Are those produced up to any kind of safety standard?

Can he get a fixed back FIA approved seat? Something like the momo starts or sparco sprint. Including anti-sub holes.

corbeau forzas are around $200 shipped, less than $300 with rails
no point for reclinable seats in a miata

Try different fixed seats. The momo start is really confortable for me, the sparco ..ugh i forget.. not so much. Where as some of my friends think the start is horribly unconfortable.

They were really entry level Simpsons cause I didn't have much of a budget for safety left after the rest of the car..

What kind of cost are we talking about for the momo or sparcos?

My friend had a set of Tenzo R seats. They were HUGE. I contemplated taking them out of his car and putting them in mine while his car is down, until I looked at them again and realized that they would not fit. They hit the doors in his eclipse.. And thats a boat compared to a Miata. Don't remember what model seat, I think rally or something. Oh and the quality was horrible, the dye fades within a year or two, the plastic guides for the harness simply break apart. Sorry to **** on your group buy but I just don't recommend them.. His was not FIA homogulated either.
