Question Seats, Seats, Seats...Help!

Alright guys...well some of you guys know that I want recaro seats in my car..but now i've changed my direction in the STYLE.

Recaro Seats (types of seats)

Before: I wanted to have recaro's that looked like the ITR's or the recaro sports..
NOW: I want seats that look closer to stock but with a sporty twist...and seats that hold you in better than ours...so I was looking at the Recaro Trend, Style, or Orthoped seats...

What i want to know is whether or not anyone with a 6th gen has pictures of these seats in the car....I want to know if they will look good in my car. One of the top reasons is to take out the heavy seats and the other is to have a grippier fit and style at the same time. Please help guys!

-Martin

hmm...I guess no one ever tried other seats...well if anything...does anyone know other brands that make some pretty good seats...not replicas but other styles other than recaro, bride, sparco, or corbeau?

How about Civic Si seats? S2000 seats? RSX seats?

I don't have any pics, much less in an accord but my friend had some recaro "trends" in leather. Looked really good. He had a tan and black interior with tan seats. They look clean, they feel good. I think they are far better for a DD than the more agressive seats people put in.

Yeah...What I really want is some reliable seats, but they don't have to be like sparco, recaro or those top-end seats that go for 1100-2000...

I have these in my car, more aggressive hold, but not uncomfortable for long drives or being stuck in traffic either.

I was thinking of DC5-R seats, and may get them in the near future, but my Si seats are just too damn comfortable and nice to justify the swap again.

Civic SiR (aka EP3) seats. I just cut-and-pasted my stock brackets, had them cut off my stock brackets, and replaced the EP3 brackets with them. I didn't do it myself, but if you had a grinder and a welding machine, you could easily do it yourself.

No, I tossed my stock seats out dude, took up too much space. My driver's was power, passengers' wasn't.

TRUV6, only pic of them on my car:

You can get an s200 steering wheel or a DC5-R steering wheel also and the airbags should work with very little minor modifications

get the recaro seats out of the integra type r or get the speed seats. IMO both of these options are better than bride or sparco.
