GMP Performance - Special offer on Recaro Sportster CS and Cross Sportster!

We are excited to extend a special bonus offer to forum members on the Recaro Sportster CS and Cross Sportster Seats!

Please PM or Email for best pricing!!!

This is for forum members only and will not be listed on our website! Please PM us or email adam@gmpperformance.com for details if you are interested.


Sportster CS in an E92:


Black Sportster CS:


Cross Sportster: (Much lower side bolsters for easier every day use)


The RECARO Sportster CS seat is modeled after the design aesthetics of world-class racing seats, but it’s all street legal. The integrated headrest with belt pass-throughs, aggressively bolstered shoulder, back and thigh areas and sleek cover designs make Speed the ultimate in a “street legal” performance seat.

RECARO Ergonomics: Each Recaro seat is designed to support the natural S curve of the spine. The human body isn’t designed for long periods of sitting. Recaro seats are designed to align the spinal cord in its most natural and healthy position. Your back muscles will actually become more relaxed the longer you sit in the seat.

Ultra Thin Reinforced Fiber Backrest: Sleek molded backrest offers superior ergonomics, unique styling and interior space savings.

Integrated Lumber Support: Proper lumbar support is an integral part of the comfort of an automotive seat. RECARO’s proprietary lumbar support technology provides superior comfort and support.

Bearing Mounted Seat Cushion: Built-in shock absorbing system ads unbelievable comfort.

Shoulder, Back and Thigh Bolsters: Driving in a RECARO seat isn’t all about correct sitting, it’s about performance too. The pronounced shoulder, back and thigh bolsters will keep you firmly in place under the most aggressive driving situations.

Adjustable Backrest: Easy manual dial mechanism moves the backrest into the correct and comfortable driving position.

Integrated Head Rest: Integrated headrest is designed with belt pass-throughs for 4 point belt harnesses for a sport appearance.

Built-in Adaptor: Seat adaptors are built into the seat to giving the seat an authentic racing seat look.

Seat Back Release: The seat back release is integrated into the belt pass-through area for a clean look. Moves the backrest forward for easy access to the rear seat compartment.

High Quality Foam Padding: The entire seat is lined with thick, dense high quality foam, adding to seats sport feel and ensuring long lasting support.

Upholstery: RECARO chooses the best materials for its covers and then sews them with precision, assuring the seat will look great for years.

Different color options from Recaro:
Blue:

Red:


Silver:


NOTE- Seat Brackets are designed in Germany for the factory seats in European models(which mostly have manual seats, not power). US models tend to have more options on their seats and may need to be modified depending on the seat options. Here is a link to a recent in-house install that retained all motor functions of the stock seats by separating the brackets to reuse the motors and building a new wiring harness to run the seats and keep away airbag warnings.

Please click on the pictures for more details. This offer is for forum members only so please PM or email adam@gmpperformance for pricing and availability!

Just so everyone is aware, for the E92 pictured we were able to convert the seat to power (forward and back)

Link to the full custom installation:




The seats in the M3 are a whole lot of function in quite a few ways. Our customer knew that he wanted a racing seat but did not want to lose the normal luxury of the BMW factory power seats. Our solution was simple; turn the Recaro Sportster seats into power seats by adding power sliders. In order to do this a set of factory M3 electric seat sliders were sourced in to replace the provided sliders from Recaro. With those off the seat it was time to start building the brackets to attach them to the Recaros. One of the issues that we wanted to make sure to be aware of was height, when building the brackets constant fitting was required to make sure the seat did not rise to high. In the end with the newly built brackets the overall height ended up being just a tad lower than the factory seats and, with the M3 spending time on the track, it allows more head room for a helmet. After the seats were able to be bolted into place the next step was to add a switch to control the movement of the seat. Since we were using factory power sliders it only made since to use factory harnesses as well in order to keep a clean O.E. look. A few other modifications were made during the wiring process in order to deal with an air bag light by transferring the occupancy sensors over to the Recaros. With all the wiring finished the seats were bolted into place, plugged in to the factory connectors and put to work.
