Question Regarding Recaro Sportster Installation using Macht Schnell Hardware

E92 M3

For those that installed Recaro Sportster w/ Recaro Sliders using Macht Schnell hardware, how did you install the MS seatbelt receptacle bracket? EAS said it was floor mount, slider, receptacle mount and then the seat.

However if I put the receptacle mount in between the slider and seat only one hole will line up. Am I supposed to drill? Also if the receptacle mount is added, it will add thickness to one side of the slider, am I supposed to compensate with washers/spacers on the other side?

Additionally I can't to get the seat to center to the steering wheel. The seat is noticeably off-center to the left toward the door. I read this is a common issue with Matrix-Style floor mounts (Macht Schnell / VAC). Is there a fix or a special method to get the seat to center?

Hardware Used:

Recaro Track Sliders - 0.70.9NT (https://www.vividracing.com/-p-15084...UaAuMiEALw_wcB)

MS Competition Lightweight Floor Mount (https://europeanautosource.com/macht...s-e82-e9x.html)

Stack orientation is correct, no drilling is needed.

Make sure you are using a receptacle bracket on both sides - they are provided in a set of two. If you are still having trouble, we can install for you as well as code out the seat errors afterwards.
