Hi,

I've just bought an 92er e36 coupe (325i). The car has a non-leather interior which I'd like to replace. I can buy an second hand redleather interior from an e46 which will look great (I think). Is it posible to fit an e36 with an e46 leather interior (seats, couch and pannels)? Thanks in advance.

i think that would be really hard, i think the e36 is smaller and well its shaped diifferently you could prolly make your own i dont know about just shoving parts in you'd prolly have to cut stuff off seems like a cool project though

That sounds like some realy extensive work. I've never done something like modifing interior panels. The owner of the interior said the seat and couch would fit directly, is this true?

When I take recaro seats, I need to find a single leather couch which will never be the same collor. I really need a complete interior, thats why this e46 bargen would have been a great sollution. Maybe I'll strip my pannels and seats and drive to the seller to see if it might fit. It's far from my home, thats why I asked the question. European gas prices are somewhat difrent than US prices...
