    What seats do I have in my SRi?

    Bought some tailor made seat covers on Ebay but as I don't have original book for the car I'm not sure if I have 'sports' or 'recaro' seats.

    2000 Astra G Sri 2.0, (non-modified interior).

    I shouldn't think they would be recaro's. Probably just sports seats. I'm sure someone will be along shortly to give u a solid answer.

    "Sports" seats are standard fit on Astra SXi and SRi (and CDX when leather option is specified).

    "Recaro" seats weren't even an option on new '00 Astras but aftermarket Recaros are available.

    Thats a misconception matey.
    They are made by johnson controls strip a seat down and you will see.
    And johnson controls dont make the best seats going in the automotive feild. Lear are a lot better quality. (I worked for both places you see)
    the recaros im sure is just the covers they make not the whole seat
