I just think the houndstooth looks so dated and ghetto. The Recaro seats are cool, but the fabric color is terrible.

I'd hold out and find a nice black or beige sport interior. I don't think you can really improve over the comfort and look of the OE sport seats.

My old interior:

I think this looks great as is, but if the door cards and everything else but the seats were changed to black, it would be perfect.

You are the first person to dislike it. The pics don't do it justice.

To each their own.

The seats themselves look great, but if they said recaro one more time I would start charging them for ad space. I didn't mean to insult. The same interior sans advertising would make my jaw drop.

Also that rear seat looks just like a vert rear seat.

Yeah, I have to agree. A little too much Recaro, but I didn't do it, I got the car that way, and I'll get over the fact that they say Recaro a few too many times.

how about mk2's trophy recaros? they're durable, looks great, and you can match the interior with black doorcards.

Are those just stock sport seats reupholstered to say recaro? I thought Recaro didn't even make the stock sport seats?

Either way back on topic, I would go with the Recaros over the Houndstooth.
