Which seats?

Okay...I bought these seats a while back to put in my Supra....which I did with some modification to the sliders.



Now, I'm pulling and re-wrapping the seats that were int he car but I'm not too happy with the seat skins fit...too wrinkly and the cuts seem a bit off...but they're from a reputable company (they were bought through one of rennlist's sponsors or something) so I know it's probably just something I'm doing wrong. However, the recaro knock-offs about fit the porsche. The stock sliders on the porsche actually bolt to them. So, should I just rewrap the stock seats or toss in the recaros?

I like the aftermarket seats. Im not a big fan of the stock P-car seats. Always felt they didnt give good support and the back rest is to flat. forces you to hunch over a bit.
I put a set of OMPs in my last 944

I think I may stick with the stock seats unless I can find something that is a bit more user friendly than those seats...they're hard to adjust...
after some nit-pickig I got the skins on the stock seats to fit semi-propperly, but they still look funny. They were obviously cut bout 2" too wide.

I like my stock seats...I sit all the way back in them and they are quite comfy. That comes from me driving a ford taurus for almost 8 months, and using my feet to keep me from movin around in the car. I think the 944 has some of the biggest side bolsters on any factory car Ive seen (even bigger than the Type R). I happen to fit into them perfectly, and I dont move one bit..

E36 BMW Vader seats are much more aggressive...and very comfortable. Recaro makes them, as well...

I got both seats re-wrapped...I think I'm gonna work with it for a litle while and see if the wrinkles and stuff pull out. If not then I'll switch...even though trading a recaro for a recaro knock-off seems odd...

I got them re-wrapped. and done...the seating surfaces were cut MUCH too wide for the seats, though, and fitment was kinna skewed but you can't expect a perfect product unless it was made specifically for the seat. They look better than I thought they would...not as good as I wanted them too...but infitely better than what was there before. I'll post a pic soon...


...contemplates if the recaro M3 vaders would fit the porsche...
