    Hi, is still available? How much is the cost?


      alright, let's play what-did-kronus-get-himself-into

      Julien (bless his heart) picked these up for me from Double 02 Salvage. I'm thinking they're first-gen Recaro Idealseat. giant lower bolsters, big-knob back adjustment. Picked them up for the foam, as under the tatters it's actually almost completely intact.

      couple interesting things - these have tilt levers, and one of them has a weird headrest. anyone know what's up with that?

      they'll be getting a recover and then I guess I'll have to find something cool to put them in.

        ^ This is a fun game

        Wish I knew something about that headrest. Looks pretty weird.

          The right headrest looks like a butt in thong

              I’m willing to bet a Recaro from the mk2 VWs will have a matching headrest to the non-butt thong looking one. And with Juliens help those will look amazing.

                I have a spare non-thong-butt headrest. A whole spare pair of seats actually. Going to be a project...

                      Do any of you guys with recaro expert or specialist dual purpose the car? or even Speed owners.

                      Looking for a set myself, trying to stay period correct but i am concerned about shoulder and leg/thigh support on the track. Obviously bucket seats are the way to go, but the pole positions, speeds and expert/specialist will cost me more/less the same locally in Germany.


                        Hey Guys, just joined this forum because of this Recaro thread. I do not own an E30 but i just picked up a 1989 Nissan Silvia and it had these cool old Recaro seats in it. I was hoping to find more info about the seat and if replacement fabric is available for them. I believe the model is LSB and the fabric says "Renoma Paris" on the back rest. Does anyone have info on these? Thanks in advance.
