Default WTB: 996 Euro GT3 seats

Does anyone have a pair they're trying to unload? Asking for a friend.

Rob,

You probably will not find anything cheaper than these. They seem to have the sub-belt bar.

Good luck with your search.

If for track use, try to sit in one with your helmet and HANS before buying. The head rests can push your head forward with the HANS resulting in your face pointing toward your navel. Iíve experienced this with my helmet and HANS in a studentís car.

This is true, but you can use a BK seat mount and tilt the seat back to fix the problem.

That introduces other problems unless you already have long arms and short legs.

I have these seats in my 964 and previously my 996. If anyone wants to test sit them let me know, happy to make that happen. I do have the seat tilted back slightly so it does not do as Roundel said. Without the pitch your head is well, looking at your navel.

Thanks, Ken. I'll hit you up next week.
