Was not aware that they were heavy but I suppose with the airbags in there, they can't be particularly light either.

I agree with both that for the price they are definitely not worth it but I was just making the point that on a street driven car giving up airbags is a risky proposition. Someone should engineer a seat fastening mechanism that allows you to swap the OEM seats for racing seats in a few minutes (not sure if feasable).
