Here it is again. Not sure why it didn't pull you straight to the site but it's called "ebay racing seats". There's a guy saying how he got these seats to fit his factory mounts.

Wiring should be able to be added to without too much difficulty if you're driving a 2011-2013 car. I was going to use an airbag sim with the seat to avoid any unanticipated problems there. It's a beautiful seat, factory new condition.
Hey Eric did you ever hook up these seats?

Nope, it's still sitting like a hangar queen in my garage. I just haven't had the motivation to trade/sell it yet. BTW, I only have the driver's side, no passenger.

Looks to be just generic seats, and generic mounts. I think most folks are looking for something tried and true direct fits. But that’s just me.
