    *sigh* Jersey Shore, let me clarify this for you. "It's not self preference, it's sheer ignorance and a sheep like mentality that makes one choose a $3500 seat. Why must (this particular) Recaro owner feel like they must defend their choice? You spent your money like an idiot. Period."

    But see, I would never say anything like that because we are different people and I can't put myself in your head, much the same way you cannot for those who did not choose Recaro. It's presumptuous and arrogant.

    Re: recaro or not recaro ?

    more like spot on, as the truth always hurts, and the biggest lies are the ones we tell ourselves. they don't even have a name for your seat, other than the fact they are known affectionately as "park bench seats"...or "the seats that nobody wanted". 70k price tag, and $3,400 is a deal breaker? you got a base modle cts with a motor upgrade. lol i'll sleep fine tonight, how about you?

    ( way back when i had a 1990 5.0 mustang saleen, and it had recaros. this is when i understood about how just a set of seats makes the ENTIRE difference )

    I have read every single post in this thread and everyone is either making excuses for their seat or complaining about them. I think Cadillac should read each comment and realize that the two seats they offer are not the best for this superior set of wheels and they should redesign the seats without any compromises. I have been n many Audi, BMW and they don't have discussions like this because their seats are designed with support and comfort.

    I don't normally do this, but wow you're being an *******. I've been posting on these boards since 2006 and I've never seen anyone be as arrogant and *******-ish as you. To you, your opinion is fact and your'e actually ignorant enough to believe it.

    Cadillac made them an option for a reason, but I can see that you'll never be able to grasp why.

    Enjoy your day.

    Relax, young man. Why are you trying to alienate a large group of forum members? You come across angry and/or frustrated. As one of the other members has said, we use our cars for different purposes, so that accounts for configuration preferences. Generally speaking, this is a knowledgeable group, that respects others' opinions and tries to help those with questions or problems in enjoying these magnificent cars.

    Jud. You are so correct. People like what they like. But to some their way is the only way. I bought a wagon because I need a wagon. Plus it looks badass. I drive my car everyday. Average speed 26 mph. Average mpg 15.6. I don't need Recaro's at those blistering speeds. I have nothing against Recaro's. Just not for me. We still live in America. Freedom of Choice. We all love our cars. Don't knock someone because they don't like what you like.

    Why? Because I love this forum and most users here are good people. Why else? Because I've owned probably 3 times the amount of V cars you have and that entitles me to 3 times the amount of opinions that you have. Lastly? I'll probably own another V car at some point.

    How dare you! How dare you buy a version of the car that is practical and not 100% performance oriented. How dare you buy a car with seats that belong on a bicycle. How dare you use your car for anything other than racing around the streets or track strapped into Recaro racing seats throwing caution into the wind. How dare you enjoy your car!!! You sir, are a disgrace.

    [/massive joke]

    Enjoy your wagon, hell of a car to tool around in with kids in the back seat and your bags from Home Depot in the back. Congrats.

    Back on topic. I like my Recaros, if for no other reason than the cooled seat option here in TX. I'm 6'2" 225lbs and fit fine.

    your reality is more skewed than i suspected. neither one of those remarks (in bold) make any effin sense what-so-ever in reasons for buying this car. the 6 cyl would have been a better buy. retard. base model seats and base model usage is all you are utilizing. the bragging rights are left to those that bought this car with every intention of driving it to it's limits.(street or track) if not, really, whats the point? so your friends and neighbors have a reason to acknowledge you? no need to respond, it's as clear as day.
    as far as your 3 v remark. i've had 2 (1st gen and this) and a base model 03 cts. so 3 cts's for me. i'll be humble about the rest of my past vehicles. your in a fight you'll never win, so please, for the sake of this thread, bow out gracefully.

    Re: recaro or not recaro ?

    Why do you want to fight? People here love their cars. Why call people retards for their choices because they are not your own. You my friend have a skewed outlook. Hence the name "Dead Baby". Be happy driving your car to the limit. Let us be happy with ours. Your damn right I brag about my car. I paid for it not you. I'll drive it however I want. In the left lane with the blinker on. Hell, maybe when I get to old i"ll drive it through the front of a store. It's mine not yours.

    Absurd argument on resale. There *may* be one or more than one person/s out there, chances are you won't find him. I'll guarantee you that there is not a person out there willing to pay you what you paid the dealer for the seats. And until someone can show me that they are getting x% of their money back, I'll be firmly in the camp that you won't recoup the cost. My opinion is based upon my experience too, not some fictional person that *may* exist.
    Well, I flew to TX to get my '09. It was the closest of 4 Vs available spec'd to my choosing. Had to have a manual, had to have a moonroof, had to be black, had to have Recaros. Period.

It only takes one person as is the guy who bought mine without. As far as trade in, forget about it. Dealers hate these cars and dont want to give any money regardless of options. I have a ton of close contacts and no one wanted it. It had 2K miles on it and everyone offered below wholesale in the mid 40"s LOL... I was forced to sell private party. Just a personal experience. I find it hard to believe people are arguing over a $3K option on a $70K car. Bottom line is you either like them or dont. Drive both and make the choice. Ive had both and prefer the Recaro's as I use the car as it was intended. The cooloing system is absolutely awesome as well
    Excellent post!

    Every single post? Really? That's a lie. My Recaros are perfect for my V. Period.
