I'm trying to get a new set of seats for my NA, but I want something that offers me a bit more space, won't break the bank, and is daily friendly -comfortable, and has a recline function. Anybody have any experience with Corbeau A4's?

not width-wise. i'd like to find seats that are thinner in terms of the bottom and back. I'd like for some of my taller friends to be able to fit in my car comfortably. Extra legroom and headroom would be nice

i agree the fx1's look good, but i'm not sure i want to daily a non reclining seat. i might just have to find a shop that has some stuff in stock willing to let me try em out, even if it's just a pretend test drive haha

Do a foamectomy and go from there. And I swear if you ask what a foamectomy is before you search for it, I'm strapping you to that bicycle and chasing you with a flame thrower. Then if you still aren't happy, buy a set of Lotus seats.

The Lotus Elise seats look like they might fit the bill if you can find them cheap enough.
You need brackets, but someone was fabbing those a while back.

I can't speak to the foamectomy, but the Lotus seats are great. My wife and I both were both fine on an hour and a half trip in the elise seats with harnesses.
