    996 GT3 seats fit Cayman platform?

    Was at my local (Palm Springs, CA) P-dealer today asking if 996 GT3 seats fit Caymans or 997 platform and tech didn't know. Has not tried yet. Anyone out there know answer? I'm looking at getting a Cayman and love the comfort of the GT3 seats.

    That's the short answer.

    The longer answer is that:
    a) You forego the additional safety of thorax airbags.
    b) "Street legality" is open to question if an OEM safety feature is disabled, but that does not appear to bother a lot of people. At least, not before the accident.
    c) You have to find a way of programming out the "defective airbag" warning light.

    I like to buy those nice Recaro GT3 seats with red handles, but cant find them...if anyone knows who has them pls put a link or PM me .. thanks a lot.

    The one advantage of the GT3 seats over other Recaro seats (Profi, SPG, etc.) is that you don't have to drill holes into the body of the car to install a 6 point harness. The GT3 seats have a bar that lays across underneath that the harness attaches to. Make sure to disconnect the battery before installing the seats (you can do it yourself) to avoid accidental airbag deployment.

    At the Racers Group, call and ask for Austin. He can help you out.
