    The matrix is cheaper by $50 but it's vinyl. The Summit is a bit more expensive but it is simulated leather. Isn't it the same as vinyl? I don't know. The price really doesn't matter much but I like both of them. Which one would you choose? Only thing holding me back from ordering the Summit ones are the damn low thigh bolsters. I'm not too crazy about the white matrix logoeither, so they both have something I don't like. After looking at them side by side, the matrix does look more 'racey' than the summit, tho.

    Matrix really put the sport in these sport seats. They feature: A strong tubular steel frame; high-density foam padding; integrated shoulder, kidney, and thigh bolsters; cutouts for race-style harnesses; and a fully adjustable seatback. The sport seats have fabric upholstery with vinyl patches in high-wear areas.

    These Summit sport seats deliver the look of expensive leather racing seats, without their expensive price tag. These seats have soft, comfortable, simulated leather upholstery, lumbar and shoulder bolsters for added support, cutouts for safety harnesses, and recline and tilt forward mechanisms. Adjustable sliders are included

    Here is my thread about these recaro Knocks off i found on Ebay. They really do look exactly like recaros and is a very good and inexpensive knock off. You can get them in REAL leather in another auction for around $500.....The Simulated leather ones were around $200

    IMO both of the seats you were looking at looked Pep-Boys cheap and super ricer.....But thats just my opinion...These would look really good and classy and are one solid color

    Have you sat in a tubular frame seat before?
    Uncomfortable as hell.

    id say save up your money and get some good quality seats. the summits may be good quality iono but they dont look amazing. id say get some of the ebay ones for money saving or just get some corbeau/recaro's. ;)

    I know what you guys mean but those seats are CRAZY expensive. I really wanted to have some black/red seats since my car is red with black top. Summit has all black seats and are about $200 a piece, it ain't bad, but I realy wanted a red/black combo.
