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

Interesting, that is my size as well. Was it snug at all (in a bad way?) I was thinking I would need to get a Profi to get an XL size.

God damn

Better seats makes it look like a totally different car, from the pics of the interior you'd think it was a Ferrari or a Lambo

Agreed - non Sport seats in the 1 are terrible. The Recaros are completely on the other side of the spectrum and really make this car fun to drive.

With the Braille/MS Battery mount installed - we got ~160lbs out of this car while still keeping it civil.

JEALOUS... The day my E90 M3 gets paid off I'm doing this!

You guys take the best shots and make these upgrades nearly impossible to resist.

I'll be at SEMA, where can I meet some of you?

WOOOOOOOWWW

BTW: OEM Recaro > Honda odyssey? No freaking way.. And add C63 to that list of oem recaros. The clk63bs and the c63 have the same seats.

Great seats! We use the pole position in our Time attack car and most builds. It fits people of all sizes, including myself at 6ft 2 and 220 lbs! The head support is proper as well. Wish the time attack car had them in leather tho haha

Quite a bit more than one would think - we've done many road trips with the Pole Positions installed without any ill feeling or discomfort.

Since we're an authorized Recaro partner - those that are local to our facility are always welcome to drop by and try them out in person.

I did One Lap of America 2009 in TC Kline's Carbon Coupe with Pole Positions.

I expected arse fatigue, but was very pleasantly surprised with how well they work on the road, as well as on track!

Can't wait to get some in my E90 after it gets paid off and out of warranty.

hey Tom, I actually have the Sportster CS from my old car at home...besides new brackets(floor mounts) do I need new slide rails? Also, if I only use it on the driver seat for track days do i need the Macht Schnell module?

If you want to avoid the airbag light, the module will need to be to remain in place whenever the Recaro seat is run.
