I've decided to take my recaro interior out as its getting battered.

Will these fit?
I will make brackets, more talking about the width and hight etc. I can't measure my Mk3 as its at the garage!

It depends on the height of the runners. The runners on the standard 2.8i seats are 3 and a half inches high (from where they bolt to the floor to where they bolt to on the seat).

Style wise, just a shame about the harness cutouts as they tend to spoil the look of the BB seats IMHO. Theyd look the part in a stripped out car with harnesses, full roll cage and no rear seats but not in an otherwise standard classic.
