chriss_uk is an unknown quantity at this point
I am looking into buying some new seats on ebay but am not sure if they will fit in my e30. The austion says "they have standard bolts and will fit any current subframe (custom bracket) eg Recaro, Cobra, Corbeau, Sparco etc"

I could buy a couple subframes for a couple hundred dollars but I have read that people have made custom brackets themselves. Can anyone advise how to do this?

draculia is an unknown quantity at this point
my seats are bottom mount, and what i did was use two pieces of 2x2x3/16 angle aluminum bolted together to form a 'z' shape. i drilled some extra holes so i could mount the seat back or foward and tilted. if you want to run sliders, you could easily tie some in from summit or jegs.
