they have 2 central mounting points on the sides, then points front and rear. I found a pair at the P&P and got really excited, 'cause they fit me. But I couldn't seee how to make them fit the CAR.

And I seem to remember that VW used the same mounting system as Audi...

fwiw,

I have some Recaros that I was told came from a GLI. I don't know what year or any details though, sorry. They came with Recaro brackets that bolted right to the 02 sliders. They sit a bit too high for me (I'm 6' 2") but otherwise I think they are great. Good luck!

If they are Trophies like the ones in the picture below then they are "real" Recaros ie. no custom VW mounting points. Some of the other 16VGLI/GTI seats can be made to fit(can't anything) but not as well. Trophies came in 16V Sciroccos and 87-88 GLI’s and some 89-92 GTI 16Vs depends on the day in the factory it seems. Side bolster foam was available from VW at one time but it seems that they are now NLA, seat covers are still available but for $$ as usual. Good luck.
