How To Fit The Bimarco Dakar Into Your VW Golf Mk5

How To Fit The Bimarco Dakar Into Your VW Golf Mk5

A very common question we get at GSM Performance is “how do i fit the Bimarco Daker seat into my Golf Mk5” and because we highly receive this question, we have created this blog post to guide you though installing the Bimarco Dekar seat and state what fitting equipment you will need specifically for the VW Golf Mk5. 

Recommended Fitting equipment...

For a safe and secure instalment, we recommend the M2 Volkswagen Golf MK5 Sub-frames as they have been manufactured to specifically fit into the Golf Mk5. This will give you a perfect fit to the base of the car as they have the same bolt pattern as the original floor plan of the Golf Mk5. We like the fact that these M2 frames are all in one fitting kits that include side mounts, sliding runners and and the floor mounts all in one piece, this makes it simple and easy to use. 

The side mounts have been tried and tested in store with care and we know they line up to the side bolt points of the Bimarco Dakar seat with no problems. These side mounts have a multi bolt point design to allow the driver to change the hight and tilt of the seat to obtain that perfect driving position. 

Due to the design of the M2 Motorsport side mount brackets, there is a driver maximum weight limit of 14 stone. This is to help ensure the structural integrity of the fitting kit.

Please find the seat and frames here:

The Bimarco Dakar Motorsport seats are FIA approved 8855-1999 for those looking to take racing seriously. This is therefore the best choice for people that would like to get into motorsport for a affordable price, but that require a high quality standard and great safety as well. The Bimarco Dakar is very durable and strong as it has a monolithic construction and has a glass fibre reinforced plastic shell mould for added strength. This seat is available in three different colours to suit your needs! We hope that this seat fulfills all your expectations.
