yea they will fit mate, iv the red ep3 seats in mine, but they are currently sitting with only three bolts fitted lol

stable but obviously have no chance of passing my m.o.t with it like this!! it will be your back inside bolts that wont fit!!

but by the looks of it you just need to drill a new hole through the bracket base!! im just afraid to do this at the moment

as mine were previously in a eg civic and they have already been drilled very close to where i would need to drill!!

btw if your tall you will find the ep3 seats sit a bit more further forward and higher up!!!

yea!! 3 of the 4 will fit!! the back left for the drivers seat and the back right for the passenger will not go in!!

but it seems to be a simple matter of just drilling through the rail!! thats what the guy did to them who sold me them so sadly its

not so easy for me as i will be drilling right beside where he drilled and the bolt will just slide between the two holes rele!!

lmao!!

no worries, tbh i was pestering people on here before i purchased mine wandering if they would fit or not, as i had

never swapped seats before,

good luck gettin them in, they rele set the interior off!!

only annoying thing for me really is the way they sit a bit higher and more forwards, felt like driving a different car

for a while but you soon get used to it lol!! you will also find it harder to get your hands down the side of the seats

as the seats are bigger than the standard ones,

but its all worth it lol
