Hello, I am wanting to get a racing seat for my 09 Scion xB. I have found a buddy club seat. First, can I use the stock seats bracket & slider or do I need to get aftermarket parts? & if the stock parts won't work with the racing seat, what bracket should I get? Thanks!
Try the FRS or Tc seats. Both will need some custom fabrication with the brackets. I also noticed that the new Corolla S and rav 4 have pretty sporty seats that seem pretty comfortable. Might be tough finding them used though.
I understand you want a sportier looking seat, me too, but if it is more about comfort you could always just get seats from a 2011+ xb. They changed the seats and from what I hear are much more comfortable. I have no complaints about mine. They would be a straight swap. Still no lumbar adjustment but you could always get an aftermarket one installed.
You might look into the IS350 front seats. I'm sure you would have to do some modification and/or make new brackets, but they would look amazing. You would also gain power adjustments (to my knowledge the xB has never been available in the US with power seats)
Edit: damnit, now I'm looking into this. Not something I had planned on, but...
