      Hey guys(and girls), wouldn't really say I'm new here, I've been reading the CL for quite some time now. Anyway I did a quick search for this topic and didn't really get anything, so I'm wondering what OEM seats you like the most and why? Be it looks or comfort or both, lets see them. My personal favorites are the '97 Saab 9000 Aero anniversary edition seats.

      The ones that came in the euro cars, or the Euro RS4 has an option for way bad-ass recaros! In any case recaros are sweet.

      The OEM Mk IV GLI seats are actually pretty nice. Sporty but still comfortable.

      Not the best out there by any means, but maybe the best for my car. I love the way Mk2 Recaros fit my skinny ass.

      Not to be a homer, but I really am a fan of the S4 alcantara recaros. Nice blend of style, support, and comfort.

      Porsche GT2 Sport seats.

      Fires are the leading cause of fires.

      I'm torn between what's better::

      The skinny shell-like ultra sporty seats in GT2 and the big sports cars as posted or the far more comfortable executive look of the large seats found in the RS6 and V70Rs as shown.

      Porsche had the right Idea in the 90's by going Recaro. I have to say though I am disappointed with the Z06 interior,felt like they let the pooch go on that one.

      Funny seeing all these ultra aggressive Recaros in here. I'm not sure what determines "best"; but in my book for all day comfort there is battle between the standard Porsche seat they have used for the last 25 years; and a current Saab 9-5.

      Either one is comfortable, supportive, and won't cripple you after 12 hours. Special nod to the S60R/V70R; those are super comfortable but a bit too cushy on a long trip.

      Can't we all agree that the best OEM seats actually come from Recaro?

      This is personal preference more than anything else, but I'd feel like even more of a poseur if my street car with fixed back seats and harnesses had navigation. Can you get the 997 with a delete for this middle section, like some of the 996's had?

      First thing I thought of when I saw this thread. I am biased, given that I bought a 9000 to commute in JUST because I loved those seats so much.

      The 20-way seats BMW puts (optional packages) in the 5 series and X5 are pretty sweet.

      haha I really don't think I'd get old enough to laugh about that if I was the kid
      Anyway I would also like to submit the new CC seats into this heated battle of Recaro products. Well made, supportive and some cool stitching.

      really comfortable seats, and they look good!

      or these seats, i mean the bolsters move when you turn so it keeps your body in the middle of the seat.
