    Need help on F430/360 racing seat sizes

    i have to spec my F430 in the next couple of days... and i'm still unsure about the racing seats -- they are available in sizes "M" and "L".

    i'm 1.88m (6'2") and more of a david bowie-shaped person than an arnie-lookalike.

    my dealer recommends "L" but from other sources i heard that the "L" seat is wider and makes no difference regarding the driver's height. it's more for muscular or corpulent people.

    i'd appreciate any experiences/recommendations!

    Re: Need help on F430/360 racing seat sizes

    The L is still pretty narrow by most standards. I'm 5'10", 175, and they fit snug. If you go to FChat and search, someone posted the actual seat dimensions a while ago.

    I took M, and I'm 174cm high, ... dealer first recommended L, but the next week he recommended M,
    race seats need to fit !
    It's only 1 cm differance, but from M to S it's also 1 cm,
    I can tell you more at the end of next week, when they deliver my 430
    If they don't fit, ... I think I need to lose some weight (but I'm lucky to be the owner of a fitness center ...)

    hmm 188cm, make your lenght pretty high to fit into a Ferrari, doesn't it, ... I think you really NEED these racing seat, because with normal seats, I think our height would be a problem ..

    How long did it take from the time you placed your order until delivery? I order mine almost two months ago and it is still in stage 10 which means they are assembling all the materials to build the car. Apparently they are dragging their feet on US orders because of the lousy exchange rate.

    larges will be much easier to resell the car with.

    Re: Need help on F430/360 racing seat sizes

    "L" will it be!
