Unless you are 100% track junkie, I think the point (and what Recaro does *very* well) is to keep your hips from sliding. If it's not wide enough at the shoulders, you'll be unable to get a...

Truthfully, I think the Perrin stubby looks as good, if not better, than the shark fin. I put the smallest one I could find on my car (2") and have been plenty happy with it. My main concern was...

Iron maiden, because of the seats.

I am still convinced FR-S stands for "f*#%ing rotten seats" or perhaps "find Recaros soon". Installing the Recaros in my car totally changed it for the better.
