I was looking at getting some seats that would look good but not cost me a arm and a leg. I was looking into the DAD racing seats, I am looking to spend around 5-600 for a set. Any help would be great.
theres a black and red racing seat on ebay with a trd patch stitched in it. it looks really nice, not sure what its made out of, and its not from TRD, just got the badge. looks great from what i can see, just search for "supra" and it'll come up somewhere. they run about 400 per pair.
Lol ...those DAD seats suck. Plain and simple. They're low quality and the old saying plays true, you get what you pay for. If you decide to buy them, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about the first time you pull the seats out of the box.
How do you know? have you had them before? do you know someone that has them? I have sat in a few Dads seats before and I liked them. but i want some more out side input that is why this thread is going, give us some reasons bro.
Yes, a very good friend of mine with a 2001 Honda Accord has the black DAD seats pictured above. Let me try and explain.
Do you see the 2 harness holes right over the DAD stitching? On both of the seats in my friend's car, the plastic surrounding those holes have about 1/2" of play. The plastic for the hardware on the side of the seat is very low quality. If you've spent time in the seats adjusting them, you'd realize this. If you've ever sat in both a Sparco/Recaro/Cobra seat and then in a DAD seat, you'll also notice the use of lower quality fabric on the DAD's. I wouldn't trust those seats in a serious crash to be honest, either. Are they even FIA approved? I can't find any information that says so.
If you want to spend 5-600 on seats why get seats like DADs. I have sat in them and they look and feel cheap, which for the quality, they arent. I pain $550 for each of my torinos brand new and would highly reccomend something that is well known for its quality and durability. A seat goes through a lot of shit. Besides if i saw a supra with DADs in it i would think it was a civic wanna be. Sorry, but a supra is no place for cheap crap.
Oh no I am not trying to be cheap, I was just wondering why one would go with one or the other. I would if I had to buy recaros' the black ones with the white lettering. my brother in law will sell me them for about 600 for the set and they are in good condition so with all the info going around I will buy quality there is no doubt about it, I want the best for my dog. Money is not an issue like my first post stated jsut was wondering if there was any quality out there for that much, now I think that I will spend the 1000 for a set of sparcos or my brother in laws recaros. Thanks guys for your help on this.
