Has Anybody Seen These Seats?

Postby freeride01 » April 1st, 2014, 11:15 pm

Hi guys and girls.

Just curious if anyone has seen these Recaro's before and from what model VW they came from?

I'm pretty sure those are just stock seats that have been reupholstered with the Recaro text.

I was kind of curious myself, just not sure what to make of it. Why would anyone reupholster a stock mk2 seat with some two tone fabric and "Recaro" stitched in? The upholstery is pretty sun faded and has been there a while. The rear seats definitely have the same stitch pattern as other Recaro's I've seen. But I can't find a reference to these seats anywhere. I did find them pictured in a 1988 Audi 100, so I'm just very curious to find out more. Any major way to tell if it's aftermarket upholstery?

Try looking on the bases for a serial/part number and google it. That's the only way I'd know how to identify them.
