Also bolt in so no permanent mods, seat belt buckle is on the subframe on b3/4 so that is sorted as well.

Golf recaro subframes come up for sale more regularly than Audi ones, and can be modified to fit I believe.

If you are fitting a cage you can also just weld bars across with mounting tabs.

Decided I didn't want to butcher the original seats just in case the car ever returns to 'normal, so I did exactly as suggested. Ended up with VW Polo gti seats from a scrap yard (25 for the pair).Stripped, chopped, measured and rewelded as per above. Really happy with the results, Sparco seats and Safety devices belts now in. Just tidying up the wiring through the cabin left.
