what do you prefer? i love the winged si seats but are like a huge barrier between the front and back of the car. where as the recaros are supporting and sporty but nice and thin at the top.

what do you all think?

Out of the two Si winged.

They hug you well too and i love the shoulder supports at the top. Depends what the rest of your interior is,if you stick RS Recaros in the the doorcards and rear bench dont match the seats.

Your choice at the end of the day :)

Yeah i'd agree with tony

The Si seats are nice to look at but Recaro's hold you better and still look Dappa.

oi foo'.

you not seen my car :lol: you've been bitch in the back enough in it. the whole lot matches, doorcards and all :P

depends how you drive your car - if you rag it and do many country lane thrashes, Recaros. if you drive any distance and enjoy having 'a back' then Si seats.

after long distance drives in the recaros i feel fine, infact i'd go as far as to say they are comfier on a long drive than the seats that were in my 2i by a long way

Never sat in Recaro's so I cant really comment, but i dont really find the Si seats that comfortable, more of a good look seat than something thats comefortable, but then that just might be me as I think my back is fucked.

I haven't driven in recaro's before, but the Si seats are fine to me and the only justification i could find to spending that much changing seats would be image and originality. I'm sure they're a better seat, but my seats are comfy enough for me. Wouldn't mind a bit of leather caressing my buttocks though *Alan Partridge mode....*

the reason im considering changing is that the si speats literally touch in the middle, meaning those in the back cant see sweet f.a, and mine being a 3 door makes it even worse, and also i would prefer grey rather than blue pattern

i've never been in recaros in a fiesta. but i find the Si seats very comfortable. think its because i'm not exactly skinny or owt. they seem to hug pretty well, never slid out of them or owt.
and they look the part
