MPP.R Recaro Seat Mount Kit For Tesla Model 3!

We’re proud to announce our MPP.R Tesla Model 3 Recaro Sportster Seat Mount Kit, which allows you to have the comfort of a power sliding seat base, the ability to use easy-entry, and proper occupant detection. In addition, you’ll enjoy OE-level integration with no warnings or errors on the dash, all with one of Recaro’s most popular sport reclinable seats. The design of this seat bracket is unlike anything we’ve seen in the aftermarket before, and is purpose designed for this seat specifically – the Recaro Sportster.

Concept And Design:

Most seat bases are designed with flat plates of metal, above which a manual slider must be bolted, which above that have fixed seat brackets bolted, and finally the seat. In many cars, this isn’t a problem. But with a 4″ tall battery underneath you in a Tesla, having the seat as low as possible to the ground is important. The OEM Tesla seat is incredibly low, almost impossibly so considering all of the mechanisms and adjustments inside it.

The team at Tesla really did a great job with the design of that, and we found a way to reuse the OEM powered Tesla rails with custom designed unique billet aluminum brackets which bolt to the Recaro seat. While the seat is as low as physically possible, it is not as low as the OEM Tesla seat. That is because the OE slider is literally built into the OE seat, and the cushion is relatively short. In our case, the recaro seat has a taller cushion (specifically at the front) which means your legs will be slightly higher. The front of the seat sits roughly 220mm above the floor of the vehicle, measured from the front edge of the OEM seat rail. This is approximately 15mm lower than aftermarket seat rails and sliders will provide.

The Kit:

This kit includes components for you to relatively easily install a Recaro Sportster or Sportster CS in your car with OE-level integration. However, there are some limitations:

  • The wiring harness is for the DRIVER SIDE ONLY. Using this kit on the passenger side will physically mount up, but the electronics provided WILL NOT WORK. Passenger-side electronics are in development, but we have no ETA on when, or if, we will have the passenger-side kit available. Please do not buy the driver-side kit if you will be mad at us if the passenger-side kit never materializes!
  • This seat mount kit uses a Tesla seat base which is NOT INCLUDED. An OEM seat must be disassembled as some components are required. The good news is that the parts of the seat that need to be removed are easy and quick to reverse, with no permanent damage.

What’s Included:

  • 2x Billet aluminum black anodized seat brackets
  • 4x Mounting bolts for the seat
  • 4x Mounting bolts for the seat rail
  • OEM occupancy sensor to be mounted under the padding of your bucket seat
  • Modified OEM seat wiring harness to make installation easy

What Is NOT Included:

  • A seat is NOT included
  • Brackets to mount the OEM seat controls to the Recaro seat are not included. You can drill holes, or use VHB tape (recommended)
  • You will need to be able to modify the Recaro seat (remove the seat cushion) to install the occupancy sensor
