Anyone know of anywhere in the North East area that has a decent selection of bucket seats that I could try out for size?

I'm swaying towards cobra suzukas, but don't want to jump in without trying first

I've a pair of Suzuka's.

The best thing about them is the fact I've now limited my passenger market. Children will fit in fine, so some may say they are a brilliant purchase.

Although to be honest they hug me and that's my main concern. I'd rather that than have a pair of loose seats for the odd occasion I may take a fat mate out.

    Without being rude, are you a fat bas**rd?

    I had a pair of Monaco's and they may as well be a one size fits most seat as a fat person could still sit in it and flange over the sides if required.

    With the Suzuka seats, they are very high at the sides so if you aren't shy around the buffet then you simply will not fit in at all.

    Well I'm 6'4" and reasonably broad, so not exactly child sized.

    This is why I need a selection to try

    I'm a 34" waist and there's not much room for thick garments.

    I'm a 34" waist but there are so many variables that I wouldn't buy a pair on that basis.

    Ideally I want a place to try cobra suzukas, corbeau pro series, sparco evo (2plus), or similar
