If you have extra money laying around then why not. but if its just everyday spirited driving its not worth it to save 40 pounds a seat unless you spent a bunch of cash on like sparco milano seats so you can still be comfortable

Really? I think the OEM seats are actually rather comfortable compared to a lot of other cars I've owned. Aftermarket seats feel awesome at first, but give it a few hours on a longer trip and you start thinking otherwise with how stiff they usually are.

Just make sure you are getting legit seats, not knock offs. Make sure they are FIA tested, otherwise any accidents your insurance company can deny and coverage for medical bills. Plus the knock offs tend to break and shatter in accidents...

yea their authentic Sparco Milano 2 seats my buddy giving me a good deal everything for 650... then like 80 bucks to get it fabricated to fit the G because the base is for a 350z

ima keep the leathers if i end up switching back in the future but the deal sounded pretty sweet to pass up.

nope, they're the same. they sent me both by accident. the 350z mounts are marked as 350z/G35, the G35 ones have the exact same mounting points w/just a slightly different structure.
