OK, I have only just got this seat after chasing it for almost 18 months, but the stupid reality is that I stripped the tan interior out of my car over christmas, so this doesn't fit with my car any more!! I was intending to save this for the Wataru project but after a bit of hard thinking over the last few weeks I'm selling a lot of the pieces I had saved up for it.

So this seat is made by NAR Racing, and is made in Tan leather, specifically to compliment the tan leather you'l find in the Mk1 MX5 / Miatas. Mine was a BRG one, but it will fit with all of the tan interiors up to 97/98 and possibly more.

The seat is a fibreglass shell, and is a nice, slim bucket seat with 5 harness holes. It is generally in immaculate condition with just a bit of the leather loose around the top harness holes at the back (not usually visible). It comes with a custom set of runners that put the seat about as close to the ground as possible. The seat with the runners is just under 12kg in total. The runners fit in Mk1 cars, not sure if it would go in Mk2?

This is it when I fiirst unwrapped it on tuesday



and here it is test fitted in the Mazdaspeed last night




I'm based in the UK, but am happy to ship it anywhere in the world as I know its not the sort of thing that will come up too frequently... and will only have a small market.

I'm after $500 for the seat with the runners, plus shipping to wherever is needed... I am trying to get quotes but it might take a day or two to find who will do this cheapest... I'll keep updating this post with the best I can find, or I'm more than happy to have you arrange it if you can find cheaper!
It would be 12kg and 90cm x 70cm x 55cm once packed.

US - $490 (interparcel)
Central Europe - $150 (interparcel)

Out of curiosity since I cant find it online anywhere, this seat is discontinued, correct?

Lovely seat, wish they were available in black. I'd be all over them.

As far as I'm aware yes, I certainly can't find anything about them anywhere and believe me I've been looking!

Few people interested, but this is still up for grabs. Just been looking into getting this recovered in Black... probably not worth it for all the hassle, and it looks a lot cooler in tan anyway, but at least I'd get to keep it!!

Cheers, I kind of don't want to part with these but storing a seat is difficult and I don't really have a reason to hold on to it any more... I've been basing the entire Wataru interior around this seat and I've only just clicked that its holding the design back, so time to let this seat find a new home...

I love these seats very much! I mean VERY much! They would go perfectly with the interior of my M edition. Unfortunately a bit out of my budget for the next couple of months considering I've spent a ton on my S/C, Rollbar, Wilwood bbk etc etc in the last 3 months.. Frustrating!

I know, my car is a BRG but its been stripped now ready for the cage... the pics were taken in my grey car because its what was in the garage at the time and its -12 outside where the BRG car is!!! I'm seriously tempted to make some custom sliders to keep this as a road seat for whenever the car is in street mode... kind of hope it doesn't sell, then at least I can tell the wife "oh well, I tried... guess I'll have to use it"

Last bump or I may as well keep it... already lined up a passenger seat in Tan, and managed to find a set of diamond quilted tan leather door cards... this could end up costing me money, not gaining me some!!
