Im ready to buy 2 seats of Sparco torino 2 so the problem is if they will fit on the oem bases and if the oem seatbelts will do the job too

they wont bolt right up but you could find an adapter kit. and no, the seatbelt wont work (safely), you'll need harnesses.

The seatbelts will work just fine as long as the new bases have the receptor mounted to it. Harnesses are not safer than standard 3 point belts in a street car. I ran Cobra Daytonas with the stock belts and it was nice on the street and on the race track.

you need to buy a slider/bracket kit that is made for the seat to go into an A4, it will mount into the OEM slider slots and then to the front pin. Wedge also makes slider/brackets but it is best if you try to buy something from Sparco first.

I was hoping that the buckets will fit on the oem bases ok whatever
What do u think it's best ? To buy the seats and try to put them alone (it's an easy job ? ) ? Or to pay a performance shop to do it ?

Stock base is part of the seat.


It is a easy job to install the seats once you have the correct bracket. I can take my Cobra race seats in and out in about 2 minutes since it is just 2 bolts in back and the stock clip in front.

With the basis of what a bucket seat is...


This is a pic of my seat. The sparco torino. It is not a bucket.

A bucket seat looks like this... a bucket

bucket seat
n.
A single, usually low seat with a contoured back, typically used in some automobiles.


So by that both are bucket seats, only difference is one reclines and one is a fixed back.
