Seats are looking a bit tired, particularly the usual drivers bolster which needs a repair.

Could obviously get them refurbished, but I like the idea of personalising the car (originality is not as important to me as some) so I'm weighing up the options.

Happy with something simple without electric adjustment.

Suggestions...?

If you were going for a sports set up then I'd fit something like Cobra Misano's or recaro CS, but if you would just like some nice stock seats then the factory sport seats are hard to beat.

Like the look of the cobra Misano, I do have the kids in the back a fair bit so folding is a nice option to have.

Anyone fitted a set?

I also need rear seat access. I've spent the last three years with the dilemma of either installing Misanos or Recaro CS Sportsta, and to be honest I'm erring on the later.

Part of the reason is I'm not sure I like the exposed frames on the Cobras and also they seem to wear quite quickly. Saying that they are a lot cheaper than the Recaro's

If you do go the Cobra route, call the factory to see what stock they have kicking around rather than going straight to a distributer. When I called them they hinted heavily that I could buy a 'faulty' one that they would find a matching one for the passenger side, they also enquired if it would be on a cash sale basis. ..... £400 for the pair was a (if mem serves) suggested price. Only downside would have been I'd needed to have to collect and taken them away that day.
I'm not saying there was any sneaky deal trying to be done here as I'm assuming it was show seats they had kicking around. This was the office I was talking too not some dodgy warehouse fella. I was quite surprised still though.

What Seats are in the car?

My faves are early 993 Sports Seats (Big Bolster), the comfiest and most supportive OEM Seats out there IMO, much better than the Hard Back Sports Seats I had in my 993S.
Unfortunately they are difficult to find at reasonable money.

Standard comfort seats at the moment.

Ditto. Would OEM Hard Backs be an option?

In any colour combination you want but get the pukka Recaro sliders the ones supplied are not as good, also the RS seat belt bracket is a good option.
No tilt, so rear area access is tight. Dimensionally similar to Recaro Pole position and very light. Very good value for a lightweight seat.

I think they're overpriced personally.

Overpriced is an understatement...

Good luck with your decision and be sure to post some pics up once sorted. Thumb

I've just had a look at these and I really like the look of the Recaro C Sportster as a more reasonably priced alternative to the OE hardbacks. (That's my impression anyway but I must admit I don't know what hardbacks are actually selling for now Question)

.......but it seems that the "leather" is actually synthetic i.e. plastic. It's bad enough having plastic seats in the back I don't think I could have them in the front too. nooo It's a real shame, I think I could've been tempted by those.

Recaro Pole Positions in leather for me....

Look good and feel great... Although more road feel over comfort!!

Do not be tempted by Recaro SPG std unless you have a very small posterior, they are available in a wide fitting but the sides are taller than the Pole Positions so getting out with a short skirt on could be interesting.

They do look good.

How far forward will they slide?

How much, if you don't mind me asking?

Hi Gunner,

They slide forward quite far, I have tried to take an image for you but its quite hard to judge the space?! They are big seats and I wouldnt be able to drive with the seat full forward (but I am 6ft 4)....

The issue you will have is with the seat belt, but I guess small kids could go under this?!




If at all possible I would recommend trying to sit in a set before ordering as they are racing bucket seats.... Coming from a couple of Lotus Elises, I knew what to expect and they fit me fine. I have done a couple of long 200mile journeys in them no problem BUT they are not as comfy as OEM of course... but you really do get a lot more road feel and for me it makes the car more sports oriented...

Prices in my post here - but worth searching around in case UK prices have fallen and the £ to the € isn't great at the moment ??!!:

Thanks, slide forward looks like it could work fine.

Hmmmmm...

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.
