I literally just bought these last Friday from Steven aka Kung Fu Jesus, who had owned them since 2010, and received yesterday but unfortunately they don't fit me so they must go.
They are Lotus Elise seats w/ Sector 111 harness grommets(shoulder and groin), functional inflatable lumbar supports on Flipside Customs brackets on OEM sliders and the drivers side has had the foam replaced with 1" FIA approved foam and come with extra foam to do the passenger side seat. They are in good shape but one of the head rest did get a small rip in it when being shipped because they were only packed in packing peanuts.
I would have more pics but unfortunately the camera battery was dying so I only have a few comparative pics and some measurements but will get more pics later today. So the measurements:
Lotus Elise seat w/ Flipside brackets on oem sliders-
Inside width(seat itself)-13"
Shoulder width(widest point)-19.5"
Seat bottom length(from the back to the front)-16"
Distance between the top and headrest-4"
OEM '97M seat on oem brackets/sliders-
Inside width(seat itself)-16.5"
Shoulder width(widest point which is actually more of a side bolster)-19"
Seat bottom length(from the back to the front)-20"
Distance between the top and headrest-7.75"
I was going to weigh them but I couldn't locate my scale but according to the below linked article the oem M Edition seats weigh 32lbs while the Lotus seats w/ Flipside brackets weigh 24lbs.
Onto a few comparative pics now.....
They are definitely not as "comfy" as the stock seats(imo), not that the stock seats are really comfortable but obviously most buy aftermarket seats for better support and to have something that holds them in place while driving, which these do well.
I can't honestly say they are any lower with the Flipside brackets and might even be slightly higher seat position then the oem seats or that could just be from the fixed position since I usually had my oem seat reclined a fair amount but according to this article:
....they put you lower but, imo, they do not seem to. I am asking $1250 plus PayPal fee of 3% and shipping/insurance(will do signature required) if not local but will only ship to the lower 48 states. You can PM or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Will ship within two business days of receiving payment and provide tracking information if shipped.
