For those with Recaro's...

Where did you purchase them from? Any leads on CDN dealers?


Thanks!

I started a thread about this a few months back and did a bit of research and I have to recommend Alpha Motorsports. Contact mohammadz on the forum.

Thanks for all the tips!

I'm leaning towards the Recaro Pole Position for myself.....still debating about the passenger seat.

I think I have had ~6 people in the back seat in 4 years. Perhaps I'll go with a Sportster CS for my passengers.

Any feed back about the ones you guys have owned?


And thanks very very much to Matthew for his PM.

Not a problem

imo the two front seats should match. It just looks much cleaner. I dont know how often you have passengers and ones that can handle a bucket so I cant really comment there.

I dont really have feedback of experience because mine arent installed. But I just wanted to comment and say that the leather on the pole positions are top notch and the seat feels great when Im sitting in them.....on my floor

Good luck with your purchase and I sure you wont be disappointed with either decision.

Yeah, the matching thing is in the back of my head too....I love the look of the CS, but it does not really save that much weight versus stock....the Pole Positions do however.....

Wow I thought I had it bad with 6 sets of tires between my old M3 and our 530i..gonna have 2 more sets for the X3. I'm glad I have some external storage

Back on topic, you should look at some ASM Recaro's for a tighter fit...and unqiueness

If you have the space, stack two up, four corners, buy a pane of glass. Voila, coffee table.

Another member was selling a set. I got to say though, it's hard to find all the seats ASM provide because they were always for the Japanese market. The importing Go-tuning only has some pics. Dig deep into google images to find all the models ASM Recaro makes.

Ben! I think many people on this forum can agree with me when I say you are the root of all money pits!!!

damn ust did a quick search on these and theyre crazy. Dont really like the shape or design compared to the plainer pole positions, but I def like the uniqueness.
Some guy had em selling in the forums not to long ago. Pricey and not even leather!

Lol, I'm known to do quite the damage on your bank/wallet if you're a friend

That said, I'm not a huge fan of that combo, but the full Alcantara option, or red/black combo is awesome. Definitely fits our asian structure a bit better, too.
