Status Gets some Local Love

This is a local Arizona boy who’s into the bimmer scene and wanted more! So he updated his e36 with a set of Status Racing GT-X seats with black cloth. Now, he’s not only catchin’ looks for the outside, but the inside too. His BBS’s are nice, but every BMW in the scene has a set of wheels. Not everyone has a bad ass set of racing seats.  The GT-X is our latest seat back to get FIA approved, for those of us who use our car as a daily and like to race on the weekends. The GT-X has enough room to be comfortable, but fits snug when you need the extra security.

Let us know what you think of his setup in the comment section below or on Facebook, Twitter @thestatusracing or Instagram. Thinking about getting your own setup? Check out our seat configurator and make your own set of Icons or find out where to buy HERE.

Last Set of Hockenheim Seats Installed

For those Status veterans, you know about the Hockenheim Seats. For you Status Newbies, the Hockenheim was made specifically for more narrow cars like the NSX, S2000, and FD RX7’s. With only 21″ to put an entire butt, the narrow seats, seemed like a good idea, but functionally were only made for life-size stick figures. For those of us with meat on our bones, we only dreamed of one day losing a limb to fit in these babies. So with that, we discontinued the seats and branched out into larger seat bases and colored carbon seats.

The discontinuation of the Hockenheim, like a lot of products, only raised it’s popularity. This customer is the last person to buy a set of our Hockenheim seats. He’s basically the owner of a Status unicorn. He was nice enough to send us pictures of these mythical seats. Let us know what you think. Are you going to miss the Hockenheim?

Update from a Sponsored Subie with “Baller” Interior

This is a 2011 Subaru we sponsored. He got back to us after entering a Subiefest last month. This is what he had to say about the reactions he got from the seats.

“Subiefest was a success! I was able to get Best 2011+ Subaru class. Everyone who passed by the car were in awe with the seats. They really made my interior pop. A lot of my competition was shocked how “baller” my setup was.”

That has to be the number one comment we get from our seats, they make the interior of any car pop. Even if the seats are a standard set of rings with FRP backing, it makes the interior just as impressive as the exterior. If you want to take it to the next level we suggest getting a set of Status Spa Seats that recline and have carbon backing or a set of Status Icon seats that fulfill any of your custom needs. Whether you want to change the fabric option, stitching color or backing, we can make the custom seat of your dreams.

Don’t be normal… Update your Status!
