Posting my experience, maybe someone can help and a warning to others

I was using the direct to floor mounts from BK on my sparco DTM seat, wide version R-9260 a bit of fiddle but I got it installed, transformed the car.

Recently some spg xl’s came up locally so I snapped them up and bought a pair of the narrow mounts R-9262 so I could mix them with the wide ones I already had and benefit from the central position.

Installing the spg xl is not easy. They sit lower than the sparco seats and even on the highest setting, getting the stock bolts torqued down is virtually impossible at the back, there is no room to get a tool on there and tighten them up. The alternate route of bolting the mounts to the floor then fixing the seat to the mount is very tricky indeed as they sit very close to the trans tunnel and the is no room…
Does anyone know of a bolt with a low profile head that can replace this stock one 07149156953?
Something you can use a simple spanner on…


All the best,
Steve
