I'm 6ft 175lbs and have run the following seats:

Sparco:

Circuit 2: One the best fitting of the seats I've run if you're okay with a halo, fits pretty tight and has similar bolster support to the Evo.

Evo S: Slightly tight but had a great balance of bolster support & comfort if you're driving on the street at all. I think a standard Evo would be perfect.

QRT-R: Pretty similar to the Evo but the bolster side support isn't as tall as I'd like.... Only noticed this after sitting in a Pro2000 (plan on switching to the Pro2000 soon).

Grid - lower bolsters but solid shoulder support. It's way too wide for my waist though (I run it as a passenger seat to accommodate bigger folks). Seems like a great option for anyone a bit more hefty than me. (36+ waist)

tightening the inboard rear bolt is a real treat as well.
so EVO XL fit but QRT XL doesn't? lol

I've been trying to verify this for like a month hahah. cause I assumed the QRT replaced the evo?

i don't know anything about the qrt replacing the evo XL, but the QRT-c is going to be made in a larger size in full carbon.

Trying to figure out what seat rails work with Edirb 023s I picked up.. I've bought a set of Bride RO rails specific to the E92 that come with the mounts, rails and seat belt anchor but looking for something to tide me over while I wait for these to arrive..

They are bottom mount reclineable seats and the dimensions are..
405mm (width) x 260 mm (length) or 345mm (width) x 260 mm (length)

can anyone help me out?
