Caroma Caravelle Installation issues

I am worried about installing the Caroma Caravelle for all the same reasons as Firemark in Aug 11, 2009 that is it doesn't seem well attached to the floor.

In 2009, Terry said "What the (Caroma Caravelle installation) video does not show are the two holes at the back of the bowl for two screws that go into the floor."

Caroma now has a new bowl the 27o. Does this also have those back of the bowl bolts?

Also, my floor has beautiful tiles (so replacing it is not an option), but it is not level (I have used plaster to fudge the un-level floor under the toilet). This plus a wax ring and a lot of pressure applied by the bolts on my old fashioned gravity flush toilet has been stable and not noticeable .

Do you think this Caroma Caravelle one piece 27o will work given my floor issue?

Tile can be drilled for screw holes, and the bowl will likely need to be shimmed so that it sits solidly without rocking. Unless you have something really out of the ordinary there, you should be fine.
A properly installed and maintained water closet should last longer than any other appliance in a house. The installation should be made with the mindset that it is your "forever" toilet.
Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
