Default Recaro seats??? - 6th October 2016, 07:55 PM

Would luv to know what people thoughts on the Recaros are??? The reason I say this I had Sparco seats in my old R53 JCW and they looked great in fact there the same seats they put in 360 Ferrai how ever they were trully uncomfatable......
But am at the point were my JCW would look awesome with a pair in, I have leather heated ones which are really comfy but not as cool as the Recaros...
Would luv to hear peoples thoughts???

I purchased a 2013 FJCW Mini in June.
I really wanted the Recaro interior and was most annoyed to find, once I had purchased the car, that the seats are mostly vinyl as apposed to leather.
Only a small proportion of the seat face is genuine leather. The sides and back are cheap vinyl.
Not sure if this is down to Mini cost cutting or Recaro.

You will find most car manufacturers do this, most people don't notice.

1000-1200 seems to be normal.

They are a lot of money but so worth it and even though they're getting a bit old now they certainly hold their value. It was a few years ago but I bought some for 1200 and then approx 18 months later resold them for 1100.
