M3 seats

So this will probably be really funny / yeah i am stupid...

Someone posted m3 seats for sale and i jumped and got them right away...

I'm really new to owning an e36, so i don't know too much stuff about them, but again no excuse. I guess when i got there, all i looked at was the m stripe and quality of seats and then took em home. I was tired that day was in the hospital due to eye infection (seriously)

They were from an m3 sedan and i have a coupe. So I realize later when i get home that the seats i got weren't even ones i wanted (vaders)

I end up putting them in just to see how they are, and then I forgot but, these seats dont even move up to let the passengers in the back go in fully. ****!

Here are the seats, they look cool to match the rear m3 seats though...




i wanted these



would anyone want these that i got?

many people prefer the sport seats. say they are more comfortable...but personally i have no issues with the vaders. they dont bother me one bit. and ive done many 5+hr road trips in them.
someone will want to buy the sport seats for sure. though itll cost you more to buy vaders.

My buddy has the same problem. It's a huge pain in the ass.

And to the OP, Sport seats are much more comfortable than vaders

You can just switch the leather over to your Coupe seat rails and the problem is gone.

Yeah , fail...

But the passengers can get in the rear you just gotta push the seat up and front/up...

Not a total fail. Would be a total fail if the seats were rotted and worthless.
