    Does anyone know if a set of electric recaros from a 1999 b5 4
    Will fit 1999 b5 a4 that did not come with electric seats.
    Mine has cloth seats with electric lumbar adjustment.
    Just trying to find out what if any wiring changes are needed

    i believe the front mounting point for the full electric seats is different to the standard ones.

    You need to weld the front mounts on to the your floor.

    streight swap?

    You sure they were "full" electric seats?

    The fully electric ones have electric front/back slide, and its that which causes the floor mounts to change. If yours went streight in they must be the ones that only have the electric backrest adjustment?

    they have electric lumbar, lift up/down, and roll forward/back on the backrest.
    but you are right in the sense that they are a manual slide.
    i can live with that though !

    they are filthy scott, and need some serious cleaning.
    will be posting a few pics soon, finally managed to lower her on the shocks and spring kit i got from olds-kool.
    very happy with them.
