Just wondering if any one knows of any places here in germany to buy a set of recaro's, it is to much of a pain to ship to frankfurt and do all the paper work BS.. i just went through all that for my new bumper, wasnt worth it. I am looking for some ware with in a 5hr radius from bitburg but has to be in germany since i dont have my passport yet

I know one of the Recaro factories is here in K-town, but is closing down due to the economy situation... I also heard there was a store front somewhere around here also, I will ask my German workers tomorrow...

.: RECARO :.

you see the word Postleitzahl? Fill in your 5 Digit Postleitzahl, and you will see the nearest dealer. Don´t forget to fill out what you search, PKW Sportsitze and/or PKW Rennschalen

Those seats are for someone my size..anyways.

Are you going to hit up any trackdays? There were 2 different threads on SPA, I dont know how you could have missed them.

I will post up more trackdays soon..

I should be getting some more slicks next month.

do you like the 888's? any bad side of the tires? wet traction probly sucks though huh? look at the BFG's slicks they look nice but think it maybe to much tire for a subaru

The 888's are good for rough surfaces and longevity...so the Ring and Airports are good.

Now when it comes to real tracks I stick to my Michelin Slicks. As you can see in that short clip jorg posted.

(I have a set of yoko slicks that you can try out for $400 if you want) You should get two track days out of them.

If that is what they call them over here... they look like this

yes, these aren´t available in the aftermarket, but I´ve talked with a recaro dealer in Hilden yesterday. These seats are nearly the same as this one



if you can wait a month, maybe I´m able to show you something sweet;)
