Quick update, think I'm going to go for the Recaro CS.

Did see these on eBay though...

Recaro SPG

If only they weren't red backed.


Seat backs are easy painted by a bodyshop.

Recaro's "Ambla Leather" is not real leather, hence they're cheaper. Thumb

Ambla Leather details:

RECARO Ambla Leather
Ambla is a high quality synthetic leather used on many RECARO seats. Ambla is a light grain-textured synthetic leather often used on the bolsters of many OEM and aftermarket RECARO seats.
Available in black.

Does anyone know more accurately than "a lot" how much weight is saved when moving from original sports seats to something like Recaro pp's?

Careful with the SPGs if you are posteriorly enhanced you may never get out. They do a wide version which should give a bit more breathing room.
They have higher sides than the Pole Posotion, all the cushions and covers are interchangeable. I have a pair in the 944, great on track but a bit of a pain getting out, she hates them. I paid £450 for a pair about 3 yrs ago.

Can I ask what made you decide to take the Pole Positions out?? What have you decided to go with instead??
