Post Do Boxster seats fit a 928?
I've been offered a superb pair of Boxster Recaro seats which I was thinking about replacing my slightly dated looking original ones with.

My question is, as the Boxster seats are genuine Porsche items, with they fit straight in? A couple of people have suggested that they should but, I just want to check before I spend my cash!

Do you know if it was a straight forward job or did runners need to be changed over?

He never said anything about customizing anything. With that, I assume its a direct bolt in.

Speaking of seats....

I have a Nissan Titan....It is my 2nd one...I love the seats....They look like they belong in a sports car....(I guess you know where I am going with this)

I have not measured yet....but "eyeball", they look like they are about the same size of the seats in my 928, once you remove the large "truck" base....

I'm just thinkin.......

Any comments? Too Ghetto?

Ok..never posted a forum pic, so here goes...

This is a shot of the seats, as best as I could get with my phone. Black leather with red stitching...of course I would not want to get a set with the Pro4X logo on it....

I am going to measure this weekend, just for sh**s and giggles....
