        I just came across a website that was selling those new. I'm sure there are others. You know that, right?



        *Good thread idea BTW*

        Here's a great website, courtesy of Mr. A i believe. http://www.capitalseating.co.uk/ranges.asp?type=s&mid=2

            I'll have to throw some pictures up of my Nardo Black Specialist S seats sometime soon.

            Nice idea.

              Although not 'E30' related, but I had my seats out of the Merkur XR4Ti. There, on the bottom railing, were these manuf. logos stuck to the frames and seat paddings :RECARO

              It was cool, although each seat weighed about 60 lbs!

                  I like those seats. What do the bottoms look like? I'm trying to figure out how to mount mine in my car right now. I made another thread about it actually...

                    My 1989 e30 s52 Touring... this is Betty

                    My 1989 325i vert (sold)...this is Nina

                    My 1991 M5 (sold)... this is Veronica

                      I'll play along... :D

                      Model Name: Recaro Trophy
                      Vehicle Origin: 1988 Volkswagen GTi
                      Brackets/Mounting Method: Standard E30 slider/mounting brackets with custom adapter plates
                      Cost: $250



                      And impatiently waiting to go in my car:



                      My custom mounts will be fabbed up very soon, and I'll be sure to get lots of pics of how I did it. Right now, they are waiting on a new outer bolster foam for each seat, and new suspension webbing for under the seat cushion.

                      And if you need replacement parts, rolls of fabric, new bolsters, just about anything Recaro, this is the place to get it:

                        I thought the Trophy's were the ones with leather bolsters? I could be wrong?

                              They are, but these are Trophys, also.
