    Ferrari 360/ f430 seats in Mr2 Spyder

    Ok well i have a chance to purchase some 360 seats for my mr2 spyder. My question is has anyone fitted them to a mr2 and do they fit in eg it doesnt hit the doors or centre console where the hand brake is. Also for anyone who fitted them did u modifiy the orginal mr2 spyder rails or had custom made ones.

    It will probably depend on the kit etc and whether that intrudes into the passenger compatment etc but I have been told that 360 seats fit into the DNA 360 but spaces does get a little tight.
    I would imagine (but don't know) that the best way to fit them will be to take the runners off the MR2 seats and weld them onto the base of the 360 seat. That's what I typically do when I've fitted bucket or race seats into my cars. This is the inexpensive way of buying race seats if you want them to still be adjustable though sometimes you have to do a little cutting or create brackets to fit them so they don't hit other seat mechanisms. I picked up some free stock Subaru seats about a month ago just to strip the runner seat system off them so that I can fit some lightweight seats for racing and then swap quickly back to comfy seats for occasional weekend driving. It also means that I can keep the lightweight seats when I sell the car. That probably won't be an issue for you though!

    I could give you some measurements of a 430 seat if that would help you at all

    hey, measurements would be great also the kit doesnt protrude into the interior its more my concern about it being too wide haha. also the idea about welding the rails sound like an interesting idea. i want 2 see if anyone had any to see if they look 2 chunky in a mr2 spyder.
