Thank you very much for the info. Looks like I should fit, or least I will be much more comfortable because my waist is closer to 39". The OEM seats for both the 2005 and 2006(slightly better) yrs pinch my hips and thighs. This is only thing holding me back from pursing an Elise. Nice pictures. It looks like you got the ultrasuede padding. Is the padding worth the add'l cost?
