Default Opinions on Corbeau Classic Bucket seat?

Hi Guys:

I just imported this classic 1993 Mini that just arrived from from Japan last week.

The front seats are about trashed and I was thinking of replacing them with the Corbeau Classic Bucket.

The seats look cool but I'm worried they may be not so comfortable due to the fixed position and the raised bolsters.

Anyone have any experience with this type of seat? Thank you.

I'd say that there's too much tongue weight on that UHaul...but on second thought it's probably impossible to do that with an original Mini.

I barely got the mini on the trailer. The tires almost didn't have enough contact with the inner edge of the of ramp. I had a spotter as I drove it up the ramp. I thought at any minute the car would fall into the open area in the middle of the trailer.

Might be fun getting in and out of it with high bolsters.
