im thinking about buying a like new sparco speed racing seat in red with the sliders and everything needed to mount them in an a4, for 230 shipped to me, is this worth it. do you think i should pass or pick it up. i know the seat goes for like 270 and the sliders and stuff are like a little over 100 but i dont know if i want a red seat. what should i do. i think i only want to put it in when im at the track but i might want to use it for everyday driving for a while too.

what color is your car? i think it'll be fine. it's a pretty good deal. which sparco is it?

plus: at least it's a sparco and not apc or tenzo r...lol.

i'd spend the $140 to get a new seat in the color i want.

you could always have it recovered down the road in the color you want or in leather. you could possibly dye it too...

my car is silver with the black interior and it would cost me more than 140 to get the color i want because of the fact this one comes with sliders and everything. and its the sparco speed seat, the cheapest one they have but does the job well.

230 for a used red seat with sliders vs 270 for a new seat in a color you like + 100 for sliders and brackets.

you're only paying $140 more for new one.

speed seat is a really good seat imo.. actually pretty comfortable.. personally if it was only for track days, i would pick it up...
