Just don't pretend like you know any more than what can be found on google. Like other members have said you've been saying soon for months now, first may, then june, now hopefully july. Everything you've said there is really no backbone too, the logistics blah blah blah lol. Not trying to fight its just funny.

AFAIK, All Recaros are made by Johnson Controls.

That's a US company.

So you believe suppliers dictate to GM the timeline for when they should start selling a GMPP catalog product through Chevy dealers?

I am hoping that these seats are made available to all 2012 and 2013 ZL1 owners at a discount. They have the suede center section and power adjustments of the standard ZL1 seats and should be a plug and play swap. If there are any 2014 ZL1 buyers that were NOT going to buy the option, send me a PM.
Cms3713, thank you so much for all of your help with information about Recaro Seats for pre 2014 Camaros. I started this thread a long time ago (August 2013) and it is finally going to happen. I tried to get information from Recaro Customer Service over a year ago and could not get them to return my calls or emails, so thanks again for your input. I did get a call from my local Chevy dealer yesterday and he told me the seats were $3200.00 a piece. At that price, I am going to have to put it on the back burner for a while, I have a 2015 Corvette on order. Thanks again for all of your help.

3200 could be for all the individual pieces to put a seat together. Dealer told me parts are available but not as one complete seat.

I got the feeling it was for individual parts but he caught me when I was in the middle of doing something else and did not spend any time to get more information after he said it was $3200.00 each. I hope the complete assemblies come down a lot from these prices.

ZL1 Recaro Seats

CTS-V Recaro's are more plentiful used and they are ventilated. Has anyone tried to install them in a Camaro?

If the seat and track physically fit you'd just have to somehow connect controls for the ventilation. I've got a guy who could do it, he's a genius with wiring.
