Anyone want to help make a list of OEM seats that will fit in Z cars? How about using this format;

Make/Model
Year
Any fitment issues?

If you have any suggestions post them and I'll edit this post.

From LOTS of previous searching, this is what I've come up with (please correct any errors):
CRX w/o seat belts
Porsche 911
Rx7
Integra
Conquest TSI
Camaro
Eclipse
240sx
MR2
Miata
Fiero
S2000
C4 Corvette
Starion
Del Sol

(I haven't tried any of these, this is just info I gathered when I was trying to find seats to swap into my 240) Hope this helps.

I have BMW Z 3 seats in mine (or will when I get the interior done)...leather, power and heated. Fit nice on custom mounts. Seat belts are intergated into the seats.

I am in the market for new seats, but after searching, I have decided to re-upholster the stock seats. It will cost more but since I don't have welder and not that good at fabing anyway, it will be less hassle for me. Plus no fit problems. It might be a good addition to someone's business to fab mounting brackets for a specific non-oem seat or a couple of specific non-oem seats.

if you want comy believe it or not I've see Saab seats fit into a Z with a roll cage. Viggen/Aero seats are by far your best best for confy and supportive, but you'd want to remove the wide airbags

Ok I have Fiero seats in my 78 280.

I took the fiero seats, and removed their sliders. I mounted two pieces of flat bar between the fiero stock mounting points. (left to right) I did this because the mounting tabs for a fiero are further apart than my 280. I then simply bolted the stock 280 sliders to the flat bar. (using only 8.8 grade bolts) 12mm.

The seat does slide, but not through the full length of travel. It goes all the way forward, but not all the way back. The seat rubs the tranny tunnel and won't go all the way back.

The seat sits slightly higher than stock. If your 6ft tall, don't use them unless you want to do more mods.
I wear a helmet on the track, and my helmet touches the rollcage sometimes.
Hope it helps someone.

I have Starion seats in my 240. I love them. Best seat for long distance driving of all the cars I own (6). I've driven six and seven hour stints with no fidgeting or sore spots. Vastly more comfortable than the seats in my wife's new Mazda 3.

Great fit in the S30 and easy to fab mounts. No welder needed, just an angle grinder and a drill. The front bolts up and the rear requires only a stick of 3/4"x3/4" square tube.

There is a guy here that was in an accident and has back injuries that he blames on the seat. Every time I mention these seats he chimes in with his story. I can only speak to that by saying people often get hurt in auto accidents. You have to decide for yourself if this seat is inherently dangerous.

Miata seats would be a good swap as the look very similar to the 1st gen Z seats, but obviously with a modern touch and headrest speakers. I think i'll be doing fiero seats in my zx.

My seats bolted straight into the front and a tab made across the back. They go all the way forward and back. They also have manual height adjustment (good for the wife), lumbar adjust and seat swab adjust to tighten on your back. Unfortunately I dont know what they came out of, but it was a two door as the passenger seat has a knob that automaticvally bends the back down and shoots it forward. It will be out of a jap car either Mazda or Toyota I would think. There is a whole section Part 8 on my website if someone wants to ID them

91 Supra seats. Mounted with 2 cross bars to accommodate wider seat assemblies. Need to be recovered really, they'll do until the Corbeau's come in.

I agree, they do look nice but if those are the electically adjustable ones, they weigh a ton. Like 80 lbs a piece iirc.
