Hi mate cool looking car. Fitted the same seats in my gti on recaro sub frames but found they sit up to high at the front and the back dips down so my other half cant drive it. How does your sit and how did you fit them? Thanks

Stunning car mate, always loved this colour for the gti! :thumbsup:

Have you noticed any rubbing under the roof bars? Was going to put my set on this weekend, but wasn't sure if I needed to tape the panel underneath when the bracket sits? :tongueout:
