So I'm looking at a little budget upgrade for seats in my R32, just wondering if S15 seats would fit in there, whether it's with R32 rails or S15 rails. Other options such as R33 Gtst seats are welcome as I'm in need of seats regardless

R33 GTST seats don't look good in anything.  They go straight into an R32...but they're nearly as old so they seldom look much better.

S15 seats should be able to go in.  At worst, you might need to modify one of the rear mounts.  You do with R34 seats into R32, and S15&R34 are same era.  It's also not as if it is easy to just remove rails from one factory seat and fit them onto another factory seat.  The rails are not really a separate part on most of them.  That's for aftermarket seats.

There are not really any good budget upgrades available any more.  JJR's Bride/Recaro copies are about as cheap as it gets.  Or Sparco R100.   But these option are still >$1k once you have the seats and the rails.  And, without proper tilt/slide, they're not quite legal in a 2 door car either.

The S15 seats are an option because they're pretty cheap, they look better, and better bolstering so they'll hold you more. And if they go right in that's perfect

They will need one of the rear mounting points modified to bolt in as gtsboy mentioned. From memory some minor cutting/extending/welding has to be done.

R33 gtst will go straight in. I have a pair in quite good condition here for cheap if you decide to go that way.

I personally preferred my 32 (later model) seats to my S15 ones...

Definitely found they hugged me better...
