Seats

Since somehow the GTA seats in my trans am are missing i wanted to know what you guys think of this seat. I have a set of these 04 Subaru STI recaro seats. I will get them recovered in red though.

Re: Seats

I've always liked the look of those. Make sure you get the right seat tracks so they'll fit

Re: Seats

.....Thinking red with black. But then again that might not look right. Maybe all red with gold GTA emblem sewed in where it says STI

Re: Seats

I like my GTA seats myself. Those Lumbar controls are the best. Makes me not even want to drive the daily driver. Plus the GTA get's noticed. I say stay with originals.

Re: Seats

Looks like the seats need new upholstery fabric and a good cleaning. Little rough looking but those carmine red seats are hard to find. I checked out the seat belts he was selling and they were bad. Just like the one's in my car now.

Re: Seats

Found the seat upholstery at this web site. http://www.billstopshop.us/shopping_directory.html
It is either U402-KS83S or U402-KS83. One is for the split back rear seats and the other one is for solid rear seats. Very reasonable prices on the seat upholstery. I have checked hawks and a couple of others and Bill's is way cheaper.

Re: Seats

I didn't want to see those seats at the beginning of the thread in that GTA. Would have made me want to Hopefully the lumbar controls and bladders are still working yet on those seats, that the guy is trying to sell. I really like those seats on a long trip.

Re: Seats

The 4th gen seats are nice as well. I don't know if you could get power lumbar on both seats on a 4th gen. Driver and Passenger? or just Driver? My GTA has Lumbar on both sides.
