Need advice on FIA seats.

The two i have in mind are the Cobra Monaco Pro, Or the Clubman

What seat fits the mini best and most comfortable ? Or any other seat brand suggestions.

This is for a MK1 Rally/Targa car with the door bins moved in for cage clearance.

Thanks Dave

I have the Monaco pros and they don't have a lot of padding on the base. I have had to make an extra cushion for each seat

As nick said I would recommend trying them before you buy. It just happens that cobra seats are made where I live so made them the easiest choice

Are you doing stage rallying or road? For road you don't have to have fia seats.
I have cobra clubman seats fitted, they are the comfiest bucket seat I have had. But be care they aren't FIA in case you were looking for stage rallying.

Both Road & some stage. Im in America.

My other seats in my other rally car that are OMP are to wide on the head support.

On my other cars i run a Kirkey 14.5-15 inch wide and im 5-8.

Thanks for the info.
