View Full Version : E36 Seats in E30?

05-07-2004, 06:11 AM
Hey guys,

I know there was a page that showed the steps involved in putting Vaders in an E30, so I'm looking for that link too. But my main question is will E36 Sport seats follow this same guidline?

Meaning are they roughly the same width and such so I can get them in? Got a good deal on a set of leather sports from an E36 so I'm hoping this isn't going to be too difficult.

Thanks for the help as always guys.

Excellent thank you!

the vaders and every other e36 seat use the same mounting holes, so the procedure (which is long and involved) is required no matter what seats you use.

Since my drivers seat was hosed, I swapped over my passenger seat today, so now I can use the broken drivers as a template for my new brackes. After reading the site it looks quite easy.

Does anybody know another link to this article?
Site must be old or down.

Jordan drilled a new set of hole sinto the floor board, which I would prefer not to do.

If anyone rembers the site with the templates, I'd really appreciate it.
My seats are being shipped and I'd like to get started before they arrive.
