All I know is this. Mine used to squeak and they were not as comfy as the stock seats. To pay that amount for some used seats, too me is not an option.

I've bought a few pieces of different shades of red, brown, burgandy, etc interior bits and nothing really matches it well. It is definitely unique.

The seats in question are dark blue leather, no heat (2 buttons, not 3), dark graphite hard-backs w/ silver Porsche logo, as well as the Porsche crest embossed on the headrests. Both in very good condition.

I will be buying a pair of Tillett 3.5 CF units and have not made up my mind whether to keep the hard-backs or not. How often would I swap seats?!?

Thumbs up

I recently sold these to a gentleman in Hong Kong for $4200 - shipping not included. They were 4-way, heated and in excellent condition, as my car only had 33k mi when I pulled them out. I also put new swithches in the driver's seat. I think the current market is $3500 and up, depending on condition, whether they're heated, color and rare Porsche embossing on headrest. Personally, I never found them comfortable on long rides, so I picked up the basic partial leather 8-way Recaros and funded some Spring mods

Thank you for the feedback. I will probably put them up for sale (w/ pictures) when I get back in the country.
