Default New Recaro seats for GS300...

I bought some new seats for the GS300. There dark brown leather Recaro's. Electrically controlled with air lumbar support in the lower, middle and upper part of your back. They also have built in heaters. They are very comfortable to sit in for long periods of time. Thats about all I know about them. Does anyone know the model # or maybe if they where stock seats in another vehicle or something? Thanks.

50,000Y for both of them.

Hey Jeff. Do you think they can be fitted to the stock seat rails? The bottom is flate except for 2 plates that run across the bottom from side to side. One in the front and one in the back. The backrest moving forward and back is the only electrical part. They don't have an option to move forward and back. Can I keep the stock controls to move the entire seat forward and back? I was going to order the bride seat rails. They are only 26,000Y for a set for this car. The guy told me to just fab them to the stock seat rails.

I doubt it bro. The stock seat rails are integrated into the bottom of the seat on the GS. I made my own platform and bracket with about a 4" lift for the Bride. I also used a cheap slider from a set of DAD (bobo) seats I had laying around. Since the car is down right now I can take measurements of the bracket I made and send to you, or I can fab you a few and just leave them undrilled for the sliders.. you can do that much

I used 2" wide 1/4" thick steel bar for mine.. I think on one bracket I went thru about 9 feet of the stuff.. Needed it to make the "hoops" the seat sits on for the 4" lift.

let me know.. my drivers seat is just sitting on the floor in the garage, I'll take another look at the stock brackets for you, but I think it is a no go.

I'm vietnamese, but I look filipino......hehehe. I always wear a cap that has the word "Compuware" on it. I was at the end of the pier, usually in the back of Ruby's or the right side of it.
