Weight of Recaros

I was wondering if there's already a thread or if anyone has info on certain weight deductions.
Someone recently asked how much lighter or what the seat weighed compared to the GT leather seats with electric and heater.

I don't know, but I swap a heated leather GT seat for a boss recaro, and I guess it weighs about 58-62 lbs. That's just a guess. I would say it is at least 10 lb heavier than the recaro probably not more than 15 heavier...

Like NewBoss stated the Recaros are 46 lbs, I took out my power, heated, leather seats, 63 lbs each, installed Recaro passenger and Sparco Ergo with sparco floor, sliders and side mounts, combined 79 lbs, Sparco 6 point harness, 8 lbs per set, cooltech clips and eyebolts for sub belts 3lbs. Total 98 lbs in, 126 lbs out= 28 lb weight savings.
