they look great and their color selection is bigger than any company i've seen, but the price worries me. That seems awfully cheap even for an unknown company.

in all honesty, is it really necessary to buy the superhigh dollar seats? they both hold ya better than the stockies, right? so the cheap ones might get a tear in their stitching a year before the uber costly ones. big deal! sew it back together. problem solved. imo, big name seats (sparco, recaro, bride, etc.) are making money off of their big name.

btw, after checkin em out, even im interested, and i dont really have a need for them! lol

Ummm.... the reason why some seats are "high dollar" is because lot more research goes into the seat. Not to mention overall product quality, longevity, etc.

Do these BOMZ seats pass FIA qualifications standards? I would be weary of putting myself in a seat that promotes agressive driving but was designed to only look and "feel" nice.

Bomz created the ebay intake. haha. i got their intake. cheap stuff so you probably expect a cheap seat. remember, you get what you paid for.

Oh yeah totally overlooked the weight.

Want a light seat?
Check out the NRG Innovations carbon seats. They're not passed FIA approval yet, but should be soon. They weigh in at 13lbs per seat. 2 seats combined won't even weigh more than one of the Bomz....

If you search around, lots of car clubs are offering GBs on these.
