Z28 Seats

I can't be the only one who is in love with these Recaro Racing seats. So my question is, who would remove their seats and put these in their car. Do you think it will be a straight swap with possibly a different harness? Or a whole new seat frame?

I'm sure most will want to, I already got myself on a list for when they are finally released. As of now there is still no info on them.

I'm guessing in the 3k range.

They are not just for the Z28, they are for the SS to. It's the Recaro seat upgrade for the SS or Z28.

Are these thinner than the stock seats we have now? I'm looking for increased room for the kids in the backseat.

to me, they look very uncomfortable for DD, or long drives. If a weekend or track car only, maybe I could stand them. But for me, they do nothing and would not be an "upgrade" for my car.

LOL, you're just jealous that your kids have better seats than you.

As long as they're not ridiculously overpriced, and not on constraint for months, I would do the retrofit. I like the recaros in the mustang over their regular seats by a large margin.

The recaros through FRPP are about $2500, I'm hoping GM can stick to the same pricing.
