Vaders in 4 door M3's

Did the 4 door M3's come with non-Vader seats out of the factory? I'm guessing they can be simply replaced right?

But i've seen 2 (maybe 3) 4 dr M3's that have the plain seats. I doubt anyone would swap the sport seats with the plain ones...i dunno.

Why not? Its basically the exact same thing as the coupe, except for another 2 doors. Sure it doesn't looks as sporty as it should but the extra room is great

You know what else is cool, it's kind of a sleeper, b/c like the M5, you can blow the doors off a lot of cars with a 4 door...reminds of my friends Mazda 323GTX...smokes Porsche Boxsters, Mustangs etc...and it's a Mazda hatch-back.

Plain seats and sport seats look pretty much the same
M3 Sport seats use softer leather and got M stripes(there are a couple of m3s that dont have those)

Sport seat


regular seats

Sorry, when I said sport seats, I was actually referring to M3 seats (Vaders).

323GTX's are awesome, 4door M3's are even more awesome, and i would buy one is a heartbeat if i had the money, and vaders are 1 of the nicest and most comfortable factory seats i have ever been in....

M3 4 doors are also stiffer than a 2 door (might even be lighter if I am not mistaken, but don't quote me on that one)

Honestly, I love how M3/4's look, esp with LTR wings (w/o extensions) and in purple..
