2014 Seats and Hood

Anyone know if you can buy the hood and seats separately?? I love them so much and want them!

If you mean the Recaro seats, some guys here are getting a group buy together for them. Both seats & hood are available from GM parts but be warned that the 2014 hood with the hood vent has a wider cowl induction section across the hood than 2010-2013's do, and also 2014 V6's appear to have the same exact basic hood from 2013-2013 Camaro's.

I thought it was said that the 2014 hood wouldn't fit the older 5th gens.

The 2014 V6 hood is the same as 2010-2013, but the V8 hood has wider lines that extend into the front bumper facia and it will not line up with 2010-13 models.

The Recaro seats are not available for alone purchase from GM yet.
But rest assured when they are, it will cost $3300 minimum.
They will gouge on it like they do on the carbon insert for ZL1 hoods because they know so many people want them.

I have Recaro's in my DD and I really don't see the big deal other than they look cool. I admit they hold you in place very well but unless you track I don't think they're worth the $.

Recaros are about 5 pounds (ish) lighter than the regular seats.

You're going to need to cite a source for that before someone raises the BS flag.

EDIT—After doing some research, I found some strikingly similar Recaro Sportster CS seats online for under $1400. While I doubt we'd find them with matching interior cloth or fancy stitching for that cheap, there is a similar option out there right now for way under $3000.

I searched for the same seats you referred to, "Recaro Sportster CS" and those $1,400 seats are not leather and dont have power adjustment or heat like the ones in the 2014. (dont the 2014 Recaros have air bags in them as well?) The pricing I was seeing was $1,400 for 1 seat, not the pair and leather was a $400 option. The $1,995 option price is the difference between the base model seat and the Recaro replacement. I am not saying they are going to be $3,300 but they are going to be a good bit more than the $1,995. One saving grace though is that you dont have to buy two of them you can just get one for the driver if you are getting them specifically for racing.

I like the hood as well. Will the vent be sold separately or is there a similar aftermarket? Something like the hex vent but single unit

Yes the vent will have it's own part# and will be sold separately. No aftermarket products yet for the 2014 hood
