    Even though the new RS is measurably better than the 2 in many ways for me i find the previous model more desirable.
    Looks better, sounds better and was a limited run iirc thus making prices stay high, where they cant sell these quick enough before the next boat arrives so resale is worse that a TN Magna.
    Which only reaffirms how much of a bargain they are.

    A bit like an 35 GTR being "better" than a 34 but i still desire a 34 more.

    Anyone with a RS able to confirm for me if the Front seats have a quick "tilt forward" lever or mechanism so they could be used in a two door vehicle ???

    Yeah Id say they at best would be ST recaros? The shell recaros from the RS Ive seen go for around $1000 each.

    Previous gen RS was two door, those would be the seats to chase?

    That's what I was thinking also. No way in the world you would get the current model seats at that price.

    Would prefer a more "plush" seat, plus they are height adjustable. Eg. I rather pay the mythical $350/pair (shit I'd pay $500 for a pair of LZ Recaros from an ST) than $1000 the seat lowering kit from the UK. Then I can put my shell's into storage and have seats that can go up and down and have lumbar adjustment.

    It could be because I'm not used to seat but I tend to get a sore back on the shells when driving longer than an hour.

    Got a feeling they'll be interchangable as it's all an LZ, shit even the steering wheels, dash etc look identical.

    They complain in the US about the basic recaro (non shell style that they get) seats being too high even at their lowest settings just FYI

    How tall are you MZ? I struggle for fit in a ST with the seats even at full low etc.

    Not tall, average height. I guess I could just track down an ST at a dealer sit in it and see. I do know that in the RS with helmet I stand no chance of fitting in.

    Messaged the seller, they confirmed that they are infact ST seats,
    They had the RS seats pictured for the ST ad.. Fuckers....
    Still, just looked for others and The ST seats look just as good - and $399 for a set

    My actual preference is for a Pair of Factory Ralliart / EVO Pajero seats,
    They are similar to the EVO Lancer seats, but have the flip forward function (and Pajero bases etc)
    Cheap as chips in Japan and the UK. $tupid dollars here in Australia
