2015 Ford Mustang GT: I'd Skip the Recaros
December 26, 2014
They look cool, have side airbags in them and have the benefit of being covered under the factory warranty.
I have a thin build and I fit just fine in them. But here's why I'd never get them if it was my car.
Opting for the Recaros means you have to skip out on heated and cooled seats, plus the power adjustment with memory for the driver's seat. I would use these features a lot more than the seat supporting me at severe lateral G's. Now admittedly, I'm not an enthusiast driver.
Judging by the photo below, the standard seats seem like they have plenty of side bolstering.
I'm sure the more spirited drivers on the staff will disagree with me. But I just can't get over the fact that I'd be paying more to get less.
What do you think? Are the Recaros worth the trade off?
