Default Corbeau Forza seats.

Does anyone have any experience with the Corbeau Forza Seats?

I wanted to pick up a pair of them. I kinda realized it was silly to buy a reclinable seat if you can barely recline the stock seats. The Forza seems like a good buy?



I would like to get the black ones tho

I like mine alot, but unfortunately the wear patch on the drivers side did just that.... it's all ripped from me getting in and out, looks like ****

That wear patch problem is a common accurance with those corbeaus when i was researching seats. Everyone says that patch wears out fast.

Looks pretty nice in the car



Yea I figured the seats would wear out there, if you think about it its not like you plop down you kind of need a 'hand' in.

I have the Clubmans, I like them a lot. The wings would be a little uncomfortable for me and I barely fit in the Clubmans, but that's a feature .

I also got the Corbeau brackets for Miata, which I had to modify to fit... i.e. Grind, test, grind, test, grind, test. I also got a snap-off steering wheel system because the extra bolstering on the sport seats make getting in and out a huge ordeal. Come to find, a smaller diameter steering wheel did the trick but having the snap off makes it that much more secure for me.... even though the car is garaged.

Nothing a folded up dish towel can't prevent. Just remove the towel before any hot dates.

Personally i make sure i take a towel with me on hot dates for other reasons. Beats the hell out of wiping off on your seats.

I like the momo starts and he sparco speeds, they're all in the same class it seems. Savington seems to really like his momo starts.

i have a pair of forza seats. i like them, they work for me, and the price was right. however, i must say i would probably look into something a bit more narrower if i were to do it again. excessive width causes too much rubbing on door panel.

Has anyone sat in all 3 (speed, start and forza)? Which would be the most comfortable for long distance driving.

the wings hit the door sill, so if you're tall they don't go all the way back

I just installed a pair in a Friends NB. Make sure you have a BFH present if you are using a stock seatbelt setup, the brackets make it a pain in the ***.
