Ever wanted a set of comfortable Recaro seats in your E30? Don't want to deal with the hassle of pairing sliders with floor adapters and seat hardware etc. etc.? Well look no further the Garagistic Recaro Seat Adapters offer a bolt-in solution to mount many Recaro bottom mount seats directly to the factory E30 sliders! That's right no extra sliders or floor brackets required, simply mount our adapters to your 4 or 6 bolt bottom mount Recaro seat and then bolt them up to the factory sliders removed from your stock seats. These brackets also feature some additional rake (tilt) added to the seating position. This helps you to sit snugly in the seat with a comfortable driving position! These brackets come with all the necessary hardware for a bolt up installation on your Recaros. Drive in Italian style with Recaro seats in your E30 using the Garagistic E30 BMW Recaro Seat Adapter! This listing is for 1 kit enough to do 1 seat, please order 2 kits if you would like to do both seats.


These brackets are intended for use with most 4 or 6 bolt bottom mount Recaros. They are designed to be used with the common four-bolt pattern 406 x 297mm or 6 bolt pattern 406mm x 261mm (from the rear and front most hole). This means that these will fit on most Recaro LX, LS, SRD, SR3,4,5 and many other Recaros from VW, Mitsubishi, etc. with the bolt pattern mentioned above Mk2 VW Recaros are a popular option and these can ONLY be used on the powered versions with the removable base

These brackets will work on ALL E30 chassis utilizing the factory E30 Sliders (some early E30 models will require one bolt hole on the slider drilled out to 10mm)

General Info: This ONLY works for Recaro bottom mount reclining seats in E30's. Read entire guide before attempting to remove anything. There is a left hand and right hand seat bracket.

Step 1: Slide seat rearward to access the two front floor mounting M10 nuts, once you've removed them slide the seat forward and remove the two rear M10 bolts that mount the seat to the floor. Once they've been removed you can take the entire seat out from the cabin.

Step 2: Once the seat is out of the cabin, lay it down upside down. Remove both brackets/sliders that are mounted to the seat itself. Once they are removed now you can add the Recaro seat bracket adapters.

Step 3: You will have a left hand side and a right hand side. The side of the bracket will have two large holes, one in the front, one in the rear. The top of the bracket has 3 oval holes at the front part of it, at the rear it will have only one oval hole. Mounting them to the original seat rails is simple, the brackets mount to the front and rear tabs on the sliders via the two large side round holes on the Recaro bracket. The Recaro brackets are mounted on the outside of the seat rails 2 bracket “ears”, NOT on the inside. Once you've understood how they mount, next step is to mount them.

Step 4: Now line up your Recaro bracket with your two mounting “ears” on your slider, slide the supplied bolts with washers into the hole and then on the back of the bolt slide on your washer, then thread your nut on. Do the same process for the other side as well. Once the Recaro seat brackets are mounted up and securely fastened now it is time to bolt everything onto your Recaro seat.

Step 5: Bolt the Recaro brackets and seat rails onto the bottom of the seat itself. Fasten your nuts and bolts to the seat properly and securely. Lastly bolt your seat back into the cabin via the 2 front M10 nuts and 2 M10 rear bolts you removed from the sliders originally to mount it to the floor. Once everything mounted and secure sit in the seat and double check to make sure there is no unwanted movement from the Recaro bracket, if there is, double check your bolts to confirm that they are tightened properly.

Here at Garagistic, we have over 500 products with more than 700 total variations of those products which are produced in-house here in sunny CA. We pride ourselves in creating products from scratch out of about 75 different types of raw materials ranging from aluminum to Delrin plastic. While we do have stock of raw material, our products take time to for us produce, assemble and pack.

Free Shipping Limitations:

Free shipping is only eligible in the contiguous USA. Free shipping only applies to order that meet certain requirements set by us (and can be changed at anytime). Those requirements are currently that an order is over $300 and under the a "Dimensional package weight" of 30lbs. What this means is that roll bars, sway bars, and items we deem oversized do not ship for free. If your order is over this 30lbs rule it will not qualify for free shipping. Free shipping methods are at our discretion and CANNOT BE CHANGED. Most items will either be first class or priority USPS. Free shipping is not valid internationally and this list (but not limited to): Alaska, American Samoa, Micronesia, Guam, Hawaii, Marshall Islands, Northern, Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands. Customers will not be able to pick shipping methods (or overnight) if free shipping is selected. Qualifying order total is based on product subtotal—taxes and non-standard shipping charges are not included as a qualifying cost. You are responsible for non-standard shipping charges such as special handling surcharges and oversize fees (where indicated), Truck Freight fees, expedited shipping, hazardous materials charges, etc. Offer is subject to adjustment due to returns, cancellations, and exchanges. We have the right at anytime to revoke free shipping.

International Buyers:

Please be aware that we offer two shipping methods overseas. First class and priority flat rate envelope. Although first class is much cheaper, USPS seems to lag on delivery and there is no way to track the package once it has been dropped off.

There is a 20% restocking fee for all returns. For custom parts (made to order parts like our engine mounting kits) there is a 35% restocking fee. We do not accept returned customized items such as driveshafts and wiring harnesses.

The flat rate envelope is more money but you will get your gears much much quicker and the tracking number shows the package route! (the default shipping method on this site is this option).

If you want the cheaper route, you must email us telling us this and we will send you a Paypal invoice. We are not liable if you do not get your package with this option as we have no way to track it once it's at the post office.
