    Totally different seats my friend.

    The SRi seats were a nice supportive seat, and based on Recaros, maybe even made by them??? Someone will clear that up!

    The GSi seats are TOTALLY different, actually made by Recaro, trimmed in half leather or full leather as an option.

    But to be brutally honest, and im sorry to all the GSi owners.........

    I really dont like them!!!! They are ok to look at, but the comfort of them I find a disgrace!!!!

    My opinion is that the SRi seats were more comfortable :shock:

    I just find it shocking that they are made by Recaro!!!!

    The Recaros I have in mine are a much more comfortable and secure fitting seat,

    also the ones Pete has (the same as in Jody's teg) are much the same.

    All down to personal comfort I suppose, but I would certainly say check them out, you may be surprised.

    Seriously though, find yourself a GSi and have a sit in it.

    It would be interesting to know what you/people think.

    I agree...the sri seats are a lot more supportive and firmer. Both are better than the standard seats by miles though.
