    I was searching vtec.net today, and saw this article...

    JDM mini van

    If anyone has ever driven the odyssey, they will know that the seats suck. There so flat and don't hug you at all. The JDM mini van gets Recaro's? WTF?

    Nick, my parents used to own one. The stock USDM seats blow.

    But I think the Recaros are just an option, if I could read Japanese, I'd be able to tell ya.

    The Odyssee seats don't have shit on EG DX seats, trust me.

    Insight seats are comfy, lightweight and solid. I wouldn't doubt Recaro had their hands in them,

    But European seats are usually rock hard. The Insight looks like the upholstery was all Honda.

    If they don't say Recaro, they aren't. There was a big todo on H-T about this, people kept saying the 89-91 CRX Si seats were Recaros, and Honda and Recaro both said (I called and talked to them) that the only seats they made for them for production cars were the Type R's (Civic, Integra, Accord)

    If this is true, Honda did a damn good job on the Del Sol seats. I can sit for hours in those.

    I find the stock Civic DX seats a bit uncomfortable. Might locate some Del Sol seats...

    I'm saying bro! I could drive 45 min at most before I had to get out and walk around in those seats...

    Cardboard + Staples +Wal Mart quality stuffing = DX Seats.
