This option is a must have if you plan on buying a 2014.

I wonder why they aren't avalible to order on the convertible? I would like to swap these in my vert, but maybe there's a reason I can't.

Any ideas?

I already had Recaro's in the rear.... a pair of child seats!

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.
Indeed,

Those Recaro seats are spectacular! They are very comfortable and I would definitely recommend anyone interested to check them out.

Interesting that they aren't an option on the Verts, but if they're not, I'd guess it's for the same reason there are other things the Vert doesn't get, and they are all performance related.

No PTM modes on the Vert
Top end restricted to 155mph
No belly pan.

My guess is that GM assumes Vert owners buy the car more for pleasure than for racing, and since the Recaro's are usually preferred by some for side support when the race, that side support isn't as important in a Vert.

I don't really see any reason that you can't retrofit the Recaro's into a Vert, they may not just be a factory option.

Just a guess mind you.

They are a $1995 option on the 2014 ZL1, so they'll be double that if ordered through a dealership's parts department.

Sure they're nice, and if I was buying a 2014 i'd get them, but all you guys asking when you can order them for your 2010-13's... are you REALLY going to buy a pair of seats for well over 2000 dollars? I kinda doubt it.

If you are a Costco member you can buy them at a 15% discount through their auto program. Only thing it doesn't cover is oil changes, tires and whatnot. But accessories are covered under the program.

Apparently you don't believe in modifying your car. Also they are a stylish racing seat I can use vs putting something in car that is a eye sore.

So has there been confirmation that the entire COMPLETE seat assemblies will be available to order, or just various individual pieces and components of the seats? Can you order our current (non-recaro) seats complete with leather covers, foam, tracks, etc. ready to bolt-in? If so, how much are they listed for? Just curious.

Are you going to buy a matching back seat as well?
