You don't need to worry, they don't sell knock off parts

You could find him on here, afgmoto1978, or he's on facebook if you have that, Adam Griffith.

FYI, after some agonizing, I am going with these seats (however, mine will have the grey insert to match the factory look on my 1980 SA):

Scat 80-1614-51L: Series 1614 Seat | JEGS

They also make compatible brackets for 1st gen cars, so I picked up some of those as well. If they fit, I'll post up some pics here. Based on the best I could do at measuring, looks like they should fit. Fingers crossed.

Has anyone tried fitting Recaro Sportster GT's?

I know that the Recaro Sportster CS's fit with a bit of modification but the GT's look a lot more modern IMO.

Dimension wise, the shoulders are the same width as well as the base..

Has anyone installed the Braum Advan seats in an FD yet. I'm going to try to use the stock sliders and make my own adaptors. The seats arrive tomorrow, I was hoping someone had tried to use stock sliders on similar seats...might save me some headaches.

I have installed the Braum Venom in my FD with universal sliders and planted seat base. I have pictures I can share latter on when I get back to my computer. I think they are the same dimensions and they clear the door panel but do not slide all the way back due to the recline mechanism

Thank you Mike, I got the new Braum Advan today and tried to install them. I'm 5'11 with long legs, the backwards travel is fine on the stock seats. The Braum Advan has the same problem, as your Venom. The recline mechanism bulges out too far and hits the interior trim panel, which unfortunately bulges out in the same spot. I pulled the trim panel out just to see if I could get some more travel, got about another inch. so if I trim the interior plastic, which I don't want do do, I can get another inch, which is still not enough. Bummer....I don't know what to do at this point. The seats look so cool in the car, it's a shame they don't fit.

Does anyone have any advice....is there any adjustable back sport seat that works ....and doesn't cost $3000.....and does anyone want a set of new Braum Advan seats!!!

Braum Seats

I thought about trimming the panel as well but want to keep the car nice, I ended up getting the same Bride Strata II japan as posted above about a year ago but have not installed them yet. Anyway here are what the Braum seats look like in an FD.
I should note that I only installed sliders on the driver side and have the passenger side bolted right to the Planted seat bracket.

The passenger seat on the drivers side.
Thanks Mike for the pictures. Trimming the panel will only give about anther inch of backward travel. It's not worth marring the interior. I think I found a solution....reverse the seats. Putting the passenger seat on the drivers side, the seat can go all the way back. The inner seat belt mount will have to be mounted to the floor. There's already a mounting hole in the floor to do this. I haven't bought the Planted seat brackets yet, so I just used some wood on the floor to raise the seats up. So far everything seems to fit, the seats touch the door at the bottom, but the door will close without forcing it.

The Braum seat as far back as it will go.
There's 5 inches of backward travel lost. Even notching the panel only gets another inch, the inner car frame widens out at this spot.
The stock seat as far back as it will go.
Here are some pictures showing the problem with the seat fitment.

I bought them from RHD Japan as a special combo with choice of rails. I went with the LR type. I'll just say they were close to RZ/Spirit R Recaros price wise. But RHD Japan is cheaper then what I could find buying from US retailers by several hundred per seat even with the shipping.

I second this, it was a bit cheaper through RHD Japan, and they came with all authenticity certificates and etc.

Seats went in over the weekend, not only that, but they fit and feel amazing in the car. Ironing out some suspension stuff, so I havent had a chance to sit in them for longer than 5 minutes at a time.

Glad to see they arrived safely and are installed, they look great in the car!

Another win for RHD Japan!

From the pictures I see Mazda changed the inner trim panel, it's tapered in and doesn't bulge out like my 1993 panel, (you can see mine in the pictures above).....interesting, that allows more clearance for the recline adjusters. Maybe it's just on the rear seat trim package?

Interesting, I never knew that. I guess I'll be looking for later pieces from Japan from now on haha.

Bride Japan is real Bride seats and the others are knock offs.

Bride Japan offers FIA certification on their race worthy seats (non-reclining) and uses superior materials.

All BRIDE seats / seat rails are made in Japan and of the highest quality.

Bride has a new seats that suits the FD according to their "simulation" (product selection guide).

The A.I.R. and the EDIRB (bride backwards) seats.

A.I.R looks more friendly to the larger of us.
