Seat swaps

Postby AustinR » Tue Apr 03, 2012 3:17 am

Who's got good seats in their e30 that didn't come in it originally? I know someone on here has a seat out of a Hyundai I think? I think I'd like to stay BMW and I want something pretty sporty. Big side supports to keep me in while cornering and probably fabric over vinyl or leather. Also, I want them to be heated, but I can do that to them afterwards. This is my daily so I don't really want a full on race seat, just something nicer.

I know that people have swapped Vaders over from the E36 M3. And I want to say Recaro's from old Vdubs (GTI?) has been done too. Easiest route would be just getting a set of heated sport seats, possibly even a pair in rough shape then recover them how you want.

Vaders weight a ton, and don't support as well as you would think. The recaros from the VWs look really nice, but are hard ti find from what I've read. If this is just a DD and you don't want to spend a ton check out the reclining "race seats" on ebay. Look really nice, and several people who got them said they are comfy. You can get a set for around $200 shipped IIRC.
