    Saw them at the parts house tonight, but they were a good 15 feet in the air. They looked really sporty and like they would give you all kinds of support laterally. They had a couple different versions. All cloth, vinyl and cloth, and all vinyl. They ranged from $169 to $239. Not too bad I guess. Unfortunately I couldn't sit in them though. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I saw them at Pep Boys. Maybe your local store has them a little lower than mine? Sorry I could help any more than that.

    no offense taken.. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    i have to admit they do look a bit ricerish (if that's even a word /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif) to me and that's why i tried to stay away from the colored seats. but it'll work. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    You seat's look very similar to mine. I bought these http://www.streetimports.com/product_details.asp?id=373 and they sold them to me for 249 per set. I bought a couple of sets and shipping was about 75 extra per set. I am going to run five of these seats (room for the three kids). Two up front, one in the middle just behind the front seats and then two in the back. I only have the fronts in for now, the only thing I don't like so far is that when buckled in I can't reach the ingition key, radio, heater, parking brake. I have to undo the shoulder harnes to reach.
