    Very sweet! Now riddle me this, outside of the fact that MINI says you give up side airbags with the Recaro's are there any additional worries, inspection maybe?

    I've always found them to be a great addition to people's rides but I guess I've never heard anyone throw out the pros and cons.

    Keep us posted:arf:

    Sweet. Did you go through a dealer in the UK? I know MINIusa won't let any dealers order them, even though there's a "how-to install" .pdf for the retrofit kit out for it. Grrr!!!

    Let me know how installation goes. Also, if you don't mind sharing, what was the damage?

    Guess what I'm doing tomorrow morning....

    :D

    Thaaat's right... they're in. PLUS, my rollbar came in. Now, I just gotta figure out which coilovers to go with and I'm done. (harnesses are even sitting in a box)

    For those that asked questions....

    Just plug and play... no disabling or losing airbags or heat sensors. One of the advantages of getting factory JCW seats.

    My cost was 3700 US. (actually cheaper than normal recaros.)

    I'll post pics tomorrow.
