The Review You Need to Read
I recently purchased these seats for my 04 Mustang about a month in a half ago. Its a daily driver and used for Road Course and Auto-X driving so I can speak to how these feel on and off the track.
Off the track these are easily comfortable enough to use everyday and I think they would still be comfortable on a long road trip. Also they have plenty of lumbar support and you can lean them back until they hit the back seat which is always nice if you are a passenger on a long trip. I'm 5'11" and 155 pounds and they feel great and I still have a little wiggle room at the top of the seat so they would probably be good up into the 190 pound range. I did have a passenger ride with me who was probably around 240lbs and his only complaint was they hugged his sides a little to much.
On the track these held me in pretty well letting me concentrate on making good lap times rather than having to keep myself from sliding around in the stock seat. They have more cushion than a real race seat but still allow you to feel the road enough that you will still feel like you are in a real racing seat.
I think another big question is what do they weigh compared to stock. If you have the cloth non-powered option seats like myself, expect to actually gain a few pounds but if you are replacing your stock powered leather seats then definitely expect to drop a few pounds after the seat and brackets are installed.
And lastly installing them took about 3 hours of my time but a lot of that time was cleaning the interior real good. Everything bolted up no problem and they looked pretty good in a car that had the grey interior. I think my only complaint would be that the brackets might not be perfect and it makes the seat hard to slide the seat to adjust it.
Overall I'm pretty satisfied with the purchase and would definitely recommend them.
