Did you use the Bugeye tracks or make your own mounts? I have a set of 914
seats I was planning to put in my MKII. The only thing I don't like about
them is that they are too flat under my knees. I need to mount them at a
slightly tipped back angle. They also don't have any side bolsters but
between the door, the tunnel and 5 point harnesses I don't figure I'll have
any problems.

I'm using a set of seats out of a 914 Porsche in my bug-i, bought them from
Antelope dismantlers for $20.  Cut off the head rests and recovered them for
about $300 total.  They are more comfortable than the original seats and
look better than any of the aftermarket seats I've seen.  The best part is I
was able to mount them without drilling any extra holes and can remove them
and install the original seats anytime.
