Called on some BMW E30 sport seats (Recaro style BMW Knockoff) on Craigslist. Before I could get out to see them I searched on this site to see if they would fit. One guy said, yea they will fit but you should look at E21 seats "They're sexier". So quick google image search and I had to agree, they are cool. The pattern is quite similar to stock across the top. I could actually see them reupholstered in original style two tone blue materials of my stock seats.
So I go to look at the E30 seats and ask him about E21 seats, well, see the photos, Turns out he had a decent set he was saving. They are Recaros offered as an option on 320is, so the story goes.
I have to figure out how to mount them, I have ideas but if there are any lessons learned out there, let em fly. I would probably move the seats backwards an inch, has anyone done a perch at the rear down the the floor or does everyone just cantelever the new seats?
BTW, note the stock shift boot, vintage Hurst shifter and unmolested transmission hump hiding a Tremec. Finally got everything buttoned up this winter.
