    If you want good cheap seats, go for a DC2 GSR seat.....cheaper than EG6 ones....no need to modify anything....and same hold as eg6 ones...

    thanks all for the feedback, i'm looking something like a seat that for 2 doors(which means can fold for rear passengers to go in) and soft cushion. i'm not a racer...

    uncomfortable which mean the existing is quite hard..langgar lubang, conform sakit perut..

    Soft cushion? I think DC2 GSR seat, EG6 seat, or even AE92 seat should be nice for you.

    If you're looking for MPV-level comfy seat, then obviously avoid buckets.
    Semi buckets are still not up to the mpv-comfy level also. If want spongy, then you'd probably have to recushion the existing one.

    For me, even the eg6 seats are not soft, but it's a price I pay for driving a lightweight car. A lightweight car can float easily, so I'd rather have a good feel of the road, rather than having a comfy MPV style seat which is comfy, but can't really have a good feel of the road. Kinda depends what kind of comfort level you're looking for. For some, Recaro's are comfy. For me, they are to a reasonable extent, but definitely for people who drive MPV or heavy cars like Bimmers, Mercs, etc, the comfort level is definitely lacking. Personally, I do feel that lightweight cars should never have too comfy (read: soft) seats because they have more tendency to float and/prone to aquaplaning, which makes it important (at least to me) that the driver is able to feel the traction on the road.

    Still, if you swing that way, it's your car.

    Sometimes, backache is caused by the way you sit on the car seat, so try changing posture first. Usually that is more likely a culprit than uncomfy seats. Sometimes I wonder how people can drive their car when the seat is 90 deg straight up.

    For setting seating position, google can probably direct you to a multitude of websites about proper seating position when driving.

    like what shiroi said...recushioning the existing one should be enuff
    and...with leather finishing or...recaro cloth...depends on your own preference
    i dont think eg can be very very comfy...its a low car...not mpv or big sedan car

    but for me..im happy with .recaro semi bucket seat
