Thanks I was typing in a hurry without much thought. Yes, "making them available" to ZL1 owners is much nicer way of stating it.

OK, it has been awhile since I checked. Has anybody been able to buy COMPLETE ZL1 Recaro Seats over the counter yet? I know that there are a lot of 12 and 13 ZL1, SS and 1LE owners that would like to be able to order these for their cars. Anybody heard anything yet???

Thanks guys, a friend just bought a 2014 GT500 and wanted me to drive it and compare it to my ZL1. The Recaros in his car really seemed to be the same size and shape as the ones in the ZL1. They just fit me like a glove. He wanted me to drive it hard and I pushed it some but his car did not have 150 miles on it yet so I did not completely trash it. Besides he only lives a few houses away from me and we see each other all the time. Some immediate observations: I thought it was a stiffer ride than the Z. He said he had it in sport but I still thought it was stiffer than in my Sport mode. Also the engine did not seem to spool up as fast as compared to the Z. You could feel the torque moving the car quickly but the tach needle seemed to be crawling up. Of course it is a brand new engine that is still tight but the biggest thing was the shifter and clutch pedal. Much more effort is needed to push the clutch down and the shifter was nowhere as smooth as the Z's. And the last thing is the sound or lack of it. It does not have the Z's immediate start up rumble or it's take off roar, a much quieter sound for all of that horsepower. I did not have the chance to drive a GT500 before I bought my Z, but for me and my opinion, the Z is a much better overall package, even with 80 less HP. But the Recaros, they are definitely the best seat for either Camaros or Mustangs.

Have you tried them out? I haven't been able to find them anywhere, just seems like an option that's very hard to find. Would love to at least get a chance to see how they feel. My seats, stock, are really comfortable, but I'm small so they're not snug enough to hold me in place. I've heard good and bad reviews on them.

Also let us with the vert decide if we want them or not! Don't make the decision for us...

I think what she is saying that even finding them at dealers is difficult. Tom Henry had 0 on the lot with Recaros the last three times I've been there.

Basically if its a customer order they're opting for the recaros. If they're the ordering manager orders, they're not opting for them. At least that's the trend I see.

When I was searching in my area to sit in them before I bought a car, it didn't take long to find a couple, it could be a regional thing though. Remember you can look for them on SS's ZL1s and Z28s.

Tom Henry is showing a ZL1 in stock with the Recaros (although sometimes in stock on a web site could be an inbound sold car). Near Plymouth where Normagene is according to the profile, Quirk is showing a Z28 in stock, not sure if they'll let you sit it in or not....

That's where I first test drove a ZL1. I almost bought from there too until he couldn't locate me the right one (red hot, recaros, nav, etc.)

He did call me not too long ago to let me know they had a Blue ray on the lot with recaros and it was literally sold 2 days later lol.

Yea I checked every trim of Camaro that TH had. I Ben checked the dealership where I got my ZL1 and some of the tinier dealerships around where I live now. Haven't had any luck.

That ZL1 wasnt at TH when I was there last. May have to check again.

Haven't found a car with them at any of the area dealerships. As soon as I do I will definitely try them out.

To those who have sat in ZL1's Recaro seats, how do they feel compared to stock seats? My Dad has problems sitting and needs a comfortable seat, good cushion. Are Recaro seats way better than stock? Adequate cushion? Is it worth buying a ZL1 with Recaros?

I'm searching for a 2012-13 grey ZL1, sunroof, loaded, etc.

Thx.
