I have heard of people putting e36 vaders in the e30, so they likely do fit. Perhaps need to switch the seat rails or something though, not sure.

They will fit with some modification, there are quite a bit of ways to do it ranging from redneck to moderately decent.

In other words they're not a direct fit but it can be done with modification.
