      Oh yeah, I got confused cause his stock seats had alcantara (and the R badge).

      later he posted that he bought the Recaro Sportster CS, the same ones I posted about. And he's putting 4 of them in the car.

      From page 1 of his thread:

      They are nice seats, and here in the UK easy to get fairly cheap as they are OEM upgrades in most hot hatches over here; Renault Sport Clio, Ford Focus RS, Mini Cooper S JCW etc.

      Would definitely recommend if you cannot stretch to the R's.

      Thanks for the input, I think this is a more affordable solution to getting some Recaros in our R's maybe we should do a group buy of these

      If we go that route I already have a contact from previouslly buying some sparcos. I will have him run numbers on recaros and sparcos if you guys want.

      He was able to knock off quite a bit from the listed "retail" prices on a Pro2000 and Evo2 for me and that was just 2 seats I know he would hook us up



      Would need to see that red in person - maybe a match to TR R

      What about the seat belt recepticle though when going with these?

      In "STi" land the US spec seats are utter crap which makes the spend somewhat justifiable. That really isn't the case for the GTI/R so I don't quite get why someone would go this route given the cost? Sure is baller though...

      I want to pay $4700 to someone for these seats but I don't know where to go. BKS have the best price I've found advertised online at $5500. I would order at around the $5000 mark if I can find that price.

      How do you think our current front seats could be sold for? $1,500 to $2,000?

      That would cut the Price of the Euro seats in half.

      I'd bet they're worth more like $1000, since they're just GTI leather seats.

      Honestly guys, is this a Euro-inferiority complex? The OEM R seats are AWESOME! Why do they need to be changed unless you're making a track car. Just curious... don't hate.

      I agree... It is a lot of money for my butt.. More exclusivity as there probably not many around here in Vancouver and mine will be the only ones in Recaros!

      Hey Nasty Habbit, Remember me? I had that GLI for sale? I can these seats directly from Recaro. They typically don't stock them but I can place a special order for as many as I have orders for and they will all be shipped free to me and I have extremely great shipping rates to anywhere in the world. If anyone is interested I can do a group buy for you guys on these. They come in many different fabric options. Also I can have each seat have the R logo stitched in any color you want just like you see here.



      If enough are interested I can post pricing.

      If we could get those in blue stitching and the correct R logo I'd probably have to retract my previous statement and buy the hell out of them.
