Default Fake Recaro Pole Positions?

Hey Guys,

I need some help. I'm going to buy some Recaro Pole Position FIA and I'm worried about getting fake ones. Kid tells me he got them as a extra with his new car purchase. Has no receipts or nothing.

I attached some pictures. I asked him to get closer to the recaro stitching. He has all the serial numbers and FIA stickers. I spent hours and realized fake ones can replicate these stickers.

I'm confused as to why the 5 look like 6 (on serial number). Does anyone else have Recaro pole positions, and COULD PLEASE verify the stitching and stickers.

Thanks guys your help is much appreciated.

Looks real to me.

I donít think there are Pole positions reps very very hard to come by.

It looks damn real to me.
even has the hand written manufactures date
which matches European hand writing
as there 9 look like g's and 7's have a dash threw them.
Just like my Recaros.
