Yeah, the price is appealing. Not sure if I like the stigma of a cheap seat though Alternatively looking at Recaro Pro Racers... but those are so expensive.

What do you think of these? Im not sure about Momo







Third one is the safe choice... first one is kinda cool, but not sure about it. Not sold on the two tone of the second one.

I've never been a big fan of Momos. Lots of bfc guys run Corbeaus and are generally happy with them. The largest complaint I see is the quality of the material and that it wears more quickly than expected. I know they have a rep of being the poor man's seat, but I bet they're on par with Sparcos from a comfort perspective.

To be honest, I'm not sure exactly. Though I'd have to question the quality these days now that the company has been passed around a few times.

yeah, they were sold about 3 times in 12 years or so, with one of the companies being an American manufacturer with most production done in China. Pretty sure manufacturing is still done in China.
