seats on ebay

whats the deal with these seats?? in the title it mentions almost every kind of bmw, and theres no way that they could possibly fit all types of bimmers.

Besides that, they look not too bad, but price seems a little low for a high quality seat.

anyone have any thoughts??

From what I can see they are a no name Seat.. Although they look very nice!
They come with Universal Sliders, Not seat brackets. So therefore you will need to make some seat bases to bolt onto the slider. Shipping is as much as the seat! If I were you, I would buy some nice e36 Vaders

They look awesome, too bad shipping is soo high. And yeha its a good point raised about about still needing bracket fabrication to work with the universal slider.

even though shipping is high, youd be getting two nice seats for 400$

And when you crash, the seat fails on you and you get a big piece of metal in you sphincter. Or more likely the seat back gives out and you become a human projectile, neither tickle my pickle.

Wow, those seats are really something, "custom stitched M logo" man, so then you and every honda civic driver will have the exact same seat made of cardboard except theirs will have a "custom stitched Dragon logo for extra speed" : )


IMO No Airbags + Seats Made in someones basement = deadly Combo

Only if they have the custom Logo....... But honestly, cardboard is pretty light so they will probably give you a good weight reduction.

If you really want the extra 15-20 HP get both the seats and this

^^^ listen to this man

i've heard horror stories of seats from ebay breaking (snapping back) while driving at WOT and getting people in accidents. Seats are one part you don't wanna skimp on.
