Picked up a set of E21 Recaros today, not bad, not bad at all. 
Missing the covers for both seat back levers but foam is decent, new straps wouldn’t hurt and covers are a bit odd but  I can probably live with them in Franzi as is. 
90 minute drive up I5  to pick up. 
My best score off CL to date,  I’m kinda stoked😬

Yes.  Thinking about Recaros for my 02, wondering about cost, asking how much you paid for your "Score?"

 

$650.00 + half tank of fuel and 5 hrs of my time.

Not sure yet cost involved in purchasing seat back lever handles and covers..

Drivers seat has the typical "screwdriver in the pocket rash" and I could do without the "E21" embossed into the headrests but oh well.

I'm happy with the deal😉

The seats at Aardvark Have much, much better upholstry ( German vinyl) 

Problem with buying outright from them is they can’t get near enough decent cores, they have a lengthy waiting list and don’t think they are even  taking  new names for it

I think that upholstery pattern on your new seats is called "Orca"  😁

 

Good score, though, regardless.  As E21s disappear from salvage yards, there goes our supply of OD 5 speeds, Recaro seats, LSDs, and pushbutton dash switches...

Nice score. Are you going to make your own brackets? I just made brackets for mine yesterday. Fastmetals.com will ship you 3/8 x 2 in x 18in bar stock for about $12 a piece. 10 minutes on a drill press and a fist full of M6-1.0x25mm counter sunk fasteners and you're good to go. If you are using aftermarket dual locking slides, PM me and I'll explain how I managed to clearance the connecting rod under the seat pan. 

 

I left a ton of extra material on my brackets incase I wanted to adjust my seat position further to the rear. Also in hindsight I should have drilled multiple mounting locations for adjustment purposes and to tuck the seat in closer to the parking brake without having to go back to the press every time.

My life is so chaotic so probably not, in fact due to new developments I don’t see any car time (fun) at all in my foreseeable future. Yesterday was a good day, today is not

    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
