Sorry no OEM CRT parts at this moment but we are working on it

GTS Exhaust is nice but we are trying to make this car as light as possible so GT4 system was number one choice.

We are using OEM GTS mounts/sliders ... We actually just today got the passenger side in to test fit and it fits pretty well!

I'll post pics on Monday.

The GTS seat is a Profi XL and I can get that from a vendor too..
That wasn't my question.
I wanted to know the actual differences, if there are any i.e shape, design, material, adjustability, etc.

From your original post I already knew there was a difference.
In your op you already distinguished that oem and regular recaro were not the same hence your question, so why would I ask you the same question?
Clearly I was asking you the differences in the actual items itself and what separates them apart and why one would be more beneficial over the other. And since you don't even know the differences why would you even care, for all you know they're the same.....

Are you using a pair of OEM GTS spacers up front to clear room for the updated suspension?

If you are, are you able to source more? I have a pair, but would like another.

Lol I'm not trying to stir shit up. I simply asked you a question based on the question you asked assuming you had knowledge thus the reason for your question.
You asked whether they were going to use oem or recaro mounts. I asked what the difference was and you replied twice with one is recaro and the other is oem......
