Regardless of which colour option you go for, once assembled the SL4000 is really quite a sight to behold, closely resembling the sort of seat you'd find in a performance car and as such offering itself temptingly to the racing sim fan. For even more realism you could always remove the arms as they are merely bolted on, but this of course would limit some of the comfort aspects of the chair
Both the base and the squab are reasonably firm and both have supporting side panels. On the squab these do offer a good deal of support, but on the base the lateral supports can be a little restrictive to those with a larger frame. The SL4000 also has a raised centre femoral and pelvic support that is designed to aid leg separation and comfort
The top of the backrest has vents which, on a real seat would be where the harness would secure through the driver. On the SL4000 they are more just for show. Although made of a rigid plastic they do not feel uncomfortable when you're sat in the chair.
The SL4000 also comes with a pair of bolsters. Both are attached by elastic straps and can be moved up and down the chair to gain the best support. The upper bolster is designed to improve neck and head support, where as the lower one is more of a lumbar support
