Help w/ E24 6 Series rear seats in an '02


Guest Anonymous

After seeing how cool they looked in the '02 Replacement Seating Guide on this website, I acquired a pair of 6 Series rear seats and the center console to install in my '67 1600. A test fit wasn't very promising, as the seats seem to be too far forward, eliminating any semblance of legroom (just like in a 6 Series). It appears the Sixer seat shells, which are plastic, would require a fair amount of trimming away to fit against the '02 wheelwell area. Has anyone here done this installation? Anyone know whose car that is pictured in the Seating Guide?

I also bought the entire rear shoulderbelt assemblies from a Sixer to install also. I'll get it done by trial and error if necessary but if anyone has been here before I'd appreciate any pointers.

As for how much, I paid $300 for the two rear seats with fold down armrest, and another $50 for the pair of seatbelts with all mounting hardware. The seats are black leather, very soft, great condition. For the front, I paid $375 for a pair of black vinyl Recaros that need to be recovered, and $150 for a pair of inertial reel seatbelts to replace the stock dangling straps. Still to come, carpeting, door panels, possibly roll cage that will render rear seat useless anyway...

the person and he said that the PO had done the install.

From what he said and test fitting my seats. You will need to trim the "ears" on the back and use bolts with washers for spacers to mount them.

HTH,

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
