MINI is finally offering Recaro seats as an option for their various models, but only in one configuration. The Recaro seat option will come in black Dinamica and leather only, but they are heated.

They will be available for all the MINI models except for the Countryman and Convertible. Pricing is set at $3,000 on Cooper models, while Cooper S and JCW owners get a slight price discount at $2,750. The option will be made available starting with March 2012 build vehicles. Recaro branding looks to be absent from the MINI seats, an unfortunate move given that most of the fun in ordering them comes from having the RECARO lettering stitched into the seat itself.
