    Got my pair from Italy for just under £4K ($5.6k).
    Bargain now looking at these prices.
    Needed to source and buy Sparco runners and base units from US which was quite difficult to be honest.

    Supply and Demand at work.

    They're Sparco's if you can find similar seats of that vintage...

    Ah, but do the default Sparco's have the Cavallino imprint in the leather behind the head resting portion of the seat? ;)

    There were never any non-factory Sparco's made that were similar to the original carbon seats.

    My 360 has black ones with red stitch. I little wear on the driver left bolster as normal, but I'll sell at a bargain for $9,750 and put some lawn furniture in to sit in.

    I'm serious about the price though if someone wants to pay it. That said, I'm 6'6' and with these seats still have room for a helmet!

    If I took the black racing seats out of mine and sold them.. given the current market value for 360's my car would be worth like $5,000. ;)

    I'm so happy I found a car with them. I love how they cradle you, I wouldn't sell them for any price to go to the regular seats. Well I shouldn't say any price...

    Not a fan of the 360 CF seats, they make my back hurt. The 458 seats are VERY comfortable for me and look great in the car.

    Even my wife with a bad back loves mine. But we drive like max 1 hour on trips. Don’t know how they would be on longer trips.

    Many good choices if you want a full carbon non-reclining seat.

    Reclining seat everything out there (that I know of) is at most a carbon back.

    They made my back hurt as well until I found out that you need to kind of "lay down" more than normal. Then the built in lumbar support will "hit" the right spot in your spinal cord and the seats are awesome! If you try to sit too "straight" on them, then they'll end up hurting.

    I've done 5+ hour day drives with my (S) size CF seats which suits my body fine without problems. Tho my friend whos a tad larger guy complained, maybe the size of the seat (too small for the body) makes ones back hurt too?

    Like many things Ferrari, they don’t adapt to you, you adapt to them.

    I get that. Maybe I am more limited at 6'6" than you. That slouch just wasn't good for me. BUT, I know many love them so if it works for you, all good. I will stick with my 458 seats for now and put the stock Daytona's back when/if I ever sell.
