Yes ,I'v done lots of reading about NuBax / ProBax, Trying to find a set of seats, Maybe used black ones. Thinking of installing them in my Pantera, its very tight inside too, Probax seat will fit.

Nice car. I would keep checking back. It would not surprise me to find someone selling some take offs, including a dealership that upgraded to track seats. You could also buy a set of new seats from www.lotusgarage.com

Oh... posting a photo of a Pantera is a sure way to guide me over to Pantera International to browse the ads. Noticed a photo of yours in the gallery as best of show winner.

Just some overall measurements H, W, L, Mounting, bolt pattern ,,, anything will help. I went to see some at the dealer but could not break out the tape. They sure look like they will fit, They feel and look great, Going to look tuff in my Pantera

Thank you all, Looks like the Lotus guys are as cool as the Pantera guys, Always willing to help.

---O--- ya

Still need someone to unbolt there ProBax seats and send them to me.

off i go back outside again !

alrighty i left my tape measure at work so a combination of a steel rule and eyeballing it


lower seat at the widest position from side to side is 44cm
depth of the whole seat from hither to yon 65cm
backrest widest part is 50cm
i had trouble measuring the rails since my damn ruler wouldnt fit, they look around 41x40cm

i'll have to wait til the morning to get better measurements unless someone else pops them up first.

haven't checked yet but according to the lotus bumpfh the new seats have created more room (can't recall if that included vertically), i haven't noticed it being any smaller, if anything it does seems roomier.

Hmmm. Well if the driver is actually sitting taller, one might have marginally better ingress/egress too.

I have an '05 but have tried the '06 seats (just sitting, not driving). In the '05 it seems like you are sitting in the seat and in the '06 it feels like you are sitting on the seat. I would have to drive an '06 for a few hours to determine if they are more comfortable. The '05 seat is comfortable for me. You know a seat is good when you're in the car for a few hours and haven't thought about the seat. That's the way the '05 seat is for me.

Bring your wallet... on second thought, bring along a friend's wallet too.
