For months I've been debating over getting my Recarros re-covered or getting some aftermarket seats. Friday on a whim, I decided to call the local bone yard and see what they had laying around. Well, to my surprise they had not one but two pairs of Z3 seats, including one pair in TAN! (the planned color for my interior) I get there and realize the black pair were "sport seats" from a M roadster! Sweeeeet! I fell in love and changed my interior color scheme on the spot! :-) They look like they will be an easy fit. An adaptor bracket will do the trick and they only sit 1/2" higher than my Recarros did. Now the wiring, that's another story...

kind of like the new 7- series having 147 electric motors.

My car has 3 motors, of which only 2 are working right now. Can you imagine how few 7's will be running in 35 years?

ps, and yes, I'm jealous, too...

They were $600 for the pair, including all the wiring I could get out of the car and the switches. That was about on par with some of my higher re-covering estimates.

When we were searching for switches, Brian (the junkyard guy) asked if I wanted x or y switch, explaining the difference in style and year,etc... I had to explain to him that these seats were the ONLY power item in my 30 year old car... He had a pretty big smirk on his face after I told him what they were going in. He used to have a couple 02's it turns out.
