Thanks for the advice, but i dont want my car to look like a racer. i want to try to keep it bmw original. plus, i think the bmw sport seats look better than any gay racing seats that are commonly found in rice rockets.

I think i'll keep looking around for a good set of sport seats, even if theyre in shitty condition, i plan on reupholstering them

may i ask you if you ever driven a car hard with real buckets?

the reason i put my sprints in is the function, not the form, even though i grew to like their look in my car.

If you are into agressive driving / tracking i consider it a necessity to have high bolstered buckets that would hold you in high G cornering and give you confidence while driving. (again, function over form)
But if one mostly uses the car as a classy / good looking grocery-getter then yes, buckets would be a waste.

and BTW, the definition of a ricer is modding your car with cheap, tasteless and usually dysfunctional mods.
Sparco seats may not look good to everyone but they are quite expensive and quite functional.
