Is it just me or does anyone else find the std rallye/xsi seats uncomfy on long journeys!? :mad:

I need some nice after market recliners, or even fixed...

I guess it depends on what size you are. I find them very comfy indeed. Conversely i find the leather seats in my mates beemer very uncomfortable!

Well I am big and I think the seats are fine for long journeys. Have done about 12000 miles since july in the rallye and I think they are more comftable than the leather gti ones

I have owned two rallyes and a GTI...by far the rallye seats were the comfy-est. Due to them being older and more "used" they were alot softer and I just sank into them.

If it any use to anyone Im reletively small :D:D

Only thing about standard seats is they dont hold you in as well when going round corners with abit of pace

I have sat in much worse seats for that than the rallye standard seats though!

monaco's are crap though, most toilets are more comfortable

I wanted some buckets for track days and if they were comfortable, the road too! Loved the plain look of the sparco sprints! Not too in ya face! Just black with sparco on the top in white! Im 14 stone and quite wide and they fit me perfectly! Thought they'd be hard but are really well padded! Heard a few people say the monarcos were to hard and un-padded so went for these! They've got to be the best buget seat! They look damn cool too! I'll be keeping them in for road use too as they seem more than comfortable! Only cost 110 per seat!(plus sub:) frames

i have monacos and i like em i think they are ok comfy wise they do the job they are intended for and thats holding you in when you feel like being daft round bends dont get me wrong for motorway driving they might get a bit uncomfortable but i dont care as long as when i want too i know i can thrash it and aint gonna slide around

monaco's are track seats... they aint any good for long distance driving...

i found them really uncomfortable, might as well sit on a metal box...

i'm pretty slim, so they didn't really do much for me in the way of holding me in...
