There are a few different companies that make the same seats with different brand names. They are generic ebay seats. 6LE's seats were the same generic ones on ebay, its just that supposedly he had more options/configs on them. If you search threads on here, you'll see identical ones that were from different vendors on ebay.

Chinese knockoffs with different names stitched into them. Since Corbeau changed the LG1 this year you can expect the style on those to change in about 2 years to stay fairly current.

Mark claimed that Yonaka was making adjustments to the position of the seat holes for him so that the seat could sit lower with his brackets. Then his competitor claimed that he emailed Yonaka and that Yonaka didn't make any modifications to their seats prior to shipping.

Thread is here if you feel like being entertained: https://ls1tech.com/forums/appearanc...questions.html

An earlier thread has Mark explaining how even with the OEM seat electronic bracket/slider, the driver side still sits up 2 inches. He has a nice write up on how to use the stock brackets with the Chinese seats here:

https://ls1tech.com/forums/appearanc...ory-rails.html

So it appears that the best solution would be to buy a set without brackets and do the modification with a piece of steel like what Mark originally did in the thread above, but use v6 non power seat bracket if you are 6'1 and taller so that the extra 2 inches caused by the power seat bracket doesn't cause your head to it the roof.

Not sure how drilling holes in a different location on the seat and using 6LE seat brackets with his 6LE seats with the aftermarket sliders is going to result in the seat sitting lower than the Chinese seat with OEM bracket/slider like he originally claimed. What is certain is that the ebay brackets both make the seat sit too high.

More discussion on it:

All this being said, looks like DPTmotorsport has the ones in real leather but only available in red for $350
Sickspeed has them in real black leather but with red diamond stitching that I don't care for $600
NRG only has them in cloth or swede

mad racing, arizen, yonaka.... none of them distribute these seats any longer. Best bet if you want the ones with real black leather that look like the 6LE seats is to wait for DPTmotorsport to restock them for $350 a set in real black leather.

Magg performance has them for $650 but if they were sourcing from Yonaka the obviously had to switch to the main supplier in China that is providing these seats to all these other companies.

Also for the seat belt loop, you can source a leather guitar neck strap with a button on ebay for $2
