I say the LCDs only if you have kids. If not, complete and utter waste of money, time and effort.

ummm what? They don't look good in a Coupe? So stock pwns Recaro, Bride racing seats? Umm i think not. I think you should go with either SI seats or RSX. If you wanna get real picky you can get the limited edition SI seats or the Recaro Type R seats. Either way you can't go wrong. Good luck and let us know whats up.

wow.. well quite a few different opinions.. ill look into it at let u guys know what i go with.. i mite stick with stock seats and get them re-upholstered with a black/tan leatherette, but that seems to be a bit expensive ( around 2500) my reason for stickin with stock is cuz of my neon alrdy being mounted and lookin great.

eh, screw the neon, get some Recaro racing seats or Bride, hell you can get the Brides cheaper than $2500. $2500 is rediculous, where on earth are you looking?

Neon is easy just use new zip ties. I found a pair of RSX fronts in leather for 500. So you'd be wasting a lot of money just to cover up those crappy/uncomfortable front seats

Here in norcal there are only like 3ppl within a 2hr drive that will do upholstery.. and i went to 2 of them Audio Image = $2500
and then some mom n pop place that would charge me the same, but wouldnt do that pattern i wanted.



How hard is it to intall the RSX leather? Im assuming it cant be that hard.

Damn, $2500 for upholstering???

You can get a good deal on Recaros and Brides and get both for less than that
