Default Because i cant make decisions. Yay or Nay?

These are custom made prototype Corbeau LG1. They are super narrow and are covered in tough cloth. I want a another bucket seat in my miata, because i have a single A4 seat right now.

So for another A4 it will be 400 bucks with sliders and mount. And new a4 are all a bit too wide for me. So these would be 600 for two brand new with sliders and mounts.

Just cant get over the blue color.

Yay or Nay.

Please be constructive in your criticism.

At least it matches the car OK. What about a custom cover down the road?

Too much blue but the seats look good though. How high are they?

That would be possible. Corbeau makes replacement covers in many colors but its about $200 each.

I think these dont look horrible if i keep the rest of the car clean. Like no blue shift boot or steering wheel inserts.

They will sit about another 2" higher. I have it sitting just on the floor without the mounts right now.

I guess the cool thing is that they are one of a kind and are super narrow so good for my 31" waste. And lg1s usually dont fit miatas.

I couldn't deal with that much blue, but to each his own. Is it primarily a street/track/or split duty car?

I used to have blue corbeau A4's in my mariner miata, and always though it looked strange. Black would be way better.

My .02. I like it since the car has power to match, I say go for it. If it was a stock 1.6, then it would be rice.

You think so? Yeah i really like how they feel. Perfect for my size. Maybe if i can get them for even less money i will take them. I just want to have good matching seats. Not one stock and one Corbeau.

i think that off blue adds a whole bunch of character. and dont put anymore blue stuff in there, just blacked out with those seats would be my take.

Nay. Ask anyone that has colored seats and they'll say they show wear and dirt really easily. Except for brand new install pictures like the above, I've seen it every time. They also look a little chunky, you know? I like the thin light weight looking design of the stock Miata, Elise, and various other seats.

I also hate fake racing seats, but I'll leave that argument out of this "do they look good" thread.

Rock them if you feel like it and quit worrying about what other people think. Blue on blue like that isn't my cup of tea though.
