You can get them in Germany with heating, Suede and airbag for $2000. I wanted to wait until the Camaro ones got out, but if they really run 3k a piece, I will take them with me from Germany on my next trip there.

That is what I'm looking into now. I will end up with either Recaro or Status Spa seats. There is the air bag testing simulator that you can use.

It's not a fail. When the average person asks "will I be able to buy the Recaro seats?" They mean the full assembly. When you buy seat from race seat makers you typically buy them as complete assemblies.

And what I was disagreeing with you on was that the statement of "they're not available" as whole units directly contradicted what Al O. said and that I wish we could get official word from GM on the specifics. Something as easy as "full assemblies will be available through dealerships beginning in fall/winter/spring for a price of X per seat" would be sufficient.

Due to constraint for building cars. Hope this helps everyone. Now all we need is a group buy to save money these won't be cheap.

Exactly. They aren't going to have to a different P/N for the 13's. They are fully compatible but not yet available in a full ASSEMBLY.

If you find a dealer that is willing to order "Replacement parts" for one of their 2014 ZL1's saying the seats are damaged, that way GM will send it out, it comes with a full kit.

*Patiently waits for Patrick at GM Parts House to offer (relatively) reasonable prices on full assemblies*

I only want the driver seat, and I'll pay an outrageous amount for it, too. It felt GREAT to sit in @ The Fest, much better than other street/racing seats I've tried.

Maybe I missed it, but will the non-power seats have more adjustment than fore/aft (and backrest angle)? Usually manual seats don't, but I remember than 4thgen Firebird manual seats had a partially adjustable bottom portion, too. I'd hope the Z/28 would have that adjustability based on it's raison d'ętre. Or maybe not, because it would add weight.
Anyone know?

When you do that though - GM requires the dealer to send in the damaged seats. Same thing goes for if your dealer is trying to get you a new wheel because yours was damaged during delivery.

Not necessarily, the dealer could simply say the customer didn't come back to complete the RO and then the parts stay in inventory lol...

LOL really? GM makes them send the damaged goods back. If they don't, they get charged for those as well.

Those seats are very very nice. I gotta find a dealership that has a vehicle on the lot with them so I can try them out! They look great, and I have no complaints about my stock seats, although sometimes in a curve I'll slide around a tad. These look like they will hold you nice and firm, no sliding around! I stopped by Quirk Chevrolet yesterday, something like ten 2014s on the lot, no ZL1s though, and not one car had these seats. Wonder if I'd get anything in trade for my stock seats, probably not, and paying four grand, wish they were an option when I placed my order...

Just sat in some recaros and I have to say...they look cool, I am sure they are lighter, definitely hold you side to side...but...the most uncomfortable seats I've sat in. Not sure what the hype is. Id take my '13 ZL1 seats over them any day.

They are a little snug for a big guy. I am just under 300lbs and I fit in them, but not as comfy as my stock ZL1 seats.

GM requires the parts departments to hold on to the parts replaced on a warranty claim for X amount of time. If GM requests the parts be sent back (this depends on the part) within that time, the dealer has to provide it. It's usually so the engineers can do a failure analysis (like a back end quality control check). Once that time frame has past, the dealer can do whatever they want with it.

There's a thread already gauging interest for a group buy.
