I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on a seat make because since the car is my daily driver, I want to make sure it'll be comfortable and maybe reclinable. I have been trying to search the web but couldn't really find anything and was wondering if maybe I was just missing something? Thanks
I daily drive my Z and these seat are pretty comfortable. The seats, brackets and harnesses cost me about $1000. I recommend that you try out the seats before you purchase them. I sat in a lot of seats before I figured out the FX1's had the right fit for me.
i have bride cugas. very comfy and reclining. other comfortable seats i've sat in that might interest you:
Sparco Milano Prestige
Sparco Torino 2
Bride Ergo 2
Recaro Pole Position (FIA approved and non-reclining).
Here is a pic of the Veilside VSD-1 reclineables in my Z, sorry the photo sucks but should give you an idea.
As for fittment:
They are small, dude.... Threads in the past have said 36" MAX, but im a 32" waist and barely fit in these things. They hold you VERY well, though. The design is well thought out, with the padding extruding out from the seat so you have room for your helmet, and the torso support is money.
Height: I am 6-2 and with the Bride RO type rails, i fit perfectly height wise in the Veilside's. Enough room for a helmet if I want buts it's close.
As for comfort:
They are pretty damn comfortable for a racing seat (NOT FIA approved, as Terrasmak mentioned no reclineable is FIA). I have a friend that has the Bride, Japan special edition Kevlar Gia's, he thinks the Veilsides are WAY more comfortable, as do I. The Brides offer more waist, bolster, and torso room width wise, but much less padding. Also, the padding can be removed in the Veilsides (velcro).
Give me a call if you wanna discuss seats, we sell all the major brands and I can tell you what will fit you (size wise) as well as what will fit your budget and needs. We deal with Sparco, Recaro, Corbeau, Status and other smaller companies as well.
