i really like the sport seats that came on the e30 "is" models... i was wondering if i would be able to put those seats in my e36 (325i)????

my buddy might be able to hook me up with those seats but i wanted to make sure before i buy them...

i put my e30 recaro, 5way NON-pwr seats in my e36.....
stock e36 seats are ok, but not so great in the twisties....
i wasnt able to use tracks cuz the e36 r pwr seats, so i had to custom fabricate new ones in my garage. it wasnt too bad, MAKE SURE U MEASURE CORRECTLY!!!!!

u will also have to offset each seat with the middle(of the car) rail lined up w/the old rail bolts and the outer rail offset inward from cars mounts. start there, make a mockup and have fun lifting the seat in and out and in and outand ...well u get it.

hit me up if u have problems. oh, and use heavy steel for ut frabricating and dont cut corners. if they break ur having a BADDDDDDAY!!!! make them strong....get a welder.

they will fit think logically before you do it, with things such as distances, height of both chairs, power/non power etc. Also another great seat to buy are the vader seats from the e36 m3, by far my fav! check them out

thanx guyz... the seats are manual in both cars... i was hoping to have to do the least amount of modifications to put the e30s in... they are just amazing during turns... they feel like they are molded with your body...

so now that its established it's a doable how much should I be paying him? i m not sure how much they go for...

yes, there is an airbac control unit under the back seats of our cars. if it gets hit or nailsd with something hard enough to jar it pretty badly......light goes on and airbags can possibly refuse to open.
