I ordered these back in November, but due to a long lead tiime and various delays due to incorrect fixings, I've managed to get them in.

I've still got wiring to sort as regards airbags, seat belt tensioners and seat belt warnings, plus heating installation, but I'm really happy with
a) how they provide support, and
b) just how fabulous they look!

Feast your eyes biggrin

Nice, I’ve got a pair of Nogaros in my 911 - they’re more comfortable for me than the standard seats thumbup

Just to wrap up, I fitted the heating elements, resistors for airbags, seat belt tensioners, seatbelt warnings and passenger seat occupancy sensor bypass and got the airbag light put out by my TVR mechanic (after I had to start up with one seat out - something to note as a DO NOT DO if you have anything SRS related disconnected, even temporarily.

The seats are lovely and sit really low - so low that the centre armrest is right in the way of your elbow when changing gear. It can be left flipped up all the time but that hinders access to the large storage area behind the seats for coats and the like. I may have a look at removing that.

Wife happy that seat heating is unaffected from OEM items - something I worried about due to thickness of pads. So all good. Must stop modding now!

Yea ......no, its a mini, that's not gonna happen.
Nice seats, would like something more supportive in my R56, but would have to be tiltable, and as yours heated, can't be without that feature now.

Suit you sir. Maybe some nice red stitching? Reclining and available with heating and lumbar.

That's another thing I added retrospeciviely actually - inflatable lumbar support bags whilst putting the heating elements in and they have helped just to give the lower back a little more support.

The seats are Cobra Misanos that GaryF has posted - I had a pair in a previous 911 & they were so much more comfortable than the OEM seats.

MrC, that's two sets of different Cobras in two different 911s - good work. Which were more comfy / supportive?

I went for the Nogaros but almost went for the Misano initially as they reclined and I was worried about the lack of adjustment with the fixed bucket Nogaro. Luckily I am getting on fine with them in their most tilted back position (via the mounting holes in the side mounts). I am quite lean and the shoulder support is actually quite tight so I fear that larger-shouldered drivers may have an issue..

Both seats look really good though and fair play to Cobra for producing them.

My Nogaros are also slightly tilted back too. The Nogaros are definitely more "sports" focused vs the Misanos being a slightly more "tourer" type seat though the Nogaros centre sections can be easily changed if you decide to change the appearance slightly (I've now both leather & separate alcantara covered centres) or want to add some extra cushioning. I decided with my latest 911 that I wasn't going to use the rear seats in my car & hence liked the fixed backrest position of the Nogaros - I've done a good day's driving with them with no issues & the only downside is that I've mounted them as low as they'll go so getting in/out can be fun on say a ferry (that could be an emerging age thing though biggrin )

Here’s my seats with the alcantara centres and matching Porsche leather....

Indeed they do. Good cutomisation options with the Cobras. Enjoy!
