I didn't know that this thread shows pics as well. Well, Pengole, yours and mine look very much alike.

Here are a few shots of my humble BTR-2. The BTR is my first Porsche too.

Enjoy.

Adam,

Nice to see you chime in here. I always admire your pair of Rufs. 204 MPH at night is simply incredible.

I hope your new M5 is staying trouble-free.

We fly to Europe on Wednesday August 29-2007. I hope to visit Ruf in Phaffenhausen on Friday August 31-2007. Are you in Germany at that time?

Adam,

That is one incredible run.

In case you have not seen this. This is an amazing video as well. The mighty Veyron hitting 240 MPH.

Steve,

Rufus looks great!!!! it looks like the Ruf seats have some adjustabilty to them, which my new car does not have with the GT3 seats???

so i'm also considering changing them and going to the original turbo seats or would you recomend sticking to the Ruf theme?

pengole,

Yes, the Ruf Sport seats can recline and flip forward. They even have an optional lumbar adjust (I didn't do that option). Ruf sport seats in leather are roughly $6500 for the pair. I got mine direct from the manufacturer (Konig... K5000g) for about half of that price. They do not have the Ruf logo, however. They are still expensive, but for me... trying to keep my car as close to 100% Ruf as practical, they are perfect. The Euro GT3 seats are also terrific for holding you in place, but are a pain in my very old **** for getting in and out of. Plus they do not recline or allow any access to the rear. If the GT3 seats are bothering you, they can be very easily sold for very good money. If you want nice Porsche seats, you have little choice but the Sport seats, which are very pricey... the standard Porsche seats (turbo or non-turbo... makes no difference) are very comfy, but not really "sporty" enough for the Turbo R's nature. But they are availabe second hand for very reasonable prices (lots available as people upgrade their seats).

There are lots of great seats out there. But for me, there was little choice but the Ruf seats.
