    Your can buy the same seat direct from recaro but i won't have VXR on it. It was a Recaro model before the VXR came out and it's just been rebadged

    Since we're talking about VXR and Recaro seats:
    What type of recaro model does the Astra GSi use?
    Daily driver: =The Linea Oro - Gold Line Coupe=
    Summer drive: '05 Speedster Turbo - Build number 4798
    Got a turbo in my life - now I'm broke

    I have some hen's teeth, you're more likely to find them than those seats 2nd hand and if you do then expect to pay a pretty penny for them.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    The GSi Recaro was an OEM seat designed by Recaro. It was used for the GSI and older Audi S and RS4, it wasn't an off the shelf seat they used

    The corsa vxr recaro's are based on the sportster cs seats but are not exactly the same, a few varients to the 2 and height being one of them, side bolster height, raising mechanism, fittings/runners etc, also the corsa seat is only emborided with recaro not VXR.....

    Three sets of the corsa vxr interior have sold on ebay in as many months - they tend to go for around a grand. There is a set on there at the moment - however, expect the rears not to fit.

    were they used in the old S3s too cos my mates seats look identical to the GSi ones apart from having blue alcantara in the middle?
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
