I don't really see a need for racing seats in a Mini since the stock seats are basically the exact same thing.

Yeah that's true, but they actually designed the Mini seats to very closely imitate racing seats because of how tight the suspension is. When I'm flying around corners, I only move a little because the seats are pretty deep.

I think the sport seats are made by Racaro. A friend that took his seats off said he saw Racaro stamps on them. The stock seats are ofen replaced with race aftermarket seats or buckets that wrap around your shoulders and are hard to get out of. they are very unconfortable [:@]and not for daily driving[:'(]

The only thing with doing aftermarket seats is, being we have side air bags which are in the seats you will throw a srs light cuz your disconnecting the airbag cable.....I did here you have to loop the cable leadin up to the seat to complete the circuit but then you need to go back to the dealer to reset the light and hope they dont say anything.

I'm pretty sure that's true.
