Been looking for a set of sports seats to replace the originals in my 1600-2.

Want to use the car for hill-climbs and club events down under.

Have been looking into ebay for the seats, and see a large number of 'no name' racing seats advertised. IM looking for something that is reclinable and on rails, plus able to fold forward for rear access.

Is a seat a seat?? Or is there a big advantage to stayng with name brands such as SAAS , Recaro etc... the prices for the no names are certainly much lower than for those with names..

thanks from an aussie 02 lover
