any one have any luck with this combo ???

I've done a bit of research .....seems like manual e36 seats fit with fabbing up some brackets ....do power ones work too ? or are they tooo wide (according to a website ??)

i would be really interested as well, I have some really beat up 86 325es seats and if I could replace with some power e36 seats that would be awesome. I'm gunna do some research and see what I can find.

An old member named Jordan fit e36 Vaders into his e30. You might want to pm him and see if he'll help you.

Power seats fit as well, you just have to get creative with the wiring.

the width of the rails on power seats is the same as on manual!!! i did i conversion on my e36 from manual to power, same mounting points, just some creative wiring needed!!

It's not really that difficult as far as I know. Power and ground connecting.
