Recaro SPG will fit, but only 1 seat lol. You can leave stock in passenger seat if the seats are offset and your "passenger" doesn't have a left shoulder! When I was looking at seats I think I came across a really narrow OMP seat and even then it would have been a real trick to fit two of them.

It would be nice to get two seats with shoulder support to fit in an Exige. I saw one person had aluminum seats made. This would be fine if it was a track only car. I have thought about having custom CF seats made but hard to justify a one-off project.

Best bet for the type of seat you're talking about I believe is the OMP HTE-R 400 - it's pretty narrow, about 22.8" wide at the shoulder (which I believe is the widest point). Otherwise, the Tilletts are quite good! They're only 45cm or 17.7" wide at the shoulder. One seat should be doable with the OMP seat...not sure about 2

EDIT: Sorry it was actually the OMP Prototipo I was thinking of, its 53 cm (20.8") and may actually work with two but is super expensive.

I think we are hijacking this thread but o-well.

I have a Tillet B6 for the driver and a B5 for the passenger. I find that European seats seem to be made for narrow chested individuals. Still the Tillets do not really provide any shoulder support.

Perfect. Just what I was looking for.

I'd like to order two of the above seats that will fit in my 2011 Elise.

Can you give me a link to this exact seat (that will fit my Elise)? From your site, I can't figure out which model this is.

2011 Lotus Elise REV300 - Starlight Black Metallic
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT
2011 Tesla Roadster 2.5 - Midnight Blue (sold)
2004 Chevy SSR Convertible Pickup - Ultra Violet (sold)
