    Tifosi, although the sports/racing seats from the factory certainly look more striking than the regular or Daytona seats, esp. for Maranellos and Modenas, how do they feel on the streets, over long distances and many hours etc?

    Many thanks,

    I've got them in my '01 550 and once properly adjusted (boy, I wish they had power adjustments) they are INCREDIBLY comfortable and supportive over longer distances. Other than my griping about power adjustments, they are far better, to me, than the daytona seats. Just my $.02.

    Just out of curisouty, what is the normal associated cost with factory sport seats?

    On the 360, the leather sport seat option is $4000.

    $4000, well worth it. Looks so much better and you will enjoy the track days a lot better.

    For $4000, I would purchase them. They are about 50 pounds lighter then stock, provide excellent support and look very sporty :)

    550 seat offers a bit more cushion. Would be my pick in either car.

    I have a 348 Challenge with Serie Specialle CF Sport Seats. They offer great lateral support but I really would like to see more lumbar support for those long drives....but I wouldn't trade 'em for the stock seats.
