Do Corbeau FX1 seats fit E92?

The title is my main question. I looking at a pair for $400-450 tomorrow. I know these are not FIA approved, but I'm not racing any time soon, just DEs. I'm a 5'10" 250lb fat dude with 38" waist, so I don't have too many options unf.

Just running these by the crew here:
Side mounts come with the seats.
I need a set of sliders and floor mounts, and code the SRS and MRS out, correct?

I'd email Corbeau and ask whether they fit an E92. I don't see why not ... if they don't fit an E92, what car would they fit?!

Can you get them without the side mounts? Personally I would go for the VAC race seat install kit which comes with the floor and side mounts. Get the slider kit as well.
You can install the seats yourself, which I did with turugara's help but it was a real b#$!%, I highly recommend having VAC do it for you.

Edit: I haven't coded anything out so there's two lights on my dash, seatbelt and an airbag light.

Ah, good call. I just called them up and they said it should fit. In fact they also have the side mount/slider/bracket assembly for E92.

So you got the seatbelt "bong" or no chimes at all and just the dash light?

That's great, then. Do they have the floor mounts too? If not I'd do the VAC ones ... but ask Corbeau which ones they recommend.

Better off getting the whole race seat installation kit from VAC, IMO, the quality of aftermarket kits can vary widely.

Yes I get a single chime when I turn the car on, same as if the seatbelt is not plugged in. Only sounds once. Beware the passenger has no airbags unless it's coded in.
