What do y'all think of the seats on pg7-9 in the new R&S?

Look like Porsche racing seats...

They look just like the Porsche "GT3" seats, which are made by Recaro. Since I can't read the description, I can't tell if they're copies or who makes them. The Porsche/Recaro's are pretty wide at the wings. They use the same shell as the Pole Positions which are ~22.5".

tasty! I wonder if Eddie, Leni or Papa Joe would be interested in importing them?

Less than $1000 each...not cheap but reasonable from what I've seen...

Anyone translate the page yet to get the weights, dimensions, etc?

Are the Olive Ball / DogTooth seats genuine Recaros with custom adapters to mount them in a Miata or are they replicas that are designed from scratch to fit well in a Miata? I think that the genuine GT3 spec Recaro seats (p/n 996.521.986.01.8YR / 996.521.985.01.8YR) have a retail price of around $1600 ea. The authentic Porsche versions have the crest embossed (leather) or embroidered (cloth) in the headrest and the backs are painted black. "Carbon fiber" replicas are already showing up on eBay for ~$1600 / pair but I'm confident these are fiberglass with just 1 or 2 layers of carbon fiber on the outside. I'd be concerned about the shoulder wing width since this design cannot be easily trimmed down to fit.

Not so sure I could go without the headrests...that's gotta get old after awhile, no?

Likin the interior tho! They really set the whole thing off!
