They are pretty hard to come by except maybe on ebay. There's anm e21 section on bimmerforums.com as well. You might have some luck there. Good luck

there are more e21s in the US - try getting one from there - you can also just get the internals and use existing housing.

Keep watching the local boards and you will come up with the seats and the LSD

i have two sets of recaros.. one set is cloth and the other vinyl. Vinyl set is in good shape with one rip on the driver side bolster and the cloth the driver seat needs re-upholstering but both sets the passenger in very good shape.. P.S I know a guy that does interiors for restorations that can re-upholster the set pretty inexpensively and does an amazing job.

Wow that looks good
No I did not see him yet the cars been in the body shop for the past two weeks, geting it back by mid Feb or so and then going to start work on the interior.
I like to do a interior and all not just the seats.
I will call him
Thanks.

^^^Thanks!
I've seen him working on full interiors too.
He was working on someone's Lambo (full interior incl. headliner) and I also saw an F150 Lightning with two-tone interior.
I really liked a seat bench he was making for a circa '60's Ford pick-up truck...way cool!

It spent the last 20 years as an office/computer chair.
My kids are sad to see it go.
