well nothings wrong with them, i just wish i would have gone with a seat that came OE in a honda or acura...
How did you bolt them down? You shouldnt bolt them 90 degrees down, they should be straight back (but theres a 15 degree allowance) I have mine bolted to the c pillar...Did mike send you the instructions for the harness?

^^i heard from a friend of mine that its also pretty dangerous to attach it to the c-pillar...the only safe way is to have a roll cage and have it attched to the bar going straight across, right behind the front seats...

Hmm...in the Sparco manual for the harnesses i bought, it says if there isnt a roll bar/cage to bolt them to, the last place that is exceptable is the c-pillar. your supposed to make it directly behind the seat as possible. But in the manual they also said that its dangerous to bolt it straight down(ex. to the front seats rear bolts)....
I dont use mine during DailyDriving though, i still have the OE belts in because i was told sparco harnesses arent street lega(although they are made by schroth,and schroth is legal?)...

On topic....the seats really do look hot, you should get some more black interior to accent the seats

Those would look swell in my interior. =P

Forgot how much they set you back but I recall it being a somewhat killer price?

Looks great. I have a Sparco Evo2 waiting to go in but I have clearance issues with the base bracket. Stupid side mounts...

yeah having the harness bolted straight down is a really bad idea if you get in a crash when you pull forward it will compress your spine that could result in serious injury.
