$900 Sparco seat vs. $450 Corbeau seat. Does more expensive mean more better? And is it worth it? Let’s find out.
We bought two identical 350Zs and have been modifying them to be FUN, daily drivers that you can take to the track. James Pumphrey and Zach Jobe are on Team Hi, and their car gets the expensive parts. Nolan Sykes and Aaron Parker are on team Low. Their car gets the cheap ones.
Then we test them to see which components are actually worth spending the money on.
We’ve been focusing on improving our cars performance, but today we’re focusing on the interior...performance. So we’re going to be throwing in new seats, and ALSO adding in roll cages and harnesses.
Team Hi got $900 Sparco QRT-R seats.
Team Low I got $450 Corbeau FX1 Pro seats.
Cars aren’t necessarily one-size-fits all. Especially small sports cars like our Zs. You might find the stock driving position uncomfortable. Sometimes the seats don’t hold you well enough going around a corner and you get flung to the side. If you’ve got short legs and a long torso, or long legs and a short torso, things just might not feel right.
That’s where aftermarket interior parts can come in. A race seat can hold you in place better and make it easier for you to corner hard… or it can be horribly uncomfortable if it doesn’t fit your body right. Maybe the more expensive seat has a nicer quality material on it, but the overall shape and size of the seat is really going to be a matter of personal preference. The cheaper seat might be the right choice anyway if it’s going to be easier to live with and drive in every day.
Even though Nolan is going with a cheaper option he didn't go with the cheapest option. All of his stuff is FIA approved.

When the time comes to buy your aftermarket seats, I highly suggest you go out and try (butt test) as many seats as you can before you buy. Seats are interesting animals. Seats from one manufacturer to the next manufacturer can feel quite different from one another but look very similar. Even seats of different models from the same company can feel totally different from one another. Local car shows can be a good way to try out a variety of seats to find one that works for (fits) you. Also remember, not all of us are little guys and some of us are built on the bigger, fluffier side of the spectrum (I'm 6' and 275 pounds). Seats should 'hug' you to a degree but not try to crush you as you sit in them. Fortunately, there are seats out there that are made a little wider for our bigger, wider (cough* backsides) err... frames. Make sure to check them out if possible. ---Just my two cents.

If you want a track car, sure, but if you are just improving your daily, you are going to hate either of these. Just get a pro to upgrade your seats with more supportive cushioning and new upholstery and you'll get it cheaper and better. Or just buy some used seats from a sports car that has better seats.

Anyone who’s not loaded is going to buy the best stuff they can according to their budget and not bother with stuff like $300 coilovers, some things should not be skimped on, coilovers especially. Seats, on the other hand, my preference would be to find a seat I like cheap out of a wrecked car. A set of Recaro’s from a wrecked Evo or STI perhaps
