I was wondering has anyone installed any Racing seats or different seats with more bolstering? I rode in my friends Focus ST and the stock Recaro seats were pretty nice. I know Planted makes brackets for our cars, and read on a Japanese persons blog about their time installing a leather Recaro into their car. Seems like you have to futz with the airbag stuff though so I’m unsure if a more bolstered seat is worth it. Thanks!

What you need is called a CG-Lock, no better bolsters needed. Ive had the same CG-Lock for the past 3 cars? 4 cars? Ive had it quite awhile now and never had any issues with it, clamps me down very well and Im a very big fella. I never go super duper tight unless Im running an autocross event, just medium tight and it holds me just fine. Amazon link below.

What type of seat does your 3 have? I have the sGT model with the red stitched seats and was wondering if this would be a good improvement for holding me in my seat better when doing canyon runs or if wouldn't be too noticeable?

Trust me this CG-Lock is all you need, another seat is way more money than its worth.

FYI.. if you want a CG Lock you better hurry and grab one as the manufacturer has stopped making and selling them. They even took down the Amazon listings.

They are now making a new product that is designed to help back posture...

I found a new one for sale on e-bay and it looks like ft86speedfactory.com still has some.
