2013 Ford Focus ST: Recaros. Are They Worth It?

These Recaro sport seats are part of the Focus ST's $4,840 202A equipment group which also includes a pile of other features (Sony audio with 10 speakers, 8.0-inch LCD touchscreen, nav, dual climate control and more). That's the only way to get them.

The Focus ST's base fabric seats lack the Recaros leather, bold colors and aggressive bolsters. Is it worth it to nearly five grand to get the better seats even if you don't want the other bits?

For me that's a tough call and one I can't make without sitting in the base seats, which I haven't done. What about you?
