Since I had never driven a Cobra before I decided to take this Maroon '03 out for a spin. I loved 90% of it but I couldn't wait to get out of it because the driver's seat was killing my back! I am 6'4 so I am not a small person and I realize that these are sports seats but come on! I felt like a vice was crushing my internal organs and compressing my spine. 4 hours later my back is still hurting from it. The Mach 1 seats felt snug but after 5 minutes in it I felt very comfortable. I've also been in other sports seats, like in an STi, and didn't experience this in them. If I ever got a Cobra I think my first mod would be to put in a set of Recaros.
