How are your Recaros holding up?

Searching potential purchases and noticed on some used 1LE's the drivers outside seat and back bolsters look pretty crushed already on some low mileage vehicles.

Cars with <5,000 miles and the seats look like +50,000.

How do yours look?

Mine look good, but I'm fairly slim at 5-10 175 lbs.

Any seat will look like that if you don't practice proper ingress and egress. If you're always hitting the bolsters with your butt and rubbing on them you'll wear them out.

+1. Cannonballing into the seat will trash them in a hurry. Attentive ingress/egress will let the seat last longer than the life of the car.

WTF brother 1LE owner. 5'10" 155lbs?
You need to come over to my place.
I'll fatten that ass of yours up with some Greek Food.
I'm 5'10".
The last time I saw 155lbs was in the 8th grade.
200lbs now.

I've learned to be an acrobat in order to avoid crushing my bolsters in or out. It's good for your core muscles if you can master the skill!

I'm just picturing trying to do this in my garage with limited space and a door that's only partially open.

Over 15k miles and the seats are more comfortable now. My legs used to fall asleep after 4 hours but now they've settled in. Great on the track but a little tough for long trips. No visible wear at this point.

I do this every day in my parking deck at work. I also have a steep driveway that I have to park on usually. Think partially open door, and getting out of the seat uphill and then pirouetting out. Getting in is the reverse and you back that ass up like a pro in short order.

I am 5'11 210 and move like a ballerina now.

My seats also look great. Just watch dragging against them when you get in and out. Especially if you have jeans on, the rivets LOVE to scratch steering wheels and seat bolsters.

You'd be amazed at the amount of food I can put away.... just makes larger poops. I also have a pretty physical job and no one in my family is overweight. It sure helps on a go-kart.

I bet!
A Physical job does help tremendously.
I worked Concrete form work for better than ten years.
Not only do you stay lean but you keep and build some muscle as well.
