      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.

                          I’ve got the Recaro LXC’s and trying to get them into my Vert. Using planted bases, I believe it puts the seat too low which interferes with how narrow the Vert is. The recline wheel is what seems to be the piece interfering.

                          Anyone that has put these in a vert provide guidance on how they fit? Thinking I need to go with Massive Lees adapters which should bring them higher.

                            Does :Lee offer cabrio-specific adapters? If not, you may still have fitment issues, as his E30 brackets are .75" lower in the rear.

                              He has 2 types of adapters. His standard (which I’m guessing is the .75” lower) and his tall which is standard + 1 inch.

                              I’ve worked hard to get these seats and material but have considered getting rid of them and doing air ride. Seems like I can get $2500-3k for seats and $1500-2k for the 1.5-1.75 yards I have if they inner material.
