BRIDE EURO II SEATS.

Anything to make your '2 look unique

BRIDE EURO II SEATS.

Postby simontan75 » Thu Nov 16, 2006 8:49 am

Just got myself the new Bride Euro II seats. These are the cross between racing and street seats, and are ergonomically designed. The design is very similar to the GTR seats especially those from R34 Skylines. I opted the black fabric ones since they are available in the shop. I'm gonna leather up to baige anyway, so doesn't matter what colour they are.

Image

In order to use these seats, you either need to modify your existing seat rails or purchase the Bride ones. Only one type of seat rail is available for this. It's the YO type. DON'T GET THE MO TYPE RAILS MEANT FOR THE ERGO II, THEY DON'T FIT!! ASK ME HOW I KNOW!!

Image

These rails will slightly lower the seats. I haven't gotten to measure how much they are lowered, but I know it's minimal.

These seats are more comfortable at the side than the ERGO II since the sides at waist level are a liltte wider. THe ERGO II is slightly more hugging. But for long hours of driving, I feel the EURO II are better. The shoulder supports for EURO II are wider, flanged to the side a little more. For bigger builts like you UK lots, you should feel better in these seats. The downside to the Euro II and ERGO II is they don't have lumber support.

I'll post some photos of the seats in my car tomorrow when the lights is better.

I've just recently ordered the Bride GIAS seats myself (but I'm not a lard arse like some of the fatty bums driving MR2's ;) )

They do offer leather option. However, this seat is not currently been updated in Bride's international websites. But I'm sure the UK agents are able to source them if you enquire.

If you need any additional info, goto Bride Japan @ http://www.bride-jp.com Use Google's translator if you have to.

Simon, have you fitted these yet?

I only ask as with car presently stripped right down (no seats, centre console or dash) I was looking at the wires that plug to the under side of the stock seats

on some cars they are just used for the seat belt warning lights, but on others they form part of the airbag circuit, with each airbag only being operational if the seat is in use?

I think on the 'two' they are only seat belt circuits but wanted to check before removing them?

Perry, I've fitted these 2 months ago. No airbag circuit, just seat belt warning signals. However, once aftermarket seats are installed, they will not be able to detect presence of passengers, since the occupant detection sensors are located in the stock seats. Therefore whether or not there's a person sitting on the seat, the fastern seatbelt sign will still flash UNLESS you buckle up the seat belts.

I heard it's possible to relocate the sensors into aftermarktet seats, but Ive not done that. Most of my mates just deactivate the signals so they are no longer flashing.

BTW, I think the SRS will only be activated when the seat belt is buckled up which complete an electrical loop that triggers it. BUt I'm not sure on that. Do you want me to check the BGB for you?

UPDATE: Just checked, the SRS sensor is located behind the cupholder/ciggy lighter unit. It is not connected in anyway to the seats.

i agree Simon, and apart from that the electrical connection on the seat with it buckled up and an arse on the seat is Open Circuit, so thats the same as leaving it disconnected anyway

I swear one of these days when I'm free up my arse, I'm gonna strip the stock and fit the weight sensors into my Euro. I hate it when the bloody light keeps flashing on me.... Oh... I rather my girlfriend does it instead. :lol:
