    Hi guys - I am thinking about putting some reclining sports seats into my 182, was thinking about Sparco R100 or OMP Strada. The point is - I would like to keep the OEM sliders, especially on the driver side since you can raise the seat for smaller drivers. Has anyone on here put aftermarket seats onto the original sliders?
    Many thanks!

    I think the only way you can do it is to modify the originals.
    Im yet to meet anyone small enough to have the seat setting to high though :smiley:
    Mine is all the way down and still feels high.

    You can mount a wide range of seats onto my VBD Recaro adaptors.

    These bolt straight to your existing sliders and allow aftermarket seats to be used.

    Forgive me if I'm wrong but the height adjustment is on the seats not the sliders so even if you had the oem sliders with say Trendlines you wouldn't be able to adjust them up and down.

    Hello Jon,

    thank you for your reply.
    I want to install recaro CS and have to decide which type i should buy. I think the following options are available:
    Clio3 RS Recaro CS
    Megane RS Recaro CS
    original Recaro CS with standard fitting without side airbag.
    I do not know the differences ! For what type of seat are your VBD Recaro adaptors. How can I change the seat height. Some Photos or Instructions would be helpful.

    As far as I know the only ones that my VBD Lowered Recaro adaptors fit are the standard CS without airbag

    There isn't a way of altering the height.

    You can use either my standard height or my lowered version

    Cheers

    Hello Jon,

    i have the possibility to buy an Recaro CS Renault Clio Driver seat new for 850€. But this is with airbag ! Would this fit on your adapters. What ist the difference in height of your 2 Versions.

    Regards

    That seat will NOT fit.

    They have all the Renault specific base on them which makes them sit super high.

    My adaptors can only be used with the aftermarket Ines.

    My lowered adaptors are 30mm lower than my standard.

    Cheers

    Hello Jon,
    thank you for your reply. I have to use original Recaros !!! I think the normal height is as series in the lowest position ? So I have to decide which height to use. The safety belt buckle remains on the original runner ? How much are your adapters inc. P&P to Germany ? Could you send a picture of your adapters ? Did your Adapter also fit other makes e.g. Sparco ?
    I would like to apologize for the many questions. But I would like to carry out the conversion without major problems next May.

    Cheers

    Hello Jon,
    with this picture I have no idea how it is mounted or how it looks. I will get 2 Recaro CS and then report back. The quality of the work seems to be very good!
    Can I increase the seat height with distances again when it is too low ?
    best regards
