Was wondering if anyone on the forum installed these seats in their VT, i'm starting to get more involved in autox and it would be great to be bolstered into the seat more than the OEM seats can offer.

- How difficult was the installation?
- Aside from the adjustable sliding brackets, what other parts would I need to fit this in?
- How's is your experience using them?
- Will I lose my airbag sensors if I change out the seats?

they are decent entry level seats. adjustable back is great for autocross but not recommended for track driving as they will flex more than you think.

if you decide to do track driving, most clubs require a harness/bar of some sort with a seat change. This is what i'm planning on putting in my 02 Si next year, paired with an autopower bar and harness/hans.

- How difficult was the installation? (installation isn't that hard just time consuming)
- Aside from the adjustable sliding brackets, what other parts would I need to fit this in? you will need custom seat mount brackets which we are adding to the site
- How's is your experience using them? haven't personally used them but heard there pretty nice and comfortable overall
- Will I lose my airbag sensors if I change out the seats? yes you will need to loop the seat air bag using a resistor they sell on ebay its like 10 dollars
Hope this helps you

just remember to make sure that you dont have an airbag light on, that would mean your entire system has been turned off.
Yeah 2.2 ohm resistor or was it 2.4? Either way they cost pennies to purchase.. If you order online most places make you order in bulk.. Maybe a local electronics shop will have them and you can get one for like 10-20cents. There are a few videos on Youtube to show you how this can be done.. Super easy
