    These were in a Audi if I remember correctly. They used 3 mounting points which I'm not used to, but install came out real clean.

    I always use the OEM holes since they're much better than simply drilling a hole in the floor and running a bolt with washer that could easily pull through in the case of a bad Taco curse situation. (crash) Just thought I'd share.

    Front mount.
    I welded a plate with a tab to the floor.

    No added holes, only factory ones.

    with this under the hood, he'll be glad to have seats that don't move around anymore!
