[JDM] Mazdaspeed Seats

Synthetic Leather 'Sport' seats come in Red, White or Black with the Grey MS centre. White and Black most common.
'Type-F' Suede ones come in Navy Blue, Black, Red or Grey. Black most common.

Rails are built-in to the seat - and therefore they are a universal rail - but there are car-specific brackets that attach to each corner of the rails.

They are now unavailable new, as they (along with many older MS parts) have been discontinued.

Secondhand ones will appear below, and generally sell for about 15000-40000 per seat, or 40000-80000 a pair (depending on condition of course)

People been checkin' out your MS seat install thread then pop over here for a look hehe.

That 30000yen, black seat(s) auction, how much to land that here in NZ?

Rupewrecht 19-04-2007 10:47 PM

C'mon people, click the link. i can't do all the work for you....this means you, Kyle :P

But in this case, only one pictured of the Black Type F, so only one seat.

current bid is 30000, buy it now is 45000. 23 hours left.

based on a 35000 sell price, it'd be about $740 landed in Aus, and at a guess +100 to ship to NZ.

You'd be better off buying the 60000yen pair of black Sport ones higher up the thread, IMO. Only one lot of fees/shipping etc then, and would be under $1300 for the pair.

Just a quick question about these seats to satisfy my own curiosity (not in the market myself, maybe in the future if I start prettying up the ol' 323).

Do any/all of these seats suit a 2-door (eg. the drivers backrest in my 323 flips forward and the passengers backrest flips forward and slides the base forward in the one motion)?

Rupewrecht 04-06-2007 08:42 PM

They all flip forward via the lever on the side, but don't slide forward as well. At least not with my BA application.

Flip forward only, the rail kits do not have the provision to slide either.

I was wrong actually, the go a ridiculously long way forward, but you have to hold the adjusting arm up. So they'd be fine for a hatch.

Aaron 16-08-2007 02:07 PM

Oh for what it's worth - my size person doesn't fit well in the the seats, the thigh bolsters need to be spread to make them seats useable. Slimmer people would be fine though.

I've sat in the MS seats and I like them. Problem I found was that the MS rails mimic the JDM rails so they sit the seats much further forward than ADM and don't go back as far.

if you know what your doing this can be negated by making a set like what i had

Dogo 07-11-2007 01:17 PM

I should stop looking at these and get mine retrimmed instead. They're looking a bit "loved"

Protege03 13-11-2007 07:39 PM

can u get back seats for a BJ model?

Rupewrecht 13-11-2007 07:47 PM

You can't get back seats for any car.

It wouldn't take too much effort. The rails on each MS seat are identical, but there's little brackets that go on each corner of the rail that are different for each car. Lantis/Astina one are pretty rare, but they wouldn't be that hard to get someone to fabricate some - it's just 3 or 4mm bent steel. Getting them new is virtually impossible though.

Could i use the rails from my existing seats or are they solidly attached?

You can remove the raill from you standard seats...but i'm honestly not sure if they're interchangeable with the MS ones - i've never needed to try.

You'll be in this situation for any aftermarket seats you buy, as few make rails to fit a BA. At least i've got some mounts i can send you diagrams of.

Yep send the pics/diagrams, one of my clients is a steel engineering works with computer lathes and all the other stuff, if they can make a set for me, i'll see if they can make 10-12 other sets for anyone else needing them.

Rupewrecht 20-04-2008 10:51 PM

Might take me a bit to get detailed specs, as i'd have to pull my seats out :p

I'll take some pics during the week tho.
