Installing Recaro Pole Position seats

Hi, Iím looking at installing recaro pole position seats in my 1M.

I know a few people have done this and was wondering what you had to do to stop the missing seat airbags causing error codes. From what I have read so far the recommendation seems to be to get resistors from recaro. Just wanting to make sure this is still a current working option.

I still want the other airbags to operate normally as well.

I can also order an occupancy sensor for the passenger seat to eliminate that issue.

Thanks

He is a guy on the forums (based in Southern California, I believe) who does remote coding for a good price.

No need to code them out if you don't wish to.
I installed these and can go back to the oem seats easily.

Interesting. Never seen these before. How have these been working for you? I assume you need two of them, one for driver and one for passenger, correct?
