Should just have to put in the U bolts that the seats would clip onto. But you really have to look to see if the frame behind your seats is the same as the one that has fold down seats.

Thanks Mike

I tried looking at the car they came from,but there was a 3way interior swap going on so it was preety frantic.We didn't get split seats as std till the facelift 99.5,before that it was an option. I have a kinda firewall made of thin gueage steel behind my seats currently.

I assume you had split seat accros the whole range over there?

Yep and he got my trim from which was from a S4 and I got a new one from another S4 with the blue alcantara inserts.

Mark you will work it out and if you need me to take more pic's I will It may be a good idea to go to the breakers where you got the engine and nick the parts out of that.
