    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.

    Status is not comfortable. It looks good but not very comfortable at all.
    The other is the Recaro rz. It's big with the rx7 guys. Those are nice but $2k per seat is expensive. I do like them very much though.

    I'm so looking for a totaled car with the cf seats. If one comes up I will buy for sure. I think I can sell the rest of the parts and get most of my money back if not all. I'll let you know if one hits the salvage auction. I have friends in car business and they are looking for one for me.

    This one might be too tall for the spider. It's Recaro spg. I think you may need Recaro pp. i was thinking black but I thought red because if I liked it a lot I thought I will get it black/tan leather reupholstered. We'll see.
