C5 Seat Replacements

Hi, all, looking for comments and experience of replacing the stock C5 seats. I'm thinking of doing so in my '04 Coupe. What are the pros and cons? If you changed them, what brand did you go with? I've seen prices for different brands that went from really low to ridiculously high. I realize that I'll lose the power controls but since I set 'em and forget 'em that doesn't seem like a big issue. Thanks for your comments!

I rebuilt my stock seats as Sport seats and love them. I was able to retain the electrical aspects and added the lumbar and side supports for both seats. I had to run the power for the passenger seat but that was easy to do and wired it right into the fuse block as if installed by the factory. Came out Great!!!

Roman, thanks for the reply. How did you add the lumbar and side supports? Can you post a pic? This sounds like a good alternative.
