Lightbulb Recaro Office Chair

I'm a big fan of my M3 chairs, but I really hate my office chair. I was looking at the Recaro office chairs and they looked pretty conferrable and stylish. I've used all thinks of chairs but the one I'm using right now really just isn't for me or my back. this is what the chair looks like;



My favorite of the many that I've had has been the Steel Case custom



But now that I'm getting a new chair I might as well try something new.
But does form really meet function w/t these Recaros chairs?


This is a link to Recaros office chair site
http://www.recaro.com/index.php?id=5668&region=3&L=2



Open to suggestions or to other chair companies, like this one http://www.officechairsoutlet.com/product-p/b2007.htm
Keep in mind these chairs are way overprices for what they are.
Just doing my re

Thanks
, Saeed.

I say do it, get one of the seats that are being employed in endurance racing like the PROFI
They're made to be somewhat comfortable to the driver for at least 4 hour stints so try one out at a race shop first and then think about it more

Or go with one of the Ferrari chairs or other brand for baller status

If you are sitting in front of the computer all day, you are probably better off getting a proven ergonomic office chair like Herman Miller or Steelcase. If you are an executive sitting at your desk watching TV or playing video games, then these race chairs probably work for you.

ahahahaa I'm sure the accountants would approve
Get them to write it off as an office expense
Should I get a badass mod for my car or just get the chair..

That's how I'm thinking from now on.
hmmm should I eat food today or should I just get new tires.

ahhhaaaa ....

Herman Miller Aeron chair FTW. Quite possibly the most ergonomic chair I have the pleasure of using at home/the office.

I was going to say this and post a pic, but looks like it's been done.

I've had the pleasure (yes literally pleasure) of sitting in a Recaro Sportster CS office chair a couple weeks back, and it literally is the most comfortable office chair I have ever sat in. I would highly recommend it to anybody who is serious about their comfort at work.

Since these chairs (and their racing seats) are designed by Orthopedic doctors, you'll be guaranteed to have a great day at work

I bought a Recaro office chair 4 years ago because every other office chair I'd ever had made my back pain worse (spondylotisthesis). It's a wonderful chair, and my back never hurts at the office anymore. Plus, it's cool because its evil twin is in the race car.

i bought this through csn store . com via bing.com for 15% off I think?? Ive had it for about 6 months and here is what I can say... Get the wide of whatever you get, I have the regular and it hugs like im about to go through the twistys... I enjoy my chair, the seat itself is great, your butt wont fall asleep if you sit in it for hours. my back bothers me if I dont sit completely in the chair (you need to sit back in it like you would in your car). hope that helps also you can probably use ANY racing car seat with the rail system csn offers. it looks pretty universal. ps. lumbar support would probably help people with back issues.

Is that a signed poster of Mario Lemieux? That would be cool. Mario is by far the best hockey player to come out of North America in my times.

I'd get one of those 12-point adjustable mesh ones. They're like a grand I think.

I bought the exact one for my birthday this year and it's really comfy to sit on for long hours.

For some reason, the VA here in Seattle offers this seat to their employees at work.
