Allegedly in Europe it does, but this isn't Europe so not in North America.

I love the recaros on the ST. Just recline the seat if it hurts your shoulders or go sit on a wooden chair

I guess I woulda fit in the ST2 seats 16 years ago when I weighed 150 lbs, or 10 years ago when I weighed 175. But not now! Getting old is hell.

I did see a guy that's heavier than me driving around in a Tangerine Scream ST2 a couple weeks ago. I have no idea how he's doing it.

You're correct my apologies... the cloth are not Racaro seats (I read that they were on other websites). As for the rest I stand by my opinion... haha.

You would be correct in that I never gave much attention to the Focus SVT... I was too much in love with my 03' Saab 9-3 Vector.

I actually really like the Sport seats quite a bit and fit my 5"10" 190lb frame. I've sat in the Recaros and they fit me great and around town would be nice but if I was in them for 5-9 hours would be a real test for those extended road trips.

32 years old, soooo; not middle aged and no mid-life (that's what Vettes are for). Perhaps you could only see yourself driving those seats for the aforementioned reasons...

I drove in all three of those seats, and the most uncomfortable of the three was your vaulted ST3 leather! They'll be years before they break in and allow the driver's position to feel settled; just like the old rental car type seats: it feels like you're on top of the seat, and not in it.
And an argument could be made that if sophistication is what your shopping for you've been led astray; the general population in this country aren't gonna think any Focus has sophistication (with the exception of this lot)! I've been painting and color matching everything I thought would look good since I got mine in '03 which is why the ST2's appeal to me; but I'd take an LMFAO-themed animal print seat in a heartbeat over a sophisticated-looking one that didn't cradle me properly!

I can already see the symbiotic-swaps happening for these warlocks: if the elder-boppers hate the colory ones and the boy racers want the accented seats...

If I get my ST1, down the road I may look into snagging the leather seats out of a wrecked Titanium. I love the seats in my current car.
