Can you switch the front seats?

It may be a stupid question, but are the front seats of a E30 can switch places if you unbolt the tracks and bolt the other seat tracks?

The reason I'm asking is that my driver seat is not very supportive anymore but the passenger seat is almost new...

I would like to switch them...

Thanks!

you can do it, but it's kind of dumb.

you'd have the handles on the opposite sides. They will fit, i got a parts car and the seats were like that.

I did not think about that...
That would be kind of dumb, like you said....
I guess I will have to ask somebody to put new foam in the seat instead...

Thanks for the input. It's better to know this now instead of when both seats are out of the car....

it makes sense if you have a nice passenger seat, and your driver seat is crap. it's actually probably an upgrade for heavier people who tend to sit on the seat adjustment levers while getting out.
