Default Aftermarket Seats

Has anyone installed aftermarket seats, like Recaro/ Sparco etc. I am looking for brackets and rails options.
Also how to fix the Airbag light.

Thanks!

I have Status Racing seats.

Status provided OPT sliders, Planted floor brackets, and Status side mount brackets.

Airbag light, i have not tried to rewire it to "trick" the system. I tell passengers to use the 6 point harness lol.

I too have Bride Interior..



still haven't fixed the air bag light.. but I noticed in the Bride Japan catalog they have a "side" airbag delete.. it looked like a resistor but I couldn't see it too clearly... needless to say.. my airbag light still flashes!

Easy fix for the airbag light.....Pull the cluster open it up and cover the inside of the lights with electrical tape. Now the light will blink but you wont see it.

BTW: I did the same thing to my sisters IS250 when I installed her LED headlights and she had a blinking AFS light.

There is a resistor with socket that plug into factory airbag harness when I changed by seat on my Impreza. There should be one for Lexus/Toyota.
