Do those all actually fit in a Solstice? The shoulder width is pretty tight and historically not many aftermarket seats actually fit.

No aftermarket seats will have the sensors. You will have to have them custom installed. A lot of people complain about that. They arent intended to use on the road. Those fixed back fia approved seats are for offroad use most of the time. Usually.made around having a cage and harnesses which will do a lot more then some air bag sensors in most cases. But then the light is on without it

Also that solstice has a cage with scca/nasa approved door bars. He is missing all the interior where the seats would actually hit. Those seats will more then likely hit the door panel which is another thing complained about. The solstice has very narrow seats.

Thanks

I understand that the seat sensor has to be fitted. I asked my question poorly. Has Carid any knowledge about successfully fitting the seat sensor?

My experience is many who buy aftermarket are not racing.

The seats are available in different sizes, so you can check if the model you like actually fits in your car. The specs are available on our website (just use my link in original post) or let me know which model you like and I will gladly post the specs here on the forum.

These are going to rub the door and wear out the material, my seats are 23" wide in the shoulder area(58.5cm) and they do that.
Also the width of the seat at 52cm in the thigh area will be a tight fit since there's only 52cm between the door and the transmission tunnel.
