Subaru Impreza MK1 GC8 Seat Guide

The Impreza MK1 GC8...

The Subaru Impreza 1st generation, is simply a classic which is why it earned its nickname as the Impreza Classic. It’s a car that most drivers would struggle not to love. Since it’s introduction back in the early 1990’s it’s been a track day weapon. The Impreza MK1 GC8 was released in 1992 and was manufactured till the year 2000. This model has a 1.5L EJ15 H4 engine that can be available up to a 2.5L EJ25 H4 engine that has huge potential and can be easily modified to improve performance around a track.  

However, once you start using your Impreza for fast road and track use, you’ll soon realize just how much you need new bucket seats to provide more support. 

On cornering, you may find your self holding onto the steering wheel tighter than usual, tensing your thighs and legs against the central console and/or door card. You’ll probably find your weight shifting in the seat and having to re-position your self after the corner. 

None of this is correct. Your seat should provide the right level of support so that you can grip the steering wheel only for steering, your legs should be supported and your weight shouldn’t shift around. The recommendations we provide are to ensure that you feel comfortable and supported allowing you to focus on the job at hand. 

We’ve worked closely with our customers to create our Subaru Impreza MK1 GC8 guide.
The resulting recommendations are based on previous customer car installations.
