Default Sparco seats

Hello people.

I've wanted some new seats and I've been looking at the sparco fighters. A few questions:

1. Do I need to buy anything other than the seat? Do I need a bracket or something to make it fit?

2. Do I need to deal with the airbag light being permanently on after the install?

3. Obviously I lose heated seats. Do I lose anything else besides that? Or any other issues I might encounter?

you need bottom mount brackets and sliders yes.

you need to get a resistor for the airbag light

if you get the right resistor and install correctly, the light will not come on and stay on.

you lose heat, reclinablilty, and i dont believe anything else.

Additionally, you lose the safety of a reclinable seat in the case of a roll over sans-cage.

This is very true. That is why it is ideal to run a roll bar, and 5-6 point harness attached to the bar.
