E30 Recaro Seats (the real Recaro seats not your normal sport seats)

May 29, 2010

So you thought your E30 sport seats were Recaro’s? Think again the E21 sport seats were Recaro’s, not your E30’s. However real Recaro sport seats were offered as a rare option on E30’s. As seen here clearly stated by BMW themselves:

Furthermore Alpina offered Recaro seats in their E30’s also but again Alpina’s are rare and bring quite a premium!

Real OEM E30 Recaro seats are all but impossible to find, if you have a pair, in my opinion you have something very valuable!

What a lot of people do is take seats out of a VW MkII GTI because they are very similar and then make mounts.

This is both a “interesting stuff” and “Do it yourself”; because the mounts look fairly easy to make if you have any old flux cored MIG welder.

    I actually have a 323i that was gray market imported to usa. it has recaro seats and a bunch of the mtechnic parts on it. i contacted recaro a few years ago and they said they can make replacement seats but really expensive.

    How much exactly did they quote to make replacements?
