just wondering how easy is it to fit recaros out of a gti into a 1.4 mk4 golf, is it just a case of bolting the new ones in place of the old seats?

where is the best place to buy recaros? breakers?

thanks

seat experts, are there any spacers under the seats to leavel them up? Both of my front seats titl towards the doors. I know its a lazy question! I just wanted to know prior to taking them out and watching the seat frame disintegrate in front on me!

Thanks

LOL, i thought that when i put my sport leathers on the floor, but thats the way they are!!!, when you fit the seats in youll notice that they are level, one runner on the sill side is slightly higher up compared to the runner in the transmission tunnel.

Keep checking on Ebay I got a mint set 3 door (even harder to get than 5 door) for ?330 not a bad price I thought considering some breakers want ?400 for shabby ones.

Good luck mate

I would suggest waiting till the show season as I'm kicking myself now as I saw recaro seats at GTi International last year for ?250 and stupidly even though I had the cash I didn't buy some ! I ended up shelling out a fair bit more for the set on ebay the other day, all beit they were mint and had the rear armrest.

Just bought some last week, ?400.00 and the guy fitted them as well, need a good clean but they are mint.

If interested email me and i can give you the guys number as he breaks Golfs and is based in Chelmsford, i am not connected to this company but would reccommend them.

You could always by my spare set of electric Recaros?
