Hi
the seats are bolted to a rail with different bolt holes at certain heights on,when the seat is in you would need to take the seat out again to change the rail settings, we bolt them on the lowest settings, hope this helps,
Chris

What prevents them from being fitted to R53 runners?

Can't that be fixed with special brackets, or are there more fundamental reasons for them not fitting (too wide, too high)?

The Recaaro site has these down (without airbags) as Recaro Sportster CS's, and they're available for the R53, so you could buy the bracket from Recaro possibly for the R53. We need someone to try it first

Im sure the r53 r56 floorpans are the same.

It reminds me of the time a friend was told by his mini dealer he could not retro fit isofix to his 53 plate S as it was a welded in bar at the factory!!

In truth its 4 brackets that bolt into existing threaded holes! and some hole in the back seat.

Hi Chris, i've been ASSURED by Almondbury stealership in Hudds that they DO NOT have heated elements in this seat. They told me that they called mini and they confirmed it too.
Unless you know somat they dont?
Regards, Specky.

Was thinking of not connecting the airbag, but then remembered the pre tensioner is removed from the old seats and attached to the new ones on the Sparco JCW's. Could do with knowing how the R56 pre tensioner attachs and see if its swapable with the old style one.
