  • Vader Seats Installation?

    Does anyone know the right measurements for the metal brackets that need to be made for the Vader Seats, in order for them to fit? I found a website where a person had them installed in his e30 and I tried to follow the directions but it seems like my brackets are still little bit off. I also tried the "search" and couldn’t find anything related, as far as installation goes. If you have any information on this let me know.

    Thanks guys,
    Chris

    Don't do it! Those seats are extremely heavy!

      ^^Yes, if you're going to change the seats go for the Recaro SRD or Speed seats, they are much more suited for the E30 M3 IMO.

        Well guys, I understand that the Vaders are heavy but I'm not going to track the car so it is not an issue for me. The car has being restored and it will be for sale late November. I just like the way that the Vaders look in the car plus they are pretty comfortable, at least for me I'm 6.2 and those little stock recaro seats dont do it for me.
