Cheaper budget seats are not DOT tested and are less likely to protect you if you are in a wreck. More expensive seats; sparko;bride; both are DOT tested and are going to be much safer in a wreck.These are the ones that I recommend and also the ones I plan on buying for my own car:http://jhpusa.com/store/pc/viewPrd.a...idproduct=3719

you want a good seat thats going to last try spending the extra money on something better. those seats are not racing seats.....try looking for something thats SFI approved. also try looking for recarro, sparco, simpson...any of those are actual manu of good high quality seats.....i turned my old sparco into a office chair

Keep in mind that your Prelude, unless you have done something really extraordinary to it, is worth maybe three grand on a dealer's lot, and you might be able to seel it, if it is in really mint condition, for maybe $2500. Think hard about putting the kind of money into it that really good seats will cost you.On the other hand, if it is all customized and tricked up, it could be a reasonable investment.
