Really liking this seat option.

Had Recaro PP on the brain prior to everyone's feedback. Love the fixed bucket idea, but this car isn't about absolute lightweight and the loss of functionality was weighing on me. I definitely have people or put my road bike in the back often enough to want to keep the folding option. This seat offers enhanced leg bolsters, that's a big plus also and one thing the sports seats are still lacking. Definitely look good in a 964 also.
They are one of the most comfortable seats I have ever owned.

Bob has a bunch of options. I was at Stable the other day and he has black with blue cloth inserts in the second version that would look nice as well.

With Laurent's door cards, console and your existing cobalt stuff you are only carpets and rear parcel shelf/panels away from a full conversion. You can add foam and recover the bolsters in cobalt for regular seats, not perfect but it can be done and works pretty well. Store your originals.

BTW what color is your headliner? Worth considering.
Wise words, but I think our blue interiors are different. Dash and blue trim is dark blue, not cobalt, so I think black carpet and seats would work... the blue and black combo on the dash look good, so it leads me to believe black for the rest of the interior would work also. I need to better educate myself on the Porsche color names of my interior.

Blue headliner, same color as dash and top of the door cards.

After having recently visited the Porsche Museums, in both Stuttgart and Gmund, I'm going to hold off modding the interior for as long as I can. I love modded cars, especially Rgruppe cars, but something in the back of my head keeps telling me to keep it stock and appreciate what it is and what I have.

When I get back to the States in July, I'm going to pick up my dad's C2 Cab and take it back to my Haus and give it a complete overhaul. It will finally get much needed new suspension and cup 1 rims, plus a through look over by my local experts. He wants a new carpet set so I'll experiment with his car. I'll focus on his car first and just enjoy driving mine around for awhile until fall. If I can't live with it, then I'll redo the interior.

Very cool! $6,000. Loved reading the BAT comments.

Starving for anything Porsche during our family vacation last week, I looked at the route from Salzburg to Venice and then it hit me. GmŘnd! Where it all started, and where a nice Rubystone 964RS sits.

It turned out to be a wonderful family pitsop on the long drive south. While buying souvenirs, the owner Helmut Pfeifhofer walked in! Apparently when he went to the factory to pick up the RS, buyers could pick there own color, shocked at the color he declined his allocation. He ended up buying the car 10 years later. You should have seen the sparkle in his eye when he said he bought for half the original price.
