A. P.iece of C.rap


With the quality of product i've seen from APC i would never trust my life to seats made by them. I've never heard anything particularly terrible about them though; i just have a deep-seated (no pun intended) hatred of the company.

I think it's important to make note that where the products are sold isn't what makes it crap, its the company that makes the product.

partially true..i think that if you wanna buy stuff like intakes..pedals..seat covers..exhaust tips..shift knobs..mostly aftermarket parts.. and other things of that sort you should buy it somewhere else..thigns like that sold at wal mart and autozone sucks..that's why its cheap.

give it a year, and you'll notice you'll have a permanet bed as a driver seat. they dont hold up at all, believe me...ahem my "brother" had a set in "his" honda civic hb awhile back... ok ok ok, i bought a set from apc 5 years ago for my previous HB and they didnt last too long before the "thingy" to make the seats "hold up" start to slowly adjust your seat for you. to make a long opinion short...they're total crap.

race seats have large bolsters to hold you in.

I'm well aware of that but the color of the material makes it look as though it is aimed towards a 3 year old

No. that seat screams cheap even from the small picture. Sparco seats, while not my taste, do have a quality look to them

I bought an APC seat two years ago that I made into an office chair, the fabric is worn down to the cheap foam already - don't buy em!

i was talking just about the color you mentioned.

you can't comment on quality from just looking at that picture. you're seeing apc and passing judgement.

:dhorse:

I have never looked into getting racing seats in my life. I only know of sparco as I hear it all the time. APC could be a top of the line manufacturer for all I know but when I opened this thread and looked at the seat without even reading any of the other comments was it looked like a childs seat-not because of the bolsters but because it had a cheap, plush look to it.

unless he got really lucky from the seller, it wont come with them i dont think. Pretty sure that APC seats (ah yes, i was considering them when i was younger and still new too the scene) come without brackets and you will have to have them custom made.
