You dont need the mounts on the evo X. i will take those off anyway. The way the post above shows will leave you with some lopsided seats if you dont know what your doing.

Ill do them for 150. and they will sit like factory in your car.

Putting stickers on fake wheels to pass them off is the same as a girl rocking a fake Gucci or a Lamborghini kit car or some fake Jordan's. If you can't afford to play then rock the lower end brands and stop playing yourself.

So here what happened, i spent all the money on Nov on the Volk that i got a Great Deal on so i have to slow down on the Recaro.

After 3 months, paid off for the Volk. Time is back on the Recaro.

Went to Ramey Built and ask if they can custom weld the bracket on the Car for me and i found out:
- The Evo 9 Recaro doesnt have the Rail/Slider on them...so now i have to look for that first.
After do some measurement, here what i came down with...


So the Plan im thinking here:
- Buy these (Recaro Seat Slider-Stable Energies) then custom the bracket to fit into the IS300.

Or:
- I gonna Call Wedge Engineering > HOME-BRACKETS this monday and see if they can custom make me both Rail/Slider and Bracket to just bolt on into the IS300


Questions:
- Is the Rail i show selling online gonna fit the OEM Recaro Evo 9 Seats?
- Does Wedge Engineering make Rail or just Bracket only?


Please help guys...

Update:
- Call Wedge Enginering and they got both of sliders and bracket for my car. $190 for both slider and bracket for each side.
- Ginna call another place and see if I can buy the slider for cheaper since Wedge charging $102 ea side, when CDOC sell $105 for both
