    As it states I searched the forum but didn't find anything

    I have come across some OEM Recaro seats that were in a 1984-1989 MR2
    My seats are beat up I was wondering if these seats would bolt in, at least 3 of the 4 holes?

    Why don't you try to swap the rails over that yours are on ? Allthough I think the MR2 rails/seats must be smaller.

    Easiest is to bolt the seats to your rails, or have new brackets welded on which is expensive

    I bought the seat but only 2 holes line up. I ended up swapping the rails it's was worth the hassle the seats looks awesome.

    Time to put up some pics.
    The 162 seats aren't great, I wanted leather MR2 seats but ended up settling for some from a 182 which was a massive improvement and by using drivers seat backs I was able to electrify both seats

    I'll be taking pictures this weekend. Before a final tear down and sending the car off to paint.
    On the 182 3 of the 4 holes line up right?

    No, wasn't even close. We stripped the rails and welded the old feet to the new rails as they were too different
