I was looking at aftermarket seats but Ive come to the conclusion that I really like the stock ones visually, im just not happy with holding capability.

Ive heard of people getting the foam on their seats remolded, has anyone had prior experience with this type of modification in the past?

I was considering changing the fabric type for the centre sections of the seats to help with this also.

I was also considering a racing harness as this could hold you in place, but I believe these are illegal in NSW.

On a side note some of the aftermarket seats out there look very nice, so post the photos if you've got them, I dont think these photos exist on this forum.

This is the seat which made me think my stock burnt orange ones look good enough, they just need to be improved.



These are nice also.


More info on that OEM Momo steering wheel please???

Im pretty sure it is a japanese unit. It wouldnt be any good legally in oz as it doesnt have the air bag.

As always

It is the Japanese factory 350z Momo steering wheel option which supposedly retains the factory airbag!!!

As far as I'm aware, four point harnesses are road legal as long as they do not interfere with the safety of the rear passenger. I don't think you'll have too many issues in the Z.

I know someone who has a 70's Fairlady, and he runs harnesses in it.

Any more than 4 points may not be legal though.

My friend has Sparco Evos in his S15. They are physically wide (because of the wings) but grip you like you wouldn't believe. The only downsides he has with them is rear seat access (once again not an issue) and if the belt gets stuck behind the seat, you can't pull them over the side bolsters without opening the door.

Being a wider car, the Z33 should not get this issue.

They're under $2K each, so they're not an unreasonable price (and far cheaper than buying factory S15 seats).

My mate with the RX3 said harnesses are illegal so he has to run both harness and seat belt in the car, though the harness only gets used on the track.
