Default Bucket seats with door bars

Does anyone know what bucket seat (preferably FIA homologated) will fit with Boss Frog door bars? It looks like Sparco Sprint might fit...

Edit: specifically looking for a seat which accepts 5/6 point harness.

I know my door bars are not the same size as yours but this may be helpful. The Bride VIOS III fits very well in the Miata with door bars due to it's dimensions. I recently upgraded to the used Cobra Suzuka, however, it BARELY fits. I have to really squeeze the seat in the slot and it is not ideal. Another seat that looks like it should fit is the Recaro Profi SPG.

I've managed to squeeze in an eBay Bride Zeta III in there, but I had to trim quite a bit of fiberglass from the seat. I'll take some pictures later today.

I really like the quality of the seat, especially considering mine is almost 8 years old. However, if I did it again with more budget I'd get a cobra racer v or recaro spg which fits like a glove. I understand that's not an option for everyone due to their body type. For reference I'm 5' 9" 155 so I can squeeze into smaller seats.
