    Default 348 Challenge seats?

    OK, I can't believe I'm posting this but..

    Unfortunately I don't think I can live with the seats in my GTC. They are the original F40 type and I'm just simply too non-Italian in design. The fixed sides give me serious cramp after about an hour in the car pushing into my thighs. So plans for taking the car to Le Mans and further afield would have to to wait until I can sort this out.

    Before anyone screams noooo I'd only take them out and store them somewhere safe then switch them back if I ever sold the car. For now, I love driving the car too much for it to be just a garage queen.

    So, I was thinking that maybe I should try out a set of F348/F355 Challenge seats as they look similar just maybe not quite as hardcore and hopefully? a little wider? As I don't think anyone out there has tried a GTC, has anyone tried an F40 seat and perhaps a Challenge seat? These seats I think were made by OMP, and were an option on the 348 GTC so I'm not totally off base.

    Can anyone help/provide more info? I really need to try the seats before wasting time trying to find them etc but does anyone have a set in their car I can try out for size?
