All depends if you want to keep a "stock" look or not. Either way, I'd save the original seats for the next owner.

expect that you won't be able to fit two of them in the car. You may even have to remove your passenger seat to get *one* to fit.

You didn't ask, but I'm not sure why you'd *want* to put either of those examples in the car as they are hideous. Get the stockers fixed to your liking :)

There's a reason all the Lotus seats get snapped up by Miata owners... Nothing else proportioned that small and light is available.

In my 2005 the stock seats are perfect except they have no padding and the lumbar pillow is located halfway up my back. There is a thread in here where someone opened them up and fixed all that. It isn't especially hard or difficult, just a special job. If you are going to make a change, that is how you do it. Synaptics3 in NH has a thread on their website showing their custom seat rebuilding for an Elise customer. Pretty cool pics.

If you are really lucky you can find a Lotus Sport Elise owner who wants to sell theirs (Sorry, not me). MTribe sold his a while back, here is the pic he posted:

thanks for the help I am going back to the upholstery shop tomorrow and I will ask them what they think was just looking to get a little imore padding as well as a face lift.

Thanks for the replies
