fit up to 36". Does that mean they will barely fit?

    Nope, it just means it might be a tad snug, but not in reality. My old roommate has a 38" waist and still had room to spare in the regular TRS.
