Thanks.
There is a system set in place from BMW for the airbags when fitting JCW seats to the first gen R50/R52/R53 ,you need to sign a disclaimer to say you are switching off the seat airbags and BMW provide a code to then swith the seat airbags off and allthis is logged at BMW against your car

Hi
The shipping cost would be £655.00 due to the size and weight

Hi Chris,
I am looking to fit the R56 JCW/Recaro seats into my R53.(with some modification).
I am in Australia (no vat?), what is the price + shipping?
Is there an alternate (cheaper) shipping method?
Thanks,
Steve.

Hi Steve,
The R56 JCW seats are only listed for the R56, i will only supply parts and accessories that are made and designed for the models by BMW/MINI
BMW spend milions every year on R & D and test fit every parts for months to make sure that it fits and works as it was intended to,if any part does not meet BMW/MINI level of atandards it will not be released to the general public for fitment,
when its down to the safety of you or any other customer on MINI2 or in the dealership i will always stick to the recommendations of BMW and MINI,
Chris

Hi
The R56 JCW seats don't have an adjustable height adjuster, when the seats are fitted they are bolted to a rail which has different height settings front and rear

Hi Chris,
Thanks for the advice. I ordered the seats & fittings direct from Recaro as they don't come with the airbags, just like the original JCW/Sparco seats for the R53. Problem solved.
Thanks again,
Steve.

Hi Chris

Forgive my stupidity, but are the seats you have on offer the same as the seats I am after HERE?

Cheers

Speeding has never killed anybody, suddenly becoming stationary... that's what gets you!

~g~ where the Recaro JCW version or the Recaro CS Sportster version.

Would be intresting to know if they have the airbags working.

Plus I know Chris would not supply these on the basis they were not going in an R56 for safety reasons.
