What happens to the stock seats? Can it be sold? Are there takers? Sorry I am just excited. This would be my first car that I would purchase on my own. Trying to get all the info I can get.
Forget these seats, I got a reply to my request for a lower GB price of $4000 shipped for 6+ sets.
The $4700 shipped is the absolute lowest.
Somebody else needs to take over the quest for a GB on these.
I'm off on preliminary hunt for used TTs at not much more money than the seats.
I've got one kid who will be driving later this year and another next year. I like the idea of putting them in AWD and a 2 seater so they can't pack a car full of teens and do the sh!t I did. OT of course but I'm wondering if there's a flash option on these VAG cars where you can limit the top speed to 70. Sort of the opposite of removing the top speed limiter?
I've got these seats in my MKV R32. I can shed a little light on them if you'd like.
First, I'm not a small person. I'm 6'4" and weigh in around 215-220. I have a *really* bad back problem. I have a locked joint and a pinched nerve in my lower back. This makes sitting for any period of time extremely painful. However, these are some of the only seats I can sit in for more than 30 min and feel no pain at all.
A week after installing them I took the car for a 4 hour round trip drive to a friends house. I experienced almost no pain at all. The seats are supportive and firm in all the right places and soft in all the other right places. They blow the OEM US seats out of the water. Every single person that has sat in them has the same reaction: 'holy ****'
When they arrived they were extremely tightly packed so the bolsters were wrinkled. They've loosed up a bit since.
In the car:
Feel free to let me know if you have any questions. Koma has spent significant time in the seats too and can vouch for how comfortable they are too.
I would not suggest for someone who might be "thicker." These seats are an average to athletic fit. If you have a 42"+ waist I'd say forget it. They're not super tight however. I'm 5'7" and 160lbs with a 32" waist and there was some wiggle room. The most perfect seats I've ever sat in were the Recaros in the RX-8 sport package (for someone my size at least).
I would rock them if I had the money.

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?
