Default Can seats be recertified?

Im going to look at Sparco TEC seats in a couple hours and the certification expires at the end of 2012. Does anyone know if an expired FIA rating can be renewed?

I have never heard of anything being recertified, and google agrees with me.

Just jew the guy down on price because they are only good for two years.

He wants 700 for them, im gonna offer him 6 if i like them. Ill prob go up to 640 but i can get brand new ones for 250 more so they need to be in good condition.

I would go with new ones if they are only $250 more. $700 is a fair bit for seats that only have two seasons left on them.

Ouch. When already spending that much, I would have gone with the extra $250 for the extra years.

I figure 2 seasons will give me enough to properly learn my car and get a real seat to compete with.
