I'm in search for seats that will work with my mazdaspeed NRA rollcage.

I have noticed there are alot of scattered "does anyone have this or that seat"

So, why not create a seat thread?

Give us all the info, ie.

What seat(s) i have/had:
What rails i have/had:
What build it fits:
Price:
and a picture.

I'll start

What seat(s) i have/had: 2 sparco sprints, mazdaspeed, Stock presently.
What rails i had: Sparcos went on stock rails, mazdaspeed had bride rails.
What build it fits: sprint - bigger build, i'm 185cm and 90kg, fit snug, mazdaspeed, smaller build, i barely fit in the thing.
Price: Sprints can be had at $250 AUD, mazdaspeed i got for $400 AUD with rails.

I see you put the smaller seat as the passenger seat so you can politely decline all the fatty boom-booms. smart man.

Haigog where'd you get your seats? I saw a clamshell hinge install on an Elise and when I saw the seats I couldn't believe how thin they were! I then googled/ebay'd for them and couldn't find squat... Do you have to just get lucky?

What seat(s) i have/had: Recaro SPG, Bride Zeta III, Bride Gias
What rails i have/had: Bride Rails, Recaro Rails
What build it fits: SPG and Zeta III hits the door panel. The Zeta III really badly. Even with the door panel off it still touches a bit. Both Bride and Recaro rails sit way too high.

search some recent threads... I posted a link to a Japanese site with detailed pics of how the Gias fits in an NB.

Check the elise seats thread... they pop up on elisetalk.com all the time. Elise guys upgrade to Exige seats or racing buckets and sell them off. They're the ideal Miata street seat... they're just a pain to mount...

I have done a search, the cage in the red nb is almost (if not the same) as mine, however mine has a harness mount on the middle points, whereas his is on the seat belt tower.

I'd still prefer a fixed bucket though.
