Replace seats with new or recover?

Advice please.

The seats in my 944S2 need to be recovered (front faces only).  The leather faces have shrunk & cracked.  Quoted $800 in full, flash, Germanic perforated leather.  The seats work & there are no real issues with them other than the re upholstery requirements.

I am thinking though is it better to invest that money in some newer more modern reclining seats. (don't really need them to be powered, just have to recline & be comfortable).  Emphasis on usability as a daily rather than as a race seat.  Must be leather - don't want cloth or Alcantera.

I really like the Recaro Sportster CS type seat.  Anyone have any recommendations that aren't ridiculously/ hideously/ horribly expensive? 

again thankyou for your advice.

800 aint taking you anywhere in Recaro land for seats.. go with the original at those dollars… 

Are the S2 seats comfy and supportive?


Same as what's in a 964. IMO very nice seats. every single person has sat in my car has complimented the seats. I can do 2-3 hour trips no issues. 

I would be reupholstering the seats
