Post RS seats anyone?

So, I'm getting Sparco seats in two weeks, and I'd like to let the NESIC guys get first crack at my 2.5 RS seats. Who wants?

They have 16,000 miles on them, I don't smoke (and I don't let anyone smoke in my car), etc. etc.

The seats are going in at Rallispec, so they might need to be shipped from there, unless I can figure out how to stuff them into my car... unlikely though. That's the only drawback.

Well, let me know if anyone is interested - I'll entertain all offers. Otherwise, I guess I'm going to have some cool living room furniture.

Ack! I tried to use my seat as living room furniture, but it was too uncomfortable! (Guess that's why I bought a Recaro..) Anyway, I'm keeping my seat, in case I want to trade in my car for a WRX!

UConn - I thought all RS seats are the same black/grey "checkered flag" color and pattern? You can see it on the Subaru web site.

I haven't seen anyone trying to sell seats here, so I don't know what a fair price is... anyone out there care to make an informed guess? My first guess is a couple hundred each, if my new seats are any indication, but I'm not out to be Mr. Scrooge here.

ttoversteer, did you happen to look at the price on RS seats before you bought your Recaro?

At the Sparco distributor showroom I saw these really cool brackets that made the Sparco seats into functional living room chairs... I want some of those. I actually find the RS seats pretty comfy, but they could really use more bolstering and lumbar support, which the Sparcos I'm getting dish out in spades. My back was getting really sore from my repeated Boston->New Jersey runs.

Black checkered seats with my tan interior... Only if you were giving them away Edwin.

Kris, I wouldn't want you to put such a color combo in your car if even if I WAS giving them away. I'd gag the next time I saw it.

Well, it is possible to reupholster the seats - I'm doing that with the back seats and door panels to match the Sparcos. It's not even that expensive.

Edwin: Nope. I didn't want an RS seat, though. I did want a Recaro. (It's a comfort and autox thing...) What'd I miss with the prices?

Question

Hey Edwin,
Long time since we have heard from ya.
I am not interested in the seats, but would like to know how much the work is to have the rear seats and doors redone to match, and where you are having the work done. I was thinking about doing something like that. Not for a while, since I just finished all the stereo stuff.
You can e-mail me instead of posting if you want, and we should try to meet up one of these Sturdays, since I know you are busy on Sundays. I would like to see your new stuff, and maybe drive your RS? Hint.. Hint..
Are you going to the autocross this Sunday in Ayer, Ma?
I am planning on attending, and thought we could follow each other.
Paul G.
