Thanks, Suss... I like the look of the Yellow/Black seats in a Tangerine Scream, but full leather is probably nicer long term. I assume the 202A full leather have the same shape as the partial.

The ST3 Recaros (202A) is the same frame but with the power driver's seat track and the seat heaters installed with the full leather seating surfaces as the 201A

Cool thanks. Dual color looks neat but full leather seems nicer especially with the differences you pointed out.

I've heard the ST3 seats are a tad tighter due to all that goodness under the leather

Sat my fat ass in my buddys st2 and although it was tight that ostensibly kind of what one would expect from a race-inspired seat, basically the same snugness of my Corbeaus. It is the price one pays for a seat that grabs your ass on every turn. Certainly wouldn't stop me from buying one, had I the funds(though id likely buy a fiesta st instead).

Yeah that's unlikely, the seat heater pads don't take up that much room and they would just have compressed or removed enough foam to keep them at the same height. thickness as the ST2 seat, also the power seat track is mostly in the frame mechanism which would not take up more space. So why would anyone think they were tighter beyond fractions of a millimeter at the most is beyond me.

They are "uncomfortable" for the first 5-10 minutes but once you're driving around in them, its almost like they're not there. Super supportive. I want one for an office chair.
Agreed. And I find that surprising as I'm 5' 10" 180 lb and think they're GREAT! I too have over wide shoulders. I get in my Mustang now and think the seats are horrible ans sloppy.

I'll throw in $500 and my black leathers from my 2012 for some recaros. ;-)

I'm 6' 1", fat and I never found issue with them at all.

They have this sort of break in period, all of 5 minutes.

Then they just feel awesome.

These are not your average grade crap box frames with mediocre bolstering. Of course if all you've ever owned is a wide seat with littler support you'll find these weird.

You have to careful with your comments, there are a lot of very sensitive boys here that offend rather easily.
