Yeah, one of the guys local to me has done it.

I think he posted about it on m.net
( he's either 200bhpmx5 or 200bhp I'm not quite sure which )

I've heard lots of people talk about doing it but I haven't yet seen pics for myself. 200bhpMX5 said he installed Elise seats in his NA but I don't know which Elise seats. He lives in England so I would guess used S1 or S2 Elise seats can be found for less money over there than in the USA. The original S2 Elise seats aren't all that great for me in terms of fit (me = too wide), comfort, and lateral and lumbar support. The Probax seats are better but still not ideal for me.

I wish there were more thinline seats available. These days all you see is those massive ones with wide shoulder supports that are useless as:

A: They dont fit Miatas without looking like they have been squeezed in, and
B: They look crap anyway!

same here. I wouldn't mind having a deep racing bucket except for the whole seatbelt not touching my lap part.

There is that one other Recaro I have seen pics of but those seem to go for about $800 and up EACH where as I have seen in an Elise Classified section a pair of seats for $1000

Braille Oxygen seats (made for them by Recaro) only $900 each + $200 for brackets.

:lol:

"NAME: Just as Oxygen is essential for human life, the O2 is essential to the driver concerned with performance and handling of his vehicle. The Oxygen is the lightest seat in the World designed for daily use! At 16 pounds the Oxygen gets its name from the weight of the seat 16 - which is also the atomic number of the element Oxygen.

COMFORT & SIZE: While most sport and racing seats compromise comfort, the Braille O2 offers increased hip and leg room without sacrificing comfort simply because it is 25mm wider than the average fixed back seat and comes standard with additional, thicker padding and ergonomic memory foam. This gives the performance enthusiast that extra comfort he desires for daily driving, long distances, and race use. No longer does the performance enthusiast need to have a waist the size of a runway model to sit comfortably in a fixed back seat. In fact, Braille considered the average enthusiast when testing several of the leading lightweight seats on the market and made it a requirement that the seat be comfortable for the driver that might sit in the seat with a wallet in his back pocket.

DRIVER HEALTH: This very seat is a winner of the prestigous AGR award of excellence - The coveted AGR Seal of approval is only awarded to top-ergonomic products tested by an independent commission of scientific and medical experts on basis of many ergonomic criteria. The Oxygen is manufactured by the only company to meet these stringent test demands.

A team of engineers worked alongside doctors, physical therapists, and material specialists to design a seat that not only supports the human spine, but also relaxes the muscular system of the human body, which allows a driver to concentrate more on driving than on his comfort level."
