i would be really interested as well, I have some really beat up 86 325es seats and if I could replace with some power e36 seats that would be awesome. I'm gunna do some research and see what I can find.

An old member named Jordan fit e36 Vaders into his e30. You might want to pm him and see if he'll help you.

Power seats fit as well, you just have to get creative with the wiring.

It's not really that difficult as far as I know. Power and ground connecting.
