What do you mean by most? Common sense suggests that if the seat bottom has an extra cushion that can be extended a bit, the answer is obvious - however you define it. Considering many of the Recaros have been reupholstered, your supposition about the state of foam in the universe has merit too.

Maybe your the webbing in your recaro seats are shot? That would cause your rear end to sit closer to the flloor, and make the cushion part that is suppose to support your legs feel too high, in comparison to where your but is.

If that's the case, you can get new webbing here. http://www.2002parts.com/html/webbing_repair_kit.html

I think I know what you mean. My seats are recently reupolstered ones, and the seat bottom certainly sits at a skyward angle. I had thought of putting some spacers at the back to level them out a little.

    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
