    Default Seats for my Dimma ??

    Ok I need new seats in my Dimma 205.
    I have Recaro full leathers in my Megane RS250 and I dont like them.
    I have Recaro cloth in my Sierra RS Cossie, they are quite comfortable considering they are 26 yrs old.
    I dont know which way I'm going but its looking like I will be street / tracking the Dimma, and maybe selling either the Cossie or the Megane.
    So what seats for the Dimma ?
    Sparco Pro 2000 look good but they dont tilt so no good for a street legal car.
    I really am confused.
    I need lots of side/ kidney area support.
    Any suggestions please ?
    Cheers

    Do a thread search for 205 seats and you will see a few conversations on this. I put seats from a 2003 WRX STI in my car as the best mix of sport and comfort. post 181 on this thread explains a bit:

    I had to modify these seats a lot and make new support rails. You really need to replace or strengthen the seat body mounts as they are very weak and your seat has a good chance of ripping out in an accident. There are stacks of photos of such work on 205GTIdrivers.com

    I ended up with a pair of Ford Sierra XR4i seats.
    Look like Recaros, but have support AND comfort !!
    Not easy to find in Australia, though if you ask on the Ford RS forums you may be lucky

    nah its fine just curious to them them in the car, im sure i will find something that suits soon enough, have been keeping my eye out for some subaru seats wrx or rs ones. i had a rs a few years ago and seats in that where comfy with good support. sat in a stratos seat over the weekend and instantly thought i need a pair. turns out they where around $1800 each! very nice though as far as fit and comfort that you would think is not possible from the look of the seat.
