about ~45lb savings over stock, including hardware. BMW Performance seats are only a 2lb difference from stock seats.

Recaro has a Vinyl/Dinamica Red/Black option, we've installed these in the past:



Unfortunately, the Sportster CS is not included in Recaro's S08 program (custom build), so there isn't much in red other than what's pictured above.

Good to know Roman. I also loved the way your exhaust sounds. How much does it weigh compared to an Akra slip on? Thx.

Are there any settings needed to counter the lack of airbag on the Recaros?

Coding was required, which was performed here.

Looks fantastic Roman. I'd only consider a two-piece muffler (that shows the LSD). Do you have a price yet on the exhaust? And do you know when it will be ready to order? I love the sound from your clip and recommended it to another member as he purchased a catless x-pipe but it sounded bad with the stock "exhaust mod" mufflers. I think yours would sound much better and looks like it would save a lot of weight as well.

it doesn't come in DCT, being that it's not part of the LRP package...but dealers were free to configure their LRP editions with certain options of their choosing. DCT, of course, being one of those.

The Sportsters look great, but how do they fit compared to a traditional Recaro motorsport seat (i.e. Profi or Pole Position)?

I have never run a Profi or PP Recaro so I cannot compare but the Sportster fits the car perfectly. Factory seatbelt postition and overall seat position is very good, this was one of my concerns as the car is used for daily driving often.

Roman. Are you still satisfied with your m3 color choice now that you had it for a while? I have heard people comment that driving an orange m3 calls for a lot of attention, what's your feedback on this ?

I love it I had two black M3's before this one and I would not change the color for anything. I think FO is a great color for this car.
