Sport seats for base seats.

I don't know if anyone would have any interest in this, but with no last car bigger people would trade their recaros, which were the best factory seat option, for the base seats because they fit them better.

Would anyone within a 3 hour radius of East Moline, Illinois be wanted to trade their sport seats for my base seats + cash on my end? I would be looking for the tan color specifically and only the fronts. I feel like it doesnt hurt to try. If interested shoot me a pm. Thanks.

There are a number of online sites that offer either parts or entire vehicles for sale or auction. Maybe peruse those for a candidate to buy for under $1000 or so, then get a local salvage yard to take the car with the base seats for free while you get the sport seats. A quick search showed the majority of wreaked Giulia’s seem to have red interiors...not sure if that was a quirk of the location of the auction house, their preference, or if a red interior reduces tire grip...or causes the drive to go nuts.

Wreaked sounds even worse than wrecked.
Never knew that about the red interior. Red mist inducing?

What does your SSN have to do with anything? Coming from the focus st car scene, people traded seats all the time with cash on the end of base seats. Doesn't seem so far fetched to me. Bigger guys might not like the confined feeling of the sport seats.

So again, what does your SSN have to do with trading car parts?

It means if I'm giving him the spectacular sport seats for the stock ones, i may as well give him everything. It was a joke, take it easy, lighten up.
