As far as I know, there are no bolt on seat rails or hub adapter available. You should be able to modify a set of rails to fit as it's a fairly standard setup (4 bolts at each corner of the OEM seat rail).

You do know that removing an airbag is illegal and in the event of a crash that would deploy the bags, you could be in deep trouble? Especially if you have bags in the seats and your passenger is injured.

This. Plus even if you don't have airbags in the seat, changing the seats can often affect the deployment of the airbag in the column. They design it for the OEM seat only. But whatever you do - don't hack up the seat rail or cheap out on a replacement. Get it professionally done by people who put safety concerns first or don't do it at all. Changing the rails is all well and good until they rip out from the force of a collision and you bounce around the cabin like a ping pong ball because they (or you) butchered it up or got a 5 dollar Chinese rail made out of tinfoil and paper mache.

I'd personally settle for a set of Tiburon seats. OEM and supportive without being over the top. Cloth or leather available. I'd go with cloth, I hate leather seats. Burning hot in summer, cold as ice in winter and slippery at all times

And some have side airbags.

Yummy.

I'm almost positive that someone on this forum at some point put in Tiburon seats, but I know for SURE that someone put in some Acura ones. Problem is, I can't remember enough of those threads to see if it was a direct swap. I believe it was, but I'm sure as heck not going to buy a salvage seat for 300 bucks just to see if may or may not swap.
