D2 A8 Sport Recaros..

Hey All, just bored browsing..

As seen in these two pics, why if they come from an A8 did they have reclining levers (for 2 door cars) in place..?



HPsauce

Because they are not OEM. So not originally from an A8.

So what did Audi steal these from to fit into the A8 then..?

I can only find info about these as being A8 recaros.. They may be in something else, but they are always referred to as Audi A8 D2 Recaros..

I've never seen an A8 fitted with anything remotely like that as original equipment.
So they are something else or mislabelled.
Throw us a link to look at.

A8 Recaros will mostly be in S8's and fully electric and NO Recaro badging.

Or is the A8 a reference to something else, not an Audi A8?

Evos come with factory fitted recaro's. Evos are 4 door but they still have the tilt lever fitted on them.
To back benny up I have seen these in a8's and been referred to as a8 recaro's. Lee whitehead and myself were actually talking about them on Sunday and how they used to get pinched like the current b7 recaro's!!

Quite possibly, but what does that prove?

perhaps because that's what they are called - by Recaro themselves?

Still think they're nothing whatsoever to do with the Audi D2 A8 and are not OEM equipment if fitted to one; see this picture:

Yeah, pretty sure they have nothing to do with Audi.  Remember seeing some of these in Golfs back in the day.  Awesome looking seats.

You know, I have never thought about that.. These would just be named by Recaro as A8s..

I do feel silly. But as a defence, I'm all Audi haha, so when I see A4 Paper, its all i think..

I think seeing these fitted to The red RS above (member here I think) I just Ass U and Me'd!

Thanks

The Recaro's from my 2002 FL S8 have the same labelling as this...



But those full on Recaro don't look to be factory seats.

recaro a8's are originally fitted to old school porsche's as an aftermarket oem upgrade.

And so do mine. Never looked down there.   Discreet though, as you would expect.

I have been offered 2 sets of these and was so tempted,i love them but 2200 just for front seats and then retrimming is to much so early in the s4 build
