I think black would be a better colour choice. Bet the weight savings and hip hugging make the swap worthwhile though. I have used Recaro SPG and Pole position seats in other cars with great success.

The feel is nice, it's comfortable but looks way out of place.

I did buy Ferrari cf seats from eBay Germany but it never showed up. It was a hassle getting my money back from eBay. 2 months later they did refund. So I bought a set of these. I had Recaro on my M3 race car before and was always happy with it. In the 355 it looks borrowed unfortunately. I think I may go back to original tan until I find a nice set cf seats for a reasonable price. That may never happen as people are asking $9k for a set nowadays. Lascuderia has a set tan/black he asked $15k. Wtf??
So for now it's either Recaros or back to the girly tan which my wife daughters loves because it looks like my 6 year old daughters Barbie car.... That alone makes me hate tan even more my son however loves the red seats....
It seems the entire family is torn apart over this one.

I like the red and tan better. I prefer seats that are more adjustable also.

I like it but would like to see it in black against the tan.
Curious what model of Ricardo seat is that and the cost ?
I have a spider and thinking this will not work in a spider ?

Yep. Looks way out of place in a road car.

Original seats are way better in every way unless it's a 355CH or was originally delivered with those seats.

I think something like this would look and work the best:

or:

(I would have the fixed back Recaro's recovered in leather...)
