Are Recaros from a MK2 a direct bolt in for a 4KQ or do You have to modify the bases? I have the cloth with quattro script in 4KQ but I remember the Recaros I just had in that MK2 were much
more comfortable...thanks.

It requires the bases to be narrowed.

Either manual or power- you need to narrow the rear sliders. The power bases are nice- you can run the stock MKII harness back to the battery and it looks totally factory. I had a set in my 85 UrQ, which has the same seat bases as the 4K/CGT

yeah, i never got around to sport seats in any of my cars, although the B3 CQ seats look like sport seats. The seat portion seems to be a bit short though. I miss the Helios seats i had and the Mk2 GTI high bolsters i had... But i sold both sets...
