Very nice for a track car....

Certainly not for a street car though, even though it looks cool

The recaro's that recline are actually perfect for street use and more anatomically correct than stock seats. For this reason many car manufacturers use Recaro seats as a top of the line option

I dailied a pole position in my S2000. It was only tricky because the car was so low to the ground. With this being leather and a little higher up, I'd totally consider doing it in the M. This seat was sooo comfortable. I'm a 36 waist and 6' 3" and fit like a dream.

Brandon, where is your shop and how much would a pair of black leathers run installed?

cool seat, I just wouldn't go with it unless I was doing a lot of track driving and only weekend street driving in the car. Not my choice if you use the car more as a DD or go on long trips

I'd have to disagree, I've driven many long trips (Bimmerfest, Vegas, etc.) with Pole Positions and have never been uncomfortable. The seats simply make an already fun car a blast to drive.

You're correct - the backseats are a ***** to get into, but we're planning a rear seat delete to be installed in the near future to shed the extra weight anyway. It's rare even with the stock seats the car ever saw more than 2 people in it.

Maybe I've never driven a long trip in them so I'm really not sure, this was just based on my research I've done on the seats...

Losing the backseat in combo with this upgrade is a sweet deal for shedding weight. Combine this with a light weight battery and you'll shed a ton of weight off this car.

Absolutely - Here's a quick rundown:

Stock BMW Seat: 55lbs
Rear Seats: 45lbs
Subtotal: 155lbs

Recaro Pole Position (each): 19lb
Seat Hardware (each: floormounts, sliders): 5lbs
Rear Seats removed: -45lbs

Total weight saved: 107lbs

Couple this with a lightweight battery/tray setup and you can shed 150lbs off your total weight within in a few hours.

Can you match indianapolis red interior on an M6? If it feels/smells like OEM, I'm in.

Possibly, I will need to have a sample here as we don't get many M6s coming in through the doors.

That's a matter of opinion up to the end user.

Do they make the car more fun to drive? Yes.

You'll also notice yourself using less effort to stabilize your body on the dead pedal since you're locked into position.

I find the pole positions a lot more comfortable than the stock seats. Obviously I am no longer fiddling around with the electronics to make my back feel better

After long trips or a whole day at the track my back is a lot happier with me for not being in the stock seats

Rear Seat delete is still some time away, but PM me what you're looking for and I'll be happy to look into it - this way we can keep the thread showroom related.
