They look fairly wide and forgiving actually! And after looking on the website they are cheaper than what I expected... Totals up to £1,376 for the twin skinned with mounts, covers and dress up kit. Certainly not too shabby if your in the market for a set of carbon seats.

Michele, do you know if anyone has fitted them in a Speedster/VX220? Would love to see a picture to see how they fit with the Speedster/VX220 rollover bar and it's protectors.

Michele,

What's the weight of each seat type, the padding and the mounting brackets?

Yes, you can add pictures from a url, you just need to use the [-img] [-/img] tags (without the -) at the start and end of the URL.

Or use the image embed button

No way would they fit with the rollbar + protectors. They look fantastic.

NICE! But wondering if that square part on the bottom is very comfortable? (Is it that low that you sit between the rails?)

they certainly are the best looking carbon-with-a-bit-of-padding seats i've seen.

Michele,

The vx220 has an extra set of protective "spoons" attached to the rollbar, that the elise and exige do not have.
That restricts the available space, and limits the type of seats we can fit.

Hence the question here if they have been fitted to a vx220/speedster before?
