Wheels look great, I've considered ordering the bronze for my black NB. Where did you order them?

Looks awesome.

Do the seats restrict travel/headroom?

The good news is that you won't have to change your sig pic when you sell it

How do you like them seats? I'm surprised how well they fit, I was thinking they were going to be a bit snug or is it just the camera angle?

Thanks everyone.

The seats are from a local place. You can probably find them online somewhere too though.

They are very snug. Basically if I was any taller than I am I wouldn't fit. They were also a huge PITA to make fit. Fabricated my own rails/mounts which took forever and a half.

Straighten the steering wheel before you take interior pics.

For anyone looking for the seats, they look to be these:

2x JDM BLACK CLOTH RECLINABLE DUAL SLIDERS SPORT RACING BUCKET SEATS SET | eBay

18psi - Can you give any insight on how well they fit in the car? You mentioned you couldn't be any taller or they wouldn't fit, so about how tall/big are you?

Because of you're size, can you still recline in them? Do they rub the door cards?

Thanks!

Thanks. Definitely planning to hold on to this one longer than the last one
Definitely missed it about a week or two after getting rid of it.

I am 5'9 and their biggest problem is not being able to slide back nearly as much as fixed back buckets and stockers. My feet are pretty short, and are RIGHT on the pedals when sitting inside, any closer and I'd be screwed. The way they are in the pics are the maximum they will slide back. Period.

Also I cannot stress enough how much of a PAIN it was making the rails/sliders/seats come together correctly on the bottom. Took us something like 9 hours trying different approaches and messing with them to get everything to work.

Otherwise they look great, feel very VERY supportive, and I like em. Definitely a big improvement over stock, without a doubt.

That's pretty much it.


Also, MOAR:

Need to get the other halfs subie shot, just clay bared and waxed it. I'm very tempted to drive it back up there and have you flash it. Car looks ------- clean, can't wait to get mine painted

These are my everyday tire and are just about done after ~25000km. No traction but cheap, comfy and quiet.

I love those seats, they fit in with the interior VERY well.

Subie is looking nice as well, I'm still looking for a 4 door truck replacement and an FXT is high on the list.

Not really. And yes they're all seasons: Falken Ziex 912 or something. Had a lengthy convo on another forum and decided to go with em because not racecar and will be driven year round.
Big thing for me is softness and quietness which these seem to excel at, and provide somewhat decent traction.

Downside is of course they're no RS3 and most report them wearing down faster than advertised.

I'll *** wid em and ditch em if I don't like em.

You like it soft and quiet, I like it harsh and wide.

Spinning wheels in 4th will be cool, I guess.
