I am basically looking to borrow, beg, or buy a set of beat up e30 seats for about a week.

The scenario: the tuners working on the HalTech in the M3 cannot fit into the Sparco race seats since they're both a little heavy (both 250lbs+).

So to have the car tuned they need to to be able to get in it an drive it. they can't do that if they don't fit into the seats.

So what I'm asking is, does anyone have a set of beat up old e30 seats which they could lend me for about a week or sell to me at a reasonable price?

Any help appreciated.

John Dimoff has his old seats from his E30 M3. Ask him (although it might be a bit embarrasing for you since they are not working on the car) :D

Not to worry.

I have got a set to use now, but thanks for your input.

I dunno about laughing... it is a serious issue. There can be some serious health issues with being overweight... anyhow I guess you never seen a 300lb guy try to squeeze into a race seat designed for a 175lb. european race driver. Not pretty. :D

What is getting done? A stand alone engine management system, HalTech E6K, for starters (this season). Basically I'm going to run Alpha-N + MAP. Next season remains a mystery so far... :D

Lovely... :rolleyes:

I'm not buying them new seats. I have a set I can borrow for about a week.

Putting them on Jenny Craig would be the responsibility of their respective wives; not me.

Sheesh... you guys act like you're all runway models... bunch of Derek Zoolanders!

Well, I really don't want to buy a set of seats for only a weeks worth of use, so I have someone who has very graciously agreed to lend me a set. That's what traditionally happens in a tight car community; we help each other out. I kind of get the feeling that that has changed since I first got into the scene many, many years ago. :(
