American MINI fans are a happy bunch, as one of the items on their wish list will now be granted. MINI USA is adding Recaro seats to the options list after years of requests. The grippier and better looking chairs come in only one configuration – heated and finished in black Dinamica with Leather.

Known as option 4FA, the Recaros are available for the hatchback, Clubman, Coupe and Roadster, but not the Countryman and Convertible. Ticking the box will cost Americans $3,000 on Cooper models and $2,750 on Cooper S and JCW types. The option will be available from next March.
