Do you daily drive it? what are your thoughts on long trips on them?
Absolutely, best part of my day x2, almost wish I lived further from work!
Haven't done any seriously long drives but for me the Recaros are great. They feel very firm but they are comfortable. I have a mate who is a bit wider than me and he doesn't like them as they squeeze him a bit too much. Suspension is firm but surprisingly compliant. Road noise can be a bit harsh depending on the surface. Recommend you take one for a decent drive to see how they feel.
As for the clutch, yes bit tricky at first but like any new car once you get used to it, piece of cake. I run in extreme mode which requires very little throttle pedal before engaging the clutch. Problem is getting in another manual and looking like a numpty as you stall or rev to hard looking for the clutch!
