Can anyone identify these seats? 1978 633csi British Model

Post by Mamod17 » Sat Oct 13, 2018 2:35 am

HI there, I'm looking to identify these seats/trim.

They're from a 1978 633csi UK spec originally auto - now in Australia - Vin search shows up nothing.

Not sure if they're BMW, Recaro or Scheel or something else.

Are they original spec? Trim looks like cloth. Both front and back trim match.

Any help appreciated!

You could remove the back seats and see if there’s a build sticker in there. I wouldn’t have thought they are original, but if the rear seats fit, who knows? Must be from a Beemer I reckon.

They look like Recaro LS seats to me. I had a set that I recently sold. Apparently, it was a big thing in the 80's to swap out the factory seats for these according to some Porsche guys I know. They gave me this site

Try this link - there's a Recaro crib-sheet half way down.
