Question Installing Recaro Pole Position FIA seats in a WRX...

I finally got my Recaro Pole Position seats for my '03 WRX. I'm wondering if anyone has installed these in a WRX?? I used the Recaro side mounts in my GC, and bolted them directly to the floor, but that is a rally car. I'm told the seats will sit too low in the WRX directly on the floor, which makes sense...my plan is to use Sparco seat bases and mount the Recaro side mounts to the bases? Any feedback or opinions would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!

I know a few people in here have the pole positions with the recaro bases, it doesn't look like they sit too too low but I guess I can't talk by looking.
Check in the members car gallery...interior thread. Their are some pole positions in there...

great seats by the way...

Hard to tell in the pics I was able to find. I'm wondering if the side mounts will mount directly to the Sparco bases? Or do I need to put sliders in? Anyone have these seats or had these seats in their WRX? Thanks so much.

Ive got sparco bases with sparco seats/ sides. Sides are pretty much universal though. Fits great. You can also use the buddyclub bases/slider/brackets.
