I went with a set of Recaro SE's, but I took it a step further. I didn't like the way the cloth seats looked with the rest of the 02. So, I had them reupholstered by changing the side bolsters and the back of the backrest to leatherette (couldn't afford Recaro leather). So the center portion of the seats were cloth and the sides were leatherette. I also matched the the bench seat so that the extreme ends and the center of the seat is leatherette, while the rest is cloth. I think it matches better now with the rest of the interior.
I did pay about the same price as Tom (~$750.00 plus ~$100.00 per bracket). You could get a pair of Flofits that will come out cheaper, and the price retailers quote you are with the brackets (FYI, the SE's are the cheapest among the Recaro line). I have to say that these seats are great and worth the investment. They offer excellent back support and it accomodates large passengers, like myself. The only thing I don't like about them is that the letterings on the backrest are really big and white so I tend to be careful where I park.
