They should match the paint or contrast.

meh its ricey to me but if you could find a way to tone it down alil it would be pretty neat. The main thing i look for when doing **** like that in a car is subtelty man, to me the double take is better than the gawking stare.

Leave the stockers in. If you aren't putting a fixed back racing bucket in then there is no need change out the stock seats.

Stock seats have zero bolster support.
I autox and plan on some track days as well. So stock seats with used up fome, stains and holes are out of the question. It's really between another a4 seat and these.

they are pretty much as tall as the a4 seats. So about an inch higher that stock. Not great but it's ok. I am abou 5/10-5/11 so I am fine.

I tried fixed back seats and they suck ***. I had corbeau fx pro and they were very flimsey. I think fixed back seats need to be carbon fiber or full metal construction.

Don't care for the blue but I think the blue seat would look better on the drivers side with the door shut,taking the pic like that just exposes to much blue. I find most FB seats need a back brace to be stiff.

so mounted the seat on the brackets today and a huge fail.


Just when i started to like them. They are so comfortable and sit lover than my A4, so visibility is much better.





does handle #27 fit on cars with handle #28?



This will pretty much be a deal breaker. Because aside from that i like the seats now.

The bolts don't seem to line up. You may need the door panels also.

Well, after all this debate i am not getting these seats. After i mounted them on the brackets the seat totally does not fit. Its about an inch too wide at the base. So i guess I am going to be sticking with A4s.

I did not listen to a lot of people and decided to just get the damn seats. I just could not pass up an amazing deal on these seats. One of a kind prototype Corbeau lg1 seats for 50% off the price.

And there is no way in hell you can fit regular LG1 in your miata

I know! I think they will fade pretty quickly and the shoulder belt will stain the bolster. So i have plans to later recover them in some synthetic leather and suede. In black that is.

So is this specific seat not available in black? They turned out really nice!

I hate how the passenger area is wider than the driver's side.

Lg1s are available in black but they are much wider usually. These are prototype seats that have never made it to the public.

here are regular lg1s Corbeau: LG1



Notice how much smaller the bolsters are!

They dont fit in a miata. They are about an 1"-2" to wide.
