Would you trade you're recaros for these?

Recommended Posts

Decided to start a new thread since there isn't much else going around so for fun

 

Would you trade you're recaros for these carbon fiber caravaggio daytona seats? They can come stiched in any combination you can imagine. Price is 6k.

Only thing you lose from doing this is seat air bag.

Well, for one........if you have no seat side air bags you will have a dash warning light on. Or, you'll have to get a tune to disregard the warning light.

 

I'd be happy with the recaros and new leather covers all around for less, in my case.

it doesn't look like you would gain much over the Recaro's with those seats, probably a weight savings though. However that black and white interior does look gorgeous.

Its more for looks and comfort rather than weight savings/performance

Ok maybe I should mention if cost was not an issue? If I were to do this the way I have it arranged only 2k comes out of my pocket but that is irrelevant. I'm trying to get opinions based on looks and quality only not cost.

bastardize lol

 

Why is it considered that when these seats are better than the seats in lambos and ferraris? This is probably the only mod we can put on a car that we can say is the best out there and that includes supercars as well.

Perfectly happy with the Recaro"s , no reason to spend the cash to bastardize the Shelby.

 

Me too. No need to mod something if I'm happy with that part of it.

Clearly you aren't truly interested in hearing any opinions that contradict yours, so why bother asking? Why even concern yourself with the opinions of others on a purely aesthetic mod? At the end of the day, when it comes to your car, the only opinion that matters is yours. Unless, of course, you're only doing things to impress us all.

Oh its not that at all. Most people are just saying they wouldn't change it because its good as is or that they would rather spend their money on other things.

 

I was looking more of a oh thats stupid because you won't be able to sell the car as easily after. Or maybe just a thats ugly or thats nice.

Don't you get it ?.....they just gave you their opinions..that is what you asked for!!...here's mine no I wouldn't change one thing in the GT500 int

 

and I like the regular seats in the GT500 more than the Recaros and yes this is my opinion.

+1, I agree, Recaros are not comfortable for me, some people are "built" differently as well as having different opinions.

Let's be frank folks...If money was no object Hell yeah I would buy these, I LOVE THE DIAMOND STITCHING!!! Unfortunately for most people MONEY IS AN OBJECT! Even for those loaded and priorities other than seats take precedence over seats in a car. 6K invested sounds better to me.

I wouldn't trade for them, they don't do anything for me. If money where no object we most likely would be on a different car forum not talking about the seats in a GT500. :extinguish:

Thats just it I could buy them if I wanted to thats if I had the GT500 but I think the regular seats in the car are just fine...as far as the diamond stitching

 

I saw enough of it in the 70's it was ok then but not now at least not in the Stangs...again JMO though.

I've just learned not to argue with you. I also wonder why you are commenting on base seats when I geared this towards recaro seats.

Well hey there are many people on here with around 10-15k invested in their shelbys. And another couple hundred buying 30k or more super snakes when half of that goes soley to the name. So if shelby's name alone is worth 15k why couldn't these be worth 6k? Especially since I find it interesting everyone has forgotten that if you were to switch to these you could sell your regular recaros for 3k so there is half the cost gone right there. Take a 10 percent discount off the seats and now they are only 2500 out of pocket.

 

Though I don't like the lack of side air bag. They told me its like that because then they would have to actual crash cars and do testing and the guy wasn't willing to do that. But yes 6k invested in stock or something like that is always a better idea. But sometimes the happiness you get out of something makes it worth it. Though there are some on here who would disagree.

To be clear in this discussion, the Recaro seat option that comes in the GT500 from Ford has side airbags in the seat, correct?

 

For both driver and passenger side?

Yes. The airbag tag is hard to read.

I do like the CF on the back of them. I dont care for the looks of the diamond stitching. I think it looks like it belongs in a 60's car or a Rolls or Bently or something.

It all comes down to personal preference however. The Recaros dont fit a big guy like me comfortably very well.

The work looks great.

Honestly, just doesn't work for me.

But they do look good.

Very happy with my Recaros.
