they no have green..... It's so hard to find green products these days... You can have lots of green lights. But nobody wants to make interior products that are green...


By the way Detriot Raver you got any more pics of your ride. I like what you have done so far. Props from the Speedy man..

Yeah I have a silver car and have blue everywhere. Right now i have blue and black seat covers from advance auto on. I have a Blue undercar kit too. Wish i had a pic to show y'all but something is wrong with it, plus i need to put on my new front tube since i broke the other one and had to bypass it for a little while. <_<

IMO..

I HATE racng seats with a passion.. Maybe because I am too big for them or something.. But it feels like it is tring to squeeze me into a small area where I cant fit!

Thats funny. I personally love that snug feeling, makes me feel more safe, and another reason I want to get them.

Only if you can get the rear seats to match up. Otherwise, no, looks kinda "F&F."

That was something that I have been thinking about. Does anyone know where to get some seat covers for a back seat that would look like those race seats. At least then it would match and not look as bad. thanks for brining it up trueblue. Maybe I will start a new topic on this.

If they made them with grey leather like my current seats, I'd love to have them in my ride. The colored ones with the cheap slip covers look way too rice for me.

SHO seats give you that exact same feeling, ask anyone who has sat in a SHO for a fairly long period of time how confortable they are. Plus, they'll look a hell of a lot better in your car than racing seats.

How is this for you, they are leather:



Unfortunatly, they are very expensive. But like always you can prolly fid them on eBay for alot less money than on sounddomain.

IMO it is somewhere between "OMG RICE" and "LOL OMG RICE". I dunno I just never liked racing seats, I'm with FatTortoise. At 5'11" and 197 lbs. I just don't seem to fit into it. I sat in a factory-riced Mitsubishi, and the seat literally made my arms and legs stick out from my body like a freaking coat rack. And after banging my knee trying to shift gears, I said screw it. So I'm not a huge fan.

I found a rear seat cover that will really go well with the racing seats by cover king. Its neopreme (not sure bout the spelling) and is supposed to be a custom fit.

Oh man, dont remind me, the seats in my old car(95 SE) were a gift from God. Besides sitting in some seats from Lexus and Infiniti cars, I definitly think those sho seats are the best.
