Default 2 Momo Start seats

Got 2 Momo Start Seats. They are new. Well almost. I drove with one only a day to find out that after 15min of driving they cause me pain in the back: I'm too short for the seat. (BTW I'm 5'3"). I bought them on ebay. And they were packaged in their original box with 2 metal straps around it so I believe that they were new but they are dated from 2002. THey are the ones that are screwed on the bottom. I had a hard time to fit them to the stock rails but I think it would be simplest to make an adaptor for them. They need a little cleaning that's all. The little things on them in the pictures are juste tree buds.





I'm asking 550$ CAN. So with the Canadian $ that falls like a rock in a well, it's good for you. Plus shipping too. But if you are near the canadian eastern border (NY, MASS, MAINE and the like) I can do the trip to bring them to you if you are willing to pay the gas for a Mazda Protegé . I don't know how it would cost for shipping it and I don't have a box to pack them now.

Yeah Ebay is probably my friend but first I'll have to find a box big and strong enough for them. And because of the size it will take, I'm affraid taht the shipping will be pretty expensive... But I can wait, they will past the winter in my bedroom

Seats are the single best mod you can make to the ergonomics of a car.

+1. I'm on my third miata, first was boosted (then totaled) second had it's fiar share of mods, this one is the only one to get a set of seats and even though they're not the nicest seats in the world (procar extremes) they're right there with if not my favorite mod yet on any car.

You have offered these for sale yet cannot tell anyone what you want for shipping. The seats are not not that heavy and shipping should not be very expensive. Hell, I sold and shipped a complete SC kit including intercooler for less that $100 shipping. I also sold a set of shocks/springs this summer (ask 18 PSI how well I packed these). It was a little work packing it up, but really not that big of a deal. Find some boxes, get a **** load of packing material and a little tape. If you want to sell them, let us know what shipping will cost.

You can take the seats into any shipping store and they will hook you up with box/packing materials/tape and then you'll know its packed correctly. That stuff should be $15-20, and shipping $50-60 per seat.

paul if you really wanted them it would be cheaper to borrow my jetta and drive up there. should be able to make it up on a tank of gas NP. made it to syracuse in the miata with the LINK and it took a tank, and that was only 25mpg.

SO!

I have 2 quotes. There was too many people when I came at the purolator office and the guy said to me that it should not vary that much for other states.

Someone asked me to Minnesota ---> 200$
Tallahassee Florida ---> 225$

Like I said this is not a question of weight but of box dimensions. 39"X28"X22"

Anyone still interested?

Not me, I can't believe shipping cannot be had for less.
