Talking Viggen seats

Any guys out there with a viggen fill me in on how much better your seats are compared to normal 9-3 seats. i keep sliding around and want something that hugs a bit better. I wanna do a viggen kit on my 9-3 anyway and wanna replicate everything but the engine. also i'v been getting mixed reviews on the ecu staging. i wanna go stage one but I don't want to spend all this money on one for a less reliable car. Also if i do go stage one can i just use it like a plug in play device or do i need other mods to work it. i got the OAI as recomended. thanks

I can't compare them to "regular" 9-3 seats, but my seats are among the most comfortable I have ever sat in!

They are not race seats and there still will be some slipping and sliding, however they are very comfy, and significantly more supportive than regular 9-3 seats. They are a direct swap into your 2000 9-3, no special brackets or any cutting/ welding required.

well i'm not looking for full on race seats just style comfort and less flying onto my girlfriends lap in sharp turns and vice versa. but from what i'v read there expencive even from the junk yard and the only junk yard with a set is in NY i live in lower deleware it's about a 4-6 hour trip oneway and thats just to the state line.

What were the mixed reviews saying? Reliability isn't going to take much of a hit from a stage 1ish tune. All the **** that breaks on my car isn't because it's pushed, they're just maintenance items. If a car is taken care of properly, reliability and speed don't have to be mutually exclusive.

And a tuned ECU is not a special device, it's a stock ECU that is reprogrammed so all you have to do is remove and replace it. What is your goal for the car?

i Drive alot on the highway and people hear the diverter valve after some stop and go and when traffic is all cleared up someone wants to race and rev and all that good stuff next to me(this happens atleast 3-7 times a week depending on days and weather) but i have no problem throwing it in 4th at 50-65 mph and smoking any car/truck that isn's to modded but resently with happened with a i'm assuming mostly stock subaru wrx( I don't think it was an sti) but i kept up with it for just under a quarter mile. i want to beable to drive around with out feathering the clutch to leave the driveway but keep my rpms runing like i was going form 2nd-3rd gear but when i'm going from 4th-5th. you get what i'm saying i know thats alot to read but i was trying to think of the best way to say it haha.
