Installed my 03 gti seats I had in my golf into my bug. I have riccaros for the golf.

old seats


Installed


Here is the door panel I sanded and repainted the top part and door handle. Still have to do the other 3 panels



Has any one ever tried to retrofit golf rear seats into a bug. I have the matching rear seats for these but the mounts are different in the bug for the rears. These seats are some much more comfortable than the old worn out ones I took out.

Did they bolt right up or did you have to modify?

Nice. Did you cover the rears too? The head rests are the best mod for a Golf or Jetta, but seeing you're installing these in a Beetle to begin with ...then there's no argument over whether or not these actually look in "place" for a NB or not... lol.

P.S. nice interior Krout.
