I've seen them before on some miatas. I'm sure they will fit but it might be a little tight. Wouldnt you rather go with momo or sparco?.

Brian, if you want, I could make you some brackets so you could use the stock sliders. I've installed many seats for myself and friends. just bring it by and I will hook you up. If you go with my install, get bottom mount seats.

Thanks for looking out! 8)

Are there any bottom-mount seats that you would recommend for a fair price? I'd need a wide seat, btw. 5'10" 175lbs doesn't seem to fit into the regular ones. #-o

I seem to recall the wider version does actually fit in a Miata. I found the seat to be comfy, but a very tight squeeze even for my 32" waisted butt.

You could get a Momo Start, which I found to be a better fit, for less than $300 new ;)

How is that quality of that seat? I don't see too many people running Momo seats... #-o

quality of the seat is great. I have one with MemoryFab low position seat sliders and they sit a little lower than stock. If you're concerned about not fitting, they do offer a larger size like everyone else said.

Alright, thanks guys. I don't need anything top of the line, so whatever works is great. If I did pick a color I'd definitely pick black. I'm pretty broke at the moment so I'll get back to you, Fred. :D

The seat's fine. It's a seat that actual track drivers use (not an appearance oriented seat). FIA rated, etc.

If you don't see too many people running it, I'd have to ask where you're looking. It's not really a street seat (but way more comfy than my Axis seat).

The BEST thing for you seat-shoppers is too actually put your asses in a seat, then decide. Everybody has a different definition of what fits "right".

MOMO seats are overpriced. The MOMO Start to me is uncomfortable, heck, I've sat in Ultrashields that are more comfy.

To me. the best bang-for-buck seats on the market are Cobra seats. They are confy as heck and priced just right. There "entry level" race seat, the Cobra Monaco, is miles ahead of MOMO and Sparco in construction AND confort and only $269. And their Cobra Imola ($500) is the best kevlar-shelled race seat for under $1000.

100% truth.

I hated the corbeau that everyone suggested for comfort, and loved the ultrashield that everyone told me was terrible for comfort.

I agree. Different strokes for different folks!

I agree that the Imola is a LOT better than the Start. I named the Start because I actually find it to be comfy and it's closer to the OP's price range than the Imola. I've never sat in the Monaco, so I couldn't recommend it.
