    Recaro

    So I'm in the market for new seats and I'm looking at recaros. Does anyone know what model these are? I'm guessing Speeds but I'm also very interested in this exact color but have not found any place that carries these. Any input would be appreciated.

    Those look like replicas...

    If not, they are speeds.

    No. The only stock Recaro seats in a Subaru have been the special edition models in Japan.

    they're not but they are honestly the best seats I've ever put my fat butt in...

    plus the red stitching and "wrx" written on it just makes them look so nice...

    but i've never sat in a true/real recaro seat so idk...

    Recaros tend to pinch my chest.

    I'm running a CG-Lock this year in Auto-X so we'll see how that works.

    what do you mean by pinch if I may ask?

    like they're too tight/narrow causing pressure on your sternum?

    I heard big guys shouldn't sit in them... so would it also cause annoyance to hips and waist?
