Recaros are in! Super happy with them. 

Quite straightforward to fit, though having no roof helps when getting them in and out!

Not sure on the proper name for these so they shall now be known as the Recaro 'GP2esque' seats. 

 

Unpopular opinion but I much prefer them to the CS ones 😳

If I didn’t have the seats I’ve got, I’d definitely have those but my ocd would need the rears to match and they are rarer than rocking horse poo !

Didn’t know they did rear GP2 seats Ian?🤣

I can agree and disagree on matching seats...

i am considering buying just 1 bucket just for me as it’s my car!? wife only ever drove it 3 times and all occasions was definitely not by choice! 

Can’t delete rears just in case and wouldn’t without fitting strut brace which I cannot for golf clubs?!

The answer to that Ian is to have no rear seats! 🤪

 

They're not actually GP2 seats @essjay_jcw, they were available as an option with matching rears in the JCW.

I'd have to have 2 matching buckets if it were me! If you got some buckets you'd probably be okay with how the rear seats looked 🤔

I’m not fussed if they matched the backs tbh! My back seats haven’t been up for weeks coz never use them and leave down for golf clubs going in and out plus better noise!

I would still go for just a drivers seat if one came up coz as usual it’s down to more expense and as you know there are quite a few things on the list before seats!!!

No one would notice with the seats down and the golf sticks in! 

 

I used to do that in my Cooper S so I could have more exhaust noise 😂

 

Yes! I think we've all got lists as long as our arms 😳

Who knew that you could get power readouts through MINI Connected! I've seen it in various BMWs but didn’t realise that the 2nd Gen MINIs had it too.

Now I can really see how much power I'm not using when driving to and from work! 😂
