$1287 per the sticker on my '97 4S. Plus $194 for the crest in the headrests.

$4k seems to be pretty reasonable for these factory seats compared to what that place in LA was asking for theirs a while ago. The PO of my car checked the crest box which from my observations wasn't checked that often.

The hard back seats look awesome, but what always stops me is they do not have harness guides. If they had the guides I would be all over it.

Link to classifieds thread shows these have bolster damage. Not sure it would command full price with that.

You would definitely have to figure the repair into the total cost.

Considering that kind of wear I think $4K is too much

Price is too high given the significant wear.
Repair may not be possible which may mean replacement of the covering.
If you replace one, you might as well replace both so they match.
Then you can reasonably ask $4k.

If they were Grand Prix White, had no bolster wear, came with the girl pictured above, and for $1000, I'd be all over them.

Rennlist bretheren,

I appreciate the positive comments and suggestions regarding price points ... to the posters that can't afford or don't like hardback sports seats i'm not sure what value you are adding to the conversation ? These are highly sought after seats and at the peak market people have paid much more. I want to move these seats at a fair price and am listening to your advice /feedback.

I based my original price on what was paid for the seats ($4000 plus the repainting of the hardbacks in Glacier White $500). Giving $500 credit for repair and reconditioning I arrived at $4000. Sounds like the market is at $3500 to $4000 for nice examples that need no repair.

With that being said my new price is $3200/offer.

That is a very good price. The bolsters could be easily repaired by a good shop and the seats re-dyed. If I didn't already have them I'd be on these. Very tough to differentiate Glacier and Grand Prix whites on a seat back unless they were side by side and tough to tell they are Glacier inside a GP white car. Of course, IMHO.
