Driving competitively requires a racing seat that lets you stay put. Hard cornering and braking constantly try to make you slide left and right, or forward out of the seat. If you're investing energy into staying put, that's mental and physical resources you can't devote to the most important thing: winning. That's true during street driving, at least the way they sometimes drive on the street. A stock seat simply doesn't have enough lateral support to keep your butt planted or your shoulders in one place so you can make precise inputs to the steering, accelerator or brakes. Cipher racing seats are optimized for "spirited" driving, and are engineered to work properly with 4- or 5-point racing harnesses instead of seatbelts and airbags. Upholstered in high-quality materials these seats also happen to look amazing.

I love the seats they look great. My only problem is the sliders I can't get the seat close enough for me.

They're not too bad. A little narrow.

I was a little concerned about ordering online but after I received the seats, I was super impressed with the quality of the product.

Very Nice Look And Feel
These seats add a very nice look and feel from stock. Fairly easy to install, but I had to lower my rating because the installation instructions are pretty vague. In the video, they says the sliders are installed at the factory. They are not, and the instructions leave you guessing as to which way to place them and where to put the spacers. Not too hard to figure out for a semi seasoned tech, but a beginner could be left completely lost. Overall, once I got the orientation figured out, it was a breeze from there.

Is this price for a pair of the seat and will the sliders mount on factor seat brackets or will I have to order the after market set?
