Hi everyone ! I want to know if racing seats fit well in a b14 ? I'm looking to buy 2 seats but before I want to be sure they gonna fit. Like not too high or not too large ...
Txk, Yann

most seats would fit, provided you have the correct rails and sliders, if you're not going for the fixed ones. i have a sparco seat with an adapter from Wedge engineering. one thing i noticed is that aftermarket seats tend to place you higher than you normally would be with the oem ones, thus requiring maximum tilt up of the steering column.

Ok ... because me I want to have adjustable sliders to go to the back seats but I don't know where I can get these sliders for 200sx.
Also even if the seats are higher, is this confortable ?

www.corbeau.com

They might be the only supplier of bolt in brackets/sliders for the B14.

They do sit you a bit higher.

Ok cool ... I'll check that for the sliders...

For the high of the seat .... it's "drivable" even if you're higher ? I mean you're still in good position to drive, not to high ?

Hello, Yann
Good luck on your project. I am thinking of some racing / Sparco seats for myself. One thing keeps me from doing it is, the racing seats are usually less comfortable. They're tighter and thus not ideal for long trips. But once again, this is just my own opinion.

IMHO, they put you in a better driving position.
The laid back, "gansta lean" is not the best postition to drive from :fluffy:

you do sit higher but its a better position then the factory seats i find much more comfortable on long trips also
keep in mind that the corbeau brackets have mounting holes for there seats and if you get a different companies you might have to drill some new holes also I had trouble getting corbeau brackets without buying there seats
corbeau tries to prevent retailers from selling there brackets without there seats, so have some info on there seats so they think the bracket is for there stuff

They make some nice seats at a good price.
I would just buy a Corbeau seat along with the bracket/slider.

What am I talking about...I bought two of them. :D

I think I'm gonna wait because I know Corbeau seats are a bit expensive. I'm doing a paintjob and a swap so I think I'll miss funds for the seats :rolleyes:

and a guy on the sr20 forum is trying to make some replacment seat covers for them. i suggested vinyl bolsters with an ultra suede centre to stick to (at first it was full leather, but you slide around on leather making the seats useless for fast driving) and the price is going to be around $150-$250 for both front covers. so if you can find the b13 seats at a junk yard you could recover them in nice covers and the shipping for the covers wouldnt be more than $30....shipping for seats? try $150+ :thumbup:

IMHO, they ain't all that great.
I prefer the cloth NX2000 seats as far as OEM bolt ins go.

really!? i have heard that the nx2000 seats suck. all i know is i love the seats, but my drivers side has some foam missing right where your right sholder is and you can feel the metal bar under it so need to take the cover off and get some new foam.

Well, the cloth NX2000 seats that I had were one of the more comfy OEM Nissan seats I've ever sat in, and I've sat in some pretty nice Nissans.
They are not the most sporty or aggressively bolstered, but they were great for long road trips.

My Corbeau's are very nice. The bolstering is just right.
They were a bit harsh on the trip to and from Cali in 2003 though.
Not the most forgiving after 12 hours of driving.

Ok cool I'll check for these seats ... they will be less expensive the racing seats for sure ... and I just have to put the B14 sliders on the B13 se-r seats and they will fit perfectly right ?
For the NX2000 seats ... yes they are confortable but they don't handle very well in the curbs ...

You must have a hunch back or somthing! Every single NX person that I have talked to hates the NX seats for long or short trips! My SE-R seats are WAY more Comfortable and are alot better at holding you in one position while turning. I have noticed though that some B13 SE-R seats feel different compared to other b13 seats...Im speaking 91-92 since they changed the fabric in 93 or 94 to a softer type fabric. I think Some tend to be soft and dont hold you in, while others tend to be hard and hold you in well (like mine).
