Default 2x Bride Vios Low Max replicas, unused w/ brackets local pickup in Northern Virginia

I purchased a set of these last summer for my STi, and love them. So during my miata's winter rebuild I purchased a second set. The miata project has gone from hardcore/speed to slow and retro, and I'd like to get some vintage style seats, so these are up for sale. They have never been sat in. Pics are from same seller I bought from, my seats are still in the box/bubble wrap, but what you see is what you get, minus the brackets/sliders you see, which are crap, and they charge $50 extra for. I came up with a better solution which I explain below, with pics. You will get those brackets, at no extra charge

Seats cost me $400 shipped, you can have them for $300, firm, but pickup only - size of the box means shipping would kill the deal. repeat, I will not ship these, please do not ask.

I welded up brackets that bolt to unmodified stock miata sliders to use with these seats - the sliders/brackets offered with the replicas for extra $ suck, and were the only thing I was unhappy with from my STi set. My brackets allow full seat travel, and keep the seat nice and low. I covered the brackets in synthetic leather, so they look nice.



only shows two brackets, but you get all four. The leather has slits for the bolt holes, and there are three vertical bolt holes at the flange of each bracket, so you can fine tune the seat height and angle to your liking.


I know replicas are always a touchy subject, please let's keep the discussion away from that topic in this thread. I will say that I've owned several authentic high end seats, sparcos and recaros, and these feel and look as high quality as any I have had, and are more comfortable. I daily drive my STi with the other set, happily. Seats are light, 13lbs on my bathroom scale.

I am a 32 waist and I have room. I've never been a 36 waist, but I think that sounds about right. Prior to these, I had sparco roadsters, and they fit like gloves, had I been any bigger than 5'10 130 I don't think I would have fit in the sparcos.

Do the seats have an anti-sub belt hole?

all I know is it sits lower, because the basin your butt is in actually sits in between the stock sliders. they are not installed in the car and without doing so I have no way to measure. that's just from memory

^^ hmmm, didnt see that, and still dont for some reason, oh well.

If you were closer, I would be on this in a heartbeat!

Ok, cool. It just looked like the brackets made it very high, but I have nothing to reference it to is all.

thee seats are side mount, so while my brackets sit on the oem sliders, the seats sink down into the assembly, rather than sit on top of it

It is straight up 95 to exit 152B in VA, to Route 28 North and you will be there. Depending if I could fit the 2 seats in my car, I might be willing to deliver them.

****! I work at Ridgetop Circle in Sterling. It's like 2 minutes from Dulles Town Center.
I'll buy those if the previous buyers fall through (and if my *** fits and they are comfortable).

I mean, I need to figure out of I can fit 2 race seats in my passenger seat on top of the other race seat that is in there now with the top up. Lets see if the other locals get them first. You know how to get in contact with me if you are going to get them.
