    mk4 golf = A3 8L old shape

    They arent mk4 buckets are they because they wont fit! mk5 buckets are just as rare as S3 ones because they were silly money aswell.


    and yes even if they do fit, your car will be a 2 seater!

    Yeah but not as much as the standard seats, biggest problem is the slide, but i reckon you can pull them forward using the front seat adjuster of you really needed to squeeze someone in!

    i'm not 100% sure but i would check to see if its an MOT failure, if it has rear seats and you can use them, ie they are there and have the seat belts there I would assume that in the case of an emergency you would have to tip them forward ?? not 100% sure so could be totaly wrong.

    My good friend Lomax aka 'The Mk5' :





    He's got RS4 saloons in his, so they don't recline



    But his car is a show car to be fair, and he doesn't care as I take the piss out of him all the time for it
