Hi guys,

Would anyone be interested in a set of the factory optional cloth Recaros as fitted to 145s in some LHD markets?
I imported them a couple of years ago and have had them fitted for a while, I've now returned to leather seats as I'm moving towards selling the car at some point.

Condition-wise they're pretty good - the rear seats are pretty much immaculate and the fronts are good too, though the following issues are present:

-Bolster wear on the passenger seat
-Parts of the plastic seat surround are missing/broken
-There's some uneven discolouration of the fabric on the front seats (sun bleached perhaps?)

The seats also still need to be converted to RHD which I think(!) is as simple as swapping the seat rails/bases with a RHD set. This means that there's no height adjustment on the driver's seat though this never bothered me as it was just the right height for me.

So...any interest in these? If not I'll stick them on eBay. I'm not sure on price - sensible offers welcome though.

Pictures would of course be helpful but I can't seem to find any. I'll try to upload some tomorrow evening. In the meantime see this link for general pictures:

Hopefully these photos show everything worth mentioning about the condition of the seats. Any questions, fire away and I'll do my best to answer.

Please note I'll be away for a couple of weeks as of Friday so I may not be able to reply until I return.

May be interested in these for my 75....which are all LHD anyway.

But what i'm even more interested in are the wheels in the background....are those for sale?

Do you mean the Zender ones to the left of the seats? If so then I don't really want to sell those - they're midway through a home refurb and I plan to put them on my 164 Q4 when I'm finally done with them. All four have been stripped of lacquer and paint and had the studs removed, and I'm going for a polished metal finish, but it's taking forever. Lots of wet sanding is involved!

I may be persuaded to sell the set on the other side of the picture though. I don't really want to sell this set either haha, but I don't really need two sets of these wheels. Though I might stick them on my other 164.

Hi guys,

The seats are still available, I need them gone now so I've revised the auction to start at 99p. No reserve. They've got to go!
