Default Narrow bucket seats?

I'm looking for some narrow bucket seats.
So far i have the Cobra Racer Pro and Recaro SPG on my list,
will also try a Bimarco Expert.
I'm a bit on the small side (5"9, 155lbs, 32inch waist) and need to find something that fits me and the miata.
Would have to be FIA homologated as well...
Ideas, anyone?

I think the cobra racer pro is the way to go unless you can make custom mounts for a bride zodia...

i'd go with the SPG. I had it in my NB for a while and could not be more content with it. It holds you well but is also quite comfortable. 300km trips were no problem

EDIT: also if you end up with bride seat, I have both drivers and passengers bride rails to mount it i could sell you

I thrive in my Bride Exas III. Fit perfectly no drama.

Bride seats run quite narrow. My weight and waist size are very similar to yours and I fit nice and snug when I sat in a Vios III.

Agreed. I have the Bride Zetta III for my driver seat and the Exas III for the passenger. They are perfect.

Thanks guys!
Bride seats are a little hard to find over here,
and i wouldn't want to import a seat that doesn't fit me in the end...

At your size posted above, you'd have no problems fitting into a Bride seat. However, I can understand if you don't want to import a seat. It took nearly three months to get mine.

importing one from japan is a breeze, wait time depends on how much are you willing to spend on shipping and your local package limitations

Honestly if the SPG is in your budget then get it. It's hard to beat Recaro when it comes to a quality seat.

Buddy club seats are pretty narrow.

Based on your size the racer pro would be a great choice. It should fit in the miata pretty easily. I had one in an NC, but it was a bit snug for me.

Buddy Club seats are tiny.


I'm 6'1" 160lbs, about a 31 waist. I fit snug in a buddy club, and I fit like a glove into my Bride VIOS III

Worth a look into both!
