I'll keep it short. I'm fat and I'm looking for a new set of seats for my Corsa Lite. The usual Bucket seats and reclinable "racing" seats are not an option because I end up breaking the leg supports after a few months. These usually in turn provide support to the back rest and you can sort of see where this is going.

What I am looking for is an aftermarket seat that does not have the exaggerated leg supports. I want something similar to the standard Corsa seats, but I can't find them anywhere. Autostyle.co.za used to stock a pair, but they removed them from the site before I could order.

If anyone can point me to a local dealer or a site, I would greatly appreciate it.

Much appreciated. Ready Autoparts is in Montagu Gardens, right? And Racer's Edge is the one in Parow/Goodwood mainroad?

Ja, so I went to ready auto parts and picked up a pair of Sparco, or "Sparco", seats for R2500. Not a bad price at all...

Are those the "Sparco" seats with the velcro removable centre piece? With that carbon fibre finish.

Gave the car to my mom in the end. The seats work fine for her. They do seem to be a much better quality than the NRX seats you can buy for the same price. I'll definitely recommend them in this price range.

Post a pic of where the problem is. Maybe we can figure something out.
