Recaro Sport Seats


Recommended Posts

Price: $550
Location: Buffalo, NY USA


The story: I bought them about 10-11 years ago to put in my car (1980 633csi). Something else was always more pressing on the car, including a 4 year motor rebuild, so they never got re-done. Seller told me that they were out of a e21, which was consistent with the e21 seat tracks on the seats when I got them.

They are not BMW Recaros - they are Recaros that were sold by seat dealers aftermarket as part of their "L-Modular System" where you could customize seat backs and bottoms. They were very popular, supposedly, with the Porsche and Ferrari crowd too. You can find the original literature on line.

I currently have comfort seats in my car. I decided to keep it bone stock and just order the replacement covers for those instead, and have the horsehair pads rebuilt. I thought on keeping these for my next project (which was hopefully a 2002 - I am a frequent lurker), but could also do with making some space.

If I was to use them, I would break them down, clean and repaint the frames. Some of the padding will probably need to be replaced, some will probably still be OK. And obviously recover them. All the functions seem to work, albeit they are missing the two plastic lever covers on the side for the forward fold mechanism.

I am looking to get $550, including the e21 rails. That's what I have into them. They weigh about 50lbs each with the rails.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
