    Nice. That's about as conclusive as you can get, short of the seats having "Recaro" stamped right on the leather.

    Congrats on getting your replacements!

    I recall on my factory tour that they showed us a "company inside a company" that was making the seats on-site. The tour guide said that they leased out space on the factory floor so the third party could make the seats right there and save any shipping costs from another site. They never did say who this company was. Could it be Recaro? Or are the seats now being made elsewhere and shipped to the factory?

    I think the next gen seats come from outside. That was part of the problem when are cars were delayed. Supplier problem then a strike at the port.
