Default Blue seats in a Mariner Blue Miata

What do you guys think. I can get a really good deal on a prototype Corbeau LG1 seat. Its a one of a kind blue cloth.




Will this look racy in a mariner blue car? I can get them for 50% off the retail price brand new.

I really dont want the car to look like racy and totally retarded.

BTW, do LG1 even fit in miatas?

FWIW, I think colored race seats in anything other than black look like rice in something other than a dedicated gutted track car. Black is fine in a street car as it isn't so obvious.

Thats what i was thinking. Just need someone to tell me it a few times. I want a matching pair of racing seats and these would cost both new as much one cost new. Good deal, good seat, BAD color.

They're called "tuner" seats for a reason. That reason is "rice seats" is a little racist. If you want racing seats, those ain't dem.

I call seats like that racy (meaning race, as in wanting to race someone on the street).

I want seats that are comfortable and still old well at autox events. And i dont want to spend a grand on a recaro or sparco. So Corbeau are good all around sporty seat. But not in blue.

I found an awesome deal on red seats but I couldn't live with matching my exterior with the seats so I bought black seats for more $
