Hello

Just wandered if anyone has changed their seats and if so what are you using?

Thanks...

Yes I have. You can look on ebay for GT3 replica seats. They are leather seats and made out of carbon fiber. Run about $1500 a pair. You basically need to buy an adapter to install it on your boxster.

Are these seats comfortable? I am 6'4'' but my wife is around 5'6'', will she feel uncomfortable driving the car?

I want to change the seats so that I can pass the broomstick test....

Thanks guys,

Gustavo

Whats that?

The "broomstick" test means that the top of the drivers helmet must be below the line from the top of the roll bar to the top of the windshield.

I hope this helps,

Gustavo

Got ya.

I will definitely fail that at 6" 1' and with the standard seats. I dont sit too well with them low down. I find I get less back pain having them up slighlty as I can get the back to angle a bit further back.

I bought a pair of Sparco Milano seats on an impulse then realised I couldn't get any runners for them to fix them to my car - doh!

I installed a pair of Corbeau seat in my boxster and I'm very happy with the fit and confort. Here is the link http://www.corbeau.com/products/trs/trs.shtml#

The regular width fits perfectly, I don't think that the wide would work. They sell the sliding base for the boxster so no drilling required. they are lower then the oem electric seat. I'm 6' tall, if you want I could measure the space between my head and the roll bar. Let me know if you want pictures.

I'd be interested to see how they look.

OK I know this is an old post, but thought instead of starting a new thread I would use this one

I wanted to recover my seats, and is proving to be very expensive.

Now there is a used auto parts store that I called for something else, and inquired if he had any 2001 boxster seats, he said that he just sold a pair but that he just got a pair of 997 GT3 seats with 6k on them.

He is supposed to send me some pics and price later today.

Does anyone have any experience with these seats, is it worth to change Boxster regular to the GT3 seats, or should I just get mine recovered?

If yes, is installation easy, the shop told me that they will fit existing rails. The only difference is that I will not have the power function, which one the seat is set up I never use it anyways.
