Willing to pay cash or part exchange my 18-way fully adjustable, heated, memory hardback sport seats from my 997 turbo and I'll obviously pay the difference based on condition.

New ones cost £8300 (delivered) which i will probably buy in April if I do not find a used set before then.

I got a set for £4500 mate, not PXed, also not fitted yet but can't wait, they look so good, but if you don't track your car it is all about the look and bragging rights, they are a pain getting in an out of !!

That’s a really good price 👍 Are yours original? Why haven’t you fitted them?
I can’t find them used so i’ll have to get them new.

Yep original from a 9k mile car, after all the persuasion to sell etc not sure I want them now to be honest, fun was more in the chase !! one of those mods where you have nothing left to do to the car so you think seats & Carbon. At this point stop !!... So, fitted the drivers seat and its nice once you are seated, but really, a bit ***** !! look lovely, but hardly a must have with a road car.

I have some in my car, and think they are absolutely brilliant.

Mine are heated, so work with the OE seat heating controls, which was a nice bonus.

I’m potentially going to sell, but need to pull my thumbs out to advertise the car. 19.4k miles / 997.2 2S PDK in arctic with black leather.

Out of interest, how much would you want for your existing adaptive seats ?

Hi Nik,

I didn’t think the 997 seats were heated, are yours from a 991? The drivers side seat bolster has some wear so that would need sorting out but rest of the seat and passenger seat are fine so I was thinking about £1K for them.

That is a lot of fanjolies for a place to park your bum. I do cover them but dont think i could pull the trigger if they were in front of me.
If speccing a new car though it would be a no brainer.

To each their own... I would like to get the car to how I would have ordered it from the factory given I am keeping it a while.

Plus...I don't have the liability of carbon ceramic breaks or an M97 engine Very Happy

Apologies, wasnt a criticism. I sat in Isysman' s GT2RS recreation with those seats and they are amazing to sit in.
Your point regarding keeping the car for a while is probably the reason why I flinch at it. This year will see what direction I take in terms of change of car or stay and create a 997 version of the 911R, which would then require these seats, recovered in cocoa and hounds tooth fabric inserts. Question
Too many choices

No worries I did not take it that way thumbsup

I know it is allot to spend and took me a while to "talk myself into it" especially given how comfortable the sport seats are but I love the look of them.

I actually blame isysman and another forum member AdeD for this Smile

A 997 911R would be pretty cool, a bit like the CSR cars RPM do?

Essentially it would mean lowering to GT3 height along with cantrelock conversion with GT3 wheels. Along with GT3 front and rear bars I would need to source the GT3 conversion for the centre exhaust.
Interior wise I would only need the seats and the 991 steering wheel as I already have cocoa interior.
It sounds simple enough but it's a 30k plus proposition, so to do it means it's a keeper for a looooooonnnnggggg time.
This wouldn't address my burning desire for a 997.2 GT3 OR RS. Then looking at the RS pricepoimt you enter 458 Territory, so the mind begins to spin like crazy as to what the best option is.
Thankfully I'm 4/5ths the way through an effective new build so spending money on building materials is taking priority.

It is indeed a slippery slope, the stock brakes are pretty darn good though, you shouldn't need to upgrade them for the 9e28.

I think you are right for a normal 9e28 but I am going to run their race fuel map too which takes the times to low 20's Smile

I run 0-300kmph in 21secs (possibly better soon Cool ) on pump fuel and stock brakes are fine, even from 210mph Wink
