Noob with a Recaro question - RS265 Recaros into an RS200



  Clio
Hi, I'm new to the forum. I have had my Clio RS 200 Cup (mk3) for a little over a year now and am loving it.

I have got to the stage where I want to tweak it a little bit and have picked up a few things from KTR (although the shipping costs are pretty awful as I'm in NZ). One of the things at the top of my list was a set of Reacros. I did not think I'd find any, as Renaults aren't as prevalent in NZ as the UK.

However, I stumbled across a set from a Megane RS 265, which I'm stoked about. The only problem is that the Recaro seat base/subframe is not plug and play into the Clio's floor bolt holes. Is there a way to change the base and make the seats work? I see that this has been mentioned in the past - https://cliosport.net/threads/recaro-seat-info-updated.95314/page-5 - but I can't find answer. No doubt this has been discussed a lot, but my searching skills are obviously below par. Can any one provide an answer, link to a thread that would help, link to anyone who fabricates bases?

Cheers.

Don’t take this as the full answer, but I was under the impression they were bolt straight in?

@JON FOZ may be your man. He has the Megane Trophy R so will know the floorplan and holes for mounting plates. See what he comes back with as I've tagged him.
 
They should bolt straight in if you can still get hold of the correct subframes, the only thing you might struggle with is the tilt/slide function.

Years ago i got my Recaro subframes from capital seating.

Thanks, I'll check that out.
