I sure dont know about aftermarket racing seats .... Maybe a tuner forum would be more help. Not that this isnt a tuner forum, but a different one.

I dont know.

I was going to post that I really like the 2 tone interior of the Hybrid. The blue and beige/tan really is nice looking. I wish that was avail for the regular sedan.

21000 for a pair!?! What currency?

You might want to research this swap a bit more. You'd have better chances with the USDM DC5 seats. I think the airbag system between the RSX and the ITR are a bit different. I think the RSX has side airbags and the passenger side position sensor. I do not know if the ITR has a sensor like that but I'm sure it doesn't have the side airbags.

It's wiring it all up that may be a problem. But I'd rather not disable anything or have to deal with a constant SRS light.

NO NO NO

This is what you need to do right here.

Corbeau Racing Seats.

Heres the link to thier Site : http://www.corbeau.com/prod_index/prod_index.shtml

i had some of the Black CR-1's in my RSX and they were MUCH more comfy than sparco's or recaro's, and they are about 1/3 of the price, not to mention, they are excellent quality, so if i were you, this is what i would be doing.

They come in Numerous colors, styles, and fits.

i had the CR1's also, but in my eclipse GSX and I loved them.

On my RSX-S i kept the seats stock and ran harnesses and I was fine for track days.

You guys do know there are airbags in the seats right?

And active head restraint

And weight and position sensors

Not only would it be kindof dumb to remove safety equipment, I imagine the car would be confused about how it's airbags were functioning and who was sitting where.
