    Black Recaro sr3 or Red Bride Cugas

    So heres my dilemma.

    I have black recaro sr3s and some guy offered me a straight trade for red bride cuga(brand new)

    i bought my sr3s for 1.2k and cugas are going for about 1.4k new.

    recaros look like

    and 2 of the bolters are slightly damaged.. these will look brand new after a good clean though.

    bride cugas look like


    im planning to chuck these in my burgundy(soon to be evo x red) prelude.

    what do you guys suggest
    'I DO NOT SEASON STEAK! Start seasoning it and before you know it? You're french! NO! I go to my personal butcher and say, 'give me a piece of meat that been sawn off an animal'. And they show me a picture of a crying cow with a gaping hole in its side. n I say 'Did the animal cry when u sawed my piece off it?' And the...you show me a ziploc bag full of cow tears, n I Say 'Rub That On My Steak! Let That Be My Seasoning'

    I'm sure they are both great seats, but I've only ever liked recaros

    I think the recaro's look better quality and more comfortable... but that's just from looking at those pictures.

    Well I've always prefered Recaros, but the Brides are more racer thanks to their wider shoulder flares. Obviously one is more discreet than the other too, so it all depends on how fully sick your car is to be.

    The real reason to change would be if the Brides were more comfortable for you. If so then go them 100%, but if not, then do not.

    I agree with knickers, they both look good but go for the more comfortable one imo.

    recaros... the bride ones are too much of a "look at me" thing. recaros just discretely do their job and look damn sexy doing it

    depends on SOOOOO many factors not covered here.

    Whats your build so far? Obvious or sleeper? Or what is it going to end up like more to the point.

    What body shape are you? Which one fits YOU better?

    Etc etc etc!
