wellllllll, i got my JDM recaro seats from the 2.5tt R in the other day. i slapped them in and they look pretty good. they are VERY firm and quite comfortable. i wish i was a bit bigger as i don't quite fill them out. my only complaint is that the seats sit WAY higher than the stockers (when all the way down), i'd bet its a good 2" or so.....rather annoying as i have a sunroof....my head almost touches the ceiling. i'll test fit w/a helmet tonite, but i'd bet its a no go. looks like i am cutting them down.....

Or you can just give them to me! :D

Let us know how it goes!

I am interested in picking some up but they are hardly ever in good condition.

Discussed many times, it's about 75lbs...wait a sec, I'll go weigh mine right now...tick toc tick toc...I got 70lbs for drivers and about 40lbs for passenger. Not too accurate though as I was balancing them on a bathroom scale.

no idea why they sit so high....especially considering some Rs came w/a factory sunroof. though i don't know how much that drops the ceiling. my ASC roof has a fairly low ceiling....

I have the Recaros SEs in mine and yes they are very nice seats but I also need to get them lower. I fit but I feel wierd in other Mk3s as mine sit higher. I'm 5'7" 165lbs My car is a Hardtop. My 6'4" friend fits in the pass seat so the sunroof has alot to do with it.
