Default A R53 named Stella....

Hey everyone! Figured I'd start a garage thread for Stella (yes named after charlize theron'scharacter in the Italian job ) Already done is lowered on H&R springs, alta rear sway (full stiff), strut tower bar, wmw 17% pulley, Juggernaut Machinewerks intake (still fabricating the box), xxr 532 16x8 et20 wheels, dipped grille, shorty antenna, co2 intercooler spray cipher racing seats, innovate wideband, flossy heavyweight shift knob, craven adjustable ssk and shift well gate. Soon to come is a studio exhaust (on Tuesday!) and a Memphis audio 10" mojo/1000w rms amp.

Thanks! The rear is going up about a 1/4" tonight. I am having some rubbing issues. Haha. Right now it's 15x8 with a 225 45 15 rear and a 15x7 with a 205 45 15 front. I know it's not functional but I love the look of the staggered rear.

On another note, I am hoping to go back and do pic details of all my mods to this point, I've always regretted not picturing everything as I did it. So hopefully I can do that this weekend

The cipher racing seats are great. don't get me wrong. you do kinda get what you pay for, these definitely aren't brides or sparcos. BUT, id much rather have seats like these on the off chance I tear them.

Heres my review (scale 1-5)
quality: 4.5
comfort: 4
ease of installation: (mind you I work on cars all day) 4.8

The center of the back is actually velcroed on, so you can open it up and add lumbar support.

as for the install.

remove the stock seats (theres some trick that you can do to prevent the airbag light from coming on. this would be the time to do it. but I haven't done it yet bc I didn't know how)
to remove the stock seats, there are 4 bolts holding the slider frame to the floor. they require a larger torx bit (if I recall it was a 45ish?) and remove the 3 harnesses under the seat.

your cipher racing seats have come with their own little sliders. they aren't the best, but work fine for me.

so, heres the fun part. buy a piece of 1.5x48"x.25" flat bar. measure a few inches over the entire length of the floor holes to get the proper length for each piece of flat bar. at the center (lengthwise) of the flat bar, drill clearance holes for the bolts for the floor. then measure the sliders to drill those clearance holes.

bolt the sliders to the flatbar firstI cut a section of 2" angle to make a bracket for the seatbelt connection.

Then jus painfully bolt the entire assembly to the floor.

Im planning to pull my passenger seat eventually, so if you pull the trigger on these I can pull it then to dimension it.

Cheers!
