      im guessing its french and i would pronounce it "core-bow" bow as in bow and arrow. could be wrong. im very serious about getting the gts-II as well. wide enough for my 35" waist and you can get them in black leather with suede insert! for almost the price of one recaro with bracket. and they look period correct for the e30. hopefully in the next 6 months or so.

        werd, i can't wait to see the leather and vinyl samples. i will likely go with the leather and insert my heated seat elements from the e30.

              after some research, i think i may actually get stockers reupholstered with heat seat elements to keep my buns toasty.

                    I have recaro pole positions SPG's, but i'm not using the stock brackets. I'm using brackets from a very cool dude names Uwe from england. the seats are mounted about 1/2 height in the brackets as all the way down was just too low!

                    here are some recent pics of the current configuration.

                        Sparco MILANO 2

                        Has anyone put Sparco MILANO 2 seats in there car? I have a cabrio and the front seats are trashed. These Milano are one of the few seats that come in Tan/Beige to match my interior. Any advice would be appreciated.

                          Hey any of you guys seen these seats on ebay? Junk? The add says that they come with a "universal bracket". Even if they are complete junk better than driving around in broken ass old seats. What do you think?

                            I don't think I would go near those ebay seats there. "PVC" leather... aka vinyl. Some people have had great success with knock-off ebay seats, but I just can't do it.

                              I agree about the PVC seats. They look like some sort of candy wrapper. The fabric ones look like they could work if the bracket will bolt up. Thanks for the reply.

                                I think I'm going to ditch the ebay crap and go with something nice. Has anybody put Carbeau A4's in a cabrio before? Seen it done?
