Ok I have been looking for some racing seats for awhile now.

I really liked the Sparco Sprints and could have got a set for $325 local or $400 plus shipping but I never could come up with the money..

Well I have some money now and I decided to watch ebay for some racing seats..

<HR>

Found these
BRIX ALKANTARA BLUE RECLINABLE (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=006&item=160031855303&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&rd=1)
