APC = crap. Recaro = Expensive.

Seat quality is pretty much proportional to price, but you can get decent seats from

BOMZ are not good quality seats, no matter what the ricer tells you. Just get something that's comfortable to you, and is adjustable. You'll want adjustable - trust me.

Don't forget that you'll either have to make brackets for the sliders, or get them from the company that makes your seat so they'll fit your car, which could cost you another $60 to $200.

Check craigslist before you go buying retail, though. You won't get ripped as bad. They're still "hot ticket" items in retail sector.

FWIW - The Sparco "Torino" is a fairly comfortable seat, albeit rather expensive at $700+/pair.

This is a good compromise from SCAT/Procar International...
