Hi guys,

Any news as to when VW plans to introduce these seats as an option or maybe std on the GTIs?

The sides are thinner so there just isn't room to install them.

Why you would want them over the already very good standard seats for an extra ?1000 I wouldn't know, but a fool and his money are soon parted...

I prefer to look at it this way, if any car is going to be nicked it won't be mine for it's std seats, it will be the one with these in.

I just can't wait, my dealer has taken my order and has it on rolling allocation for when these seats are available to order.

Hopefully it won't be too long now.

Can't say I'm gagging for them either atm - the lack of lumbar would potentially screw me up (being a bit of a big git, it's kinda helpful having that! [;)]

Can I please ask if anyone actually knows for sure that the GTI will get these Recaro seats as an option? I've literally just ordered a GTI and the dealer said that ONLY the R32 will get these as an option, NOT the GTI. He was very certain about this. Obviously if you've been told different I'd appreciate the name of the dealer that said this to you - at least then I can put Abridge VW in Harlow (Essex) in touch with them and hopefully have Recaros on my GTI! Cheers.

The VW website still lists that the Recaro's will be available on the GTi mid 2005 (well it did the last time I looked)!

My dealer has taken my order and believes the Recaro seat option will be available early next year, he reckons January.

So fingers crossed I hope to take delivery sometime in March on the new '06' reg.

anyone got confirmation on whether or not the Recaro seat option will available for UK ordered GTIs? The latest price list says no [:(]

I see the volkswagen.de GTI 'konfigurator' has them as an option in cloth or leather for German market GTIs, but that of course means little here
