Talking New seat

I finally got a new seat to replace the stock sport seat that was slowly dieing. It's a MOMO Start seat with a fiberglass shell. 5 point harness should be in by next month

I got a deal on it from a friend, retail on the seat and brackets would of been $450+ and I paid less than that The only thing that had to be tweaked was the new floor bracket, the holes were a little off but other than that its an easy bolt in with all the right brackets. My only complaint is that it sits a little higher than the stock seat but with the right tools and some time I can modify some of the brackets and get it lower.

It wasn't hard to modify the bracket, the feet just had to be spread out a little more so the holes would line up. I use the stock seat belt for now and it works ok, it touches my lap, it just doesn't fit snug on my lap like it should.

What are you going to connect the 5-point harness to? Doesn't look like you have a rear bar so I'm just curious.

1984 318i 5-spd that's not currently registered... project car.

1998 Subaru Legacy Sedan

1996 Nissan Maxima is the girlfriend's car that was glad to meet somebody who knew what "routine maintenance" was.

The two shoulder straps will be bolted down using the two rear bolts that hold the front seat down and on the side of the new seat bracket there are holes to bolt eyelets for the lap belt. Shouldn't be too hard, I have a couple back up ideas if that one doesn't work out.

feeling the seat...

i too just got a bucket seat... and it does wonders on the body, i don't have to hold on to the handle bars, or use the center console as a prop...these seats really hold me in place, it has improved my times on the track dramatically...i was tough at first using it as my daily seat but im so used to it now...the install was easy after i bought the bracket from Dave Turner Motorsports (80 dollars) and i drilled the seat to the bracket and the whole fit perfect...although the brack it is not interchangeable with the passenger side....oh, i can't wait to get the other side, right now i'll leave it as is cuz i use the camera mount when i do canyon or track runs... here are pics of my seats...

night shots after the install


more night shots from passenger side


i hate that side wall when getting in and out of my car (since i am a heavier set guy) but it does wonders when i drive


This seat will fit up to a 44" waist...

That seat is too wide for me. Mine does a max of 34 or 36 inch waste and it is still a little loose on me.
