Want a Free Pair of STÄTUS Seats?

People approach us on a daily basis asking us to sponsor their car and give them a free set of STÄTUS seats, in return, they will send us pictures, get us press, etc. When Vivid Racing first partnered with us, this was how we got our seats in a lot of really cool cars. After a while people only came to us for free seats, and then a lot of time, wouldn’t hold up their end of the bargain. Our goal was to figure out a mutually beneficial program to get STÄTUS seats to people who want to them, but don’t have the money right now. That’s when we came up with this new STÄTUS Racing Seat sponsorship program.

Starting today, any individual can earn a set of free standard (FRP/cloth) ring seats after they sell 5 seats at the retail price. If you want to upgrade your free set of seats, you will have to pay for the individual upgrades (i.e. icon features, different seat style, etc.) on your own. This means a pair of seats that would have cost you around $1,400, will now be free or, only cost you the price of the upgrades.

What’s the difference in STÄTUS seats and materials?

New Color Carbon and Hexagonal Backing

A couple weeks ago we announced that we have a new backing available, and would be releasing more backs and other pictures of the hexagonal backing. Our first seat came out of production with the new backing and it looks sick! We are so excited to offer not only our FRP and carbon backing but now a colored carbon and a hexagonal designed backs. The hexagonal backing looks so unique and aggressive on the seat, we can’t wait to see the red carbon on an actual seat. It’s going to give your car that pop of color that no other car has. We are the only one’s on the market offering this range of customization options and this many different types of backing. Once these seats make their way to us, we will be releasing install pictures that will make you melt.

These seats are no joke, if you want to step your game up and be a real STÄTUS symbol, email sales@statusracing.com and get your custom order in today! We are still taking votes of what car to install the new seat backs in. What car would you like to see the hexagonal and red carbon backing in? Cast your vote in the comment section below or on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

New STÄTUS Video

Here at STÄTUS we get a lot of the same questions from customers and dealers like, what size waist will the Ring fit? What can I customize on my seat? Do you have a seat that reclines? Are any of your seats FIA approved? So, we decided the best way to get this information out to the masses is…. YOUTUBE! This is the first of many videos to come. We wanted to cover a lot of questions, but not make the video too long, so there aren’t specifics about each seats. However, we plan on doing more in depth videos of each of our seats and some one-of-a-kind features we offer.

In order to make these movies information and still interesting we tried to incorporate some cool shots of custom seats. We want to know what you think of this video, was it helpful? Did you already know that information? What information would you like to know? etc. You can leave us a comment below or tell us what you thought on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. We look forward to your feedback and hope to make some epic videos in the future.

Sneak Peek of new STÄTUS backing

The idea behind the name STÄTUS is that every car that has a set of our seats, becomes a STÄTUS symbol. People who buy STÄTUS are trailblazers in the tuning industry. We make our seats completely customizable so you can make your seats, as unique as your car. As we grow, we always push the limits and go to the creative edge to please our customers. Today we are proud to announce that we demolished the limit and leaped over the creative edge. Without further adieu, here is the newest STÄTUS Racing Carbon Fiber backing.

There was some fallout when we announced that we had a limited number of Kevlar seat backs left. What we didn’t make clear, was we were already in the process of upgrading and expanding the different type of backings we offer. We have been looking and testing different styles of fabric. The only way to expand as a company is find out what works and what doesn’t. The kevlar got a lot of hype but not a lot of sales. We hope that if our STÄTUS family likes our new carbon fiber backings, they’ll invest in a set of their own. The seats we sell tell us what people like and don’t like. We are really excited to be the only company to offer such a one-of-a-kind carbon fiber backing.

Agency Power helps STÄTUS get into Mercedes C-Class

STÄTUS wants to be in every performance and car enthusiast’s car that we can. This was a goal we weren’t able to  accomplish for the simple fact that one of the most popular performance cars was unequipped to hold STÄTUS seats. Mercedes makes their seats in such a way that the OEM seat-belt buckle is a part of the seat. When you remove the seat, you remove the buckle. STÄTUS, being a company that primarily manufactures seats needed to branch out and partner with someone who was able to design and manufacture a bracket that would accommodate the STÄTUS seat and the Mercedes OEM belt buckle. Our partner in crime Vivid Racing reached out to their friends at Agency Power to assist in the creation of a bracket that would solve the ever prevalent STÄTUS/ Mercedes problem.

Here’s the result of individual companies coming together to solve a mutually troubling problem. These brackets are only for Mercedes C-Class 08-13+, they are not online yet. If you’re interested in making your car official, email sales@statusracing.com. To see your seats before you buy them, head over and test out our state-of-the-art seat configurator. Tell us what you think of the brackets on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram @thestatusracing. Check out a full pictorial install here.

Alpha Series GTR With Stunning Red STÄTUS Seats.

In collaboration with one of our Newest Distributors ACG San Diego and Talmage Goss also with professional photo-shoot done by Ronnie Renaldi Photography this GTR is brought to life helped greatly in part by these striking red STÄTUS Racing Seats. The Phrase Red in Tooth and Claw a reference to the sometimes violent natural world, in which predatory animals unsentimentally cover their teeth and claws with the blood of their prey as they kill and devour them. I think this white Pearl GTR fitted with the Alpha Package and these Red STÄTUS Racing Seats would make quick to dispatch its prey.

Automotive Connoisseur Group San Diego is our newest Distributor. Located in the San Diego area they can service the greater Southern California Area for any of your needs for STÄTUS Racing.
