Get the Recaros. Rent a econobox if you need to have wheels till your car comes in.

Yeah the recaros fit me great. If you have some extra weight hanging around, they might not be comfy.

Haha well I'm gonna talk to the salesman since he's a hell of a nice guy and see what he can do, or see if his service dept. has them. My dad is helping me with the funding a bit (kind of a graduation present) and its his call in the end. But ultimately its not a deal breaker, for me it was the 5.0 or no go

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.

They're great seats for anything but longer drives. Would pass if the car is a DD. These seats are not for everyone or for every application.

There just really isn't anyway to adjust your positioning in longer drives, as the chair wants you to sit straight and in one position. My threshold of driving in them straight is about 7-8hrs.

I'm 6'3 245 and the Boss recaros fit me fine, will even better when I drop another 20+ lbs... eventually. Oddly enough the sport seats in my Infiniti G37S pinched my thighs, never could get 'used to it' even when I was ~ 230lbs, it was the width of my legs down from my hips, not the girth of each one that caused the problems. Not everyone who doesn't fit can be assumed be a fat bleep. :nogrinner

I'm 6'7" and 280... the Recaros are a little to small for me... I think the seats may not be comfy on a long drive.... but I can always add some temporary padding between me and the seat if need be...

They do look awesome! AWESOME! :kooky:

On the window sticker of the 2013's, they show the Recaro manual Leather Seats for 1,595.
