Default Recaro Sport Topline seats installed.

I recently bought a C2 for myself & decided to go all out on it, the car came with recaro cloth SRD seats and a harness which i did not like, specially that this car is now my DD, i wanted something more stock looking, leather and comfortable. Enter the Recaro Sport Topline seats which are reclinable power seats and have heat & ventilation amongst other features, the only part that is not power is the forward/backward- the seats look close to the stock sport seats & are 10 times more comfortable & functional, plus they look "classy" in the car . Definitely a nice upgrade to any 964. The heated seats work too good, wish they had different levels of heat is only other feature i'd have liked to have.

These seats are about $3500 for the pair without hardware but i bought them slightly used from a friend for a pretty good deal.

Nice touches all around the cabin. Looks like a nice place to watch the world go by!
What's the plaque on the passenger side all about?

70th anniversary plaque. Probably very stupid and not good idea on the placement right on the airbag, I need to find a new place for it

Damn, too slow per usual. I've been on the hunt (sort of back burner).

Nice seats! cooling and heating is pro. A few years ago I saw feedback about the inferior build quality, how is it today?

Hey tarek, great looking seats. Probably a stupid question, but what's the thing mounted behind the clock?

living in TX now, i've become a big fan of ventilated seats. i don't see perforations on those seats, so i'm not sure how they work.
seats look very nice though and you can't go wrong putting them into a black 964!! looks great. i need a 964 back in the stable!

Great looking seats and car! I like how they look stockish. I wonder how much better they feel than my sport seats.
