Do Evo MRs no longer come with the alcantara/leather Recaro seats?

Was just checking out the Mitsu website to see what a 2015 EvoMR has feature-wise, and was surprised to see no mention of the kickass Recaro seats my 2011 has.

When did they drop those seats?

Are the only options now the plain cloth seats, or the full-leather seats from the Touring package? And neither are Recaro?

I've noticed you have 1,000 posts so you're quite active on here. The 2015 DO NOT come with the Recaros seats.

Check out how few of those posts were made in the past year.

So is 2015 the first year without the Recaros? And why that change? It's one of the things I like most about my Evo and they get a lot of compliments from passengers, too.

2015 federal safety requirements meant Mitsu would have to redesign the seats and then pay for them to be recertified. Since 2015 is the last year for the X, they didn't feel like paying for it

2015 USDM X's won't have the awesome Recaros. Just the standard lancer seats:

Can they be bought new from Recaro somehow? Wonder how much they charge for a pair of them. Imagine some 2015 owners might go that route, as those stock Lancer seats are pretty lame.

For real, even my 09 Ralliart seats look better than those! I know from time to time you can find people selling their Recaro's on here. I'm guessing they'll be bumping up the price on those though.

Or just buy a used set from someone upgrading to Brides or something They usually go for $1k for the pair
