i got the basemounts for the mkiv supra and fitment is horrible. if you already have basemounts (from the 240), i'd look into getting a shop to modify these to fit properly (if this is possible, i don't know anything about 240's). No point in spending 200+ for supra brackets that don't fit either.

Don't get me wrong, i got mine to fit, but don't ask how, and yes my seats are crooked, the base is stretched, so they don't slide for sh*t either, so i'm going to have to get them reworked in the future as well. (just don't have the willpower to do it right now, given the frustration to finally get the seats in the car).

(the seats also sit higher with the basemounts as opposed to stock, something you could also avoid with a custom base. There have been threads about this before, with many people also complaining about the terrible fitment of the basemounts, just so you know)

I got my basemounts from Titan and they were perfect. There was a slight bend in one of them but i fixed that. They bolted right in with no problem.

Call Sean at Titan and he will get you all the necessary stuff to get your Torinos in your car.

I just got some Torinos with the Sparco bases. They didn't fit very well but I finally got them in. I had to buy a longer bolt with about a half inch of washers to get the back mounting point to work (the one that bolts into the trans tunnel) I'm planning on making my own brakets that sit lower in the near future!

I have the milano 2s and had to use a longer bolt as well. I thought it was just an issue that I was having and was rather concerned since sparco provides the bolt kit, but everything seems secure along with the harness bar.

Well I spent like an hour on each base modifying them to fit correctly. But they both are identical and straight, and also slide with no issue. Seats do sit higher but I actually kind of like it so far...dam sparco...if anyone needs some torino 2;s I have 2 for sale brand new...

do any of the other side mounts that sparco sells work in the supra? somebody has to have figured something out for these seats. I see a few guys with s2000 seats in the sup and they are looking very low the way they are mounted?

Magic look and see if yours still have the sparco stickers on them that identity year/make/model and side. Otherwise maybe take a picture, those of use with the sparcos will surely be able to id them since we so care for them. :rolleyes:

I am also wondering if there is a difference in production dates or something. Like maybe sparco revised them or soemthing and if you get old stock you get crappy ones...But then again I got one that I suspect was old stock and one new and they both sucked...nevermind...
