Default 330s Recaro Seats

Hi,

Have for sale a complete set, front and rear seats from my 330s sti hatch, which donít appear to go for sale very often and a much better seat than the standard sti ones.

The fronts are are the very sought after leather/suede Recaro items which are extremely comfortable and look amazing.

There is some light wear on the drivers side bolster as to be expected.

if you search on google images 330s seats you willl see the ones I have.

I have photos avaialble from from next week when I get home.

Open to sensible offers.

Many thanks.

The difference between the std seats and recaros is night & day.

the best way I can describe it is, std sti seats you sit on them, recaros you sit in them.

330s recaros are lighter shade than the pic shown above, the ones above are the facelift ones that came in all 2011-2012 sti

Ahh... yes - my bad

Nice seats

I already have about 4 sets of interior for the Leggy - the missus would go loopy if I bought these as well

No, 330s seats are not the same as Recaro Speeds but look similar.

It's not a criticism, but the last set I saw at Jap Performance Parts was well under a grand.

Theyíre worth what someone is willing to pay. Some Might go for that price some might not....they donít come for sale too often so if someone is keen then Iím open to reasonable offers.

I like the seats and would rather keep them in my garage than sell them for under a grand.

Besides Iíve lowered my expectations a fair amount on what I thought these things are worth.

Its no big deal. They sell or they donít.

Like I said before, they transform the way the car feels, and are probably one of the best upgrades someone could make. Did you put after market seats in as replacements?

yeah I agree the seats are exceptional....theyíre currently still on the car....I work away so the car only does around 2000 miles a year and isnít my only car anyways.......which is the reason Iím looking at putting in some Sparco QRT-V seats as theyíre only 4.5kgs a piece. The car has gone through a fair amount of weight reduction already however not to extreme levels
