Or get a used recaro/bride/sparco, etc seat from other forums/sales, finding the correct mounts, all for less than $500 maybe/per seat.
$500/seat with hardware? The seat will probably be beat up. You'd have to get lucky and find someone letting go of a good condition one. Also depends on brand and model.

yeah right, $500 for seats and mounts in good condition is like finding performance seats for $1500 each lol

Haha nah our angle observation skills were just not there today. They are 80mm, I want to go bigger though. It's just the metal pointing a different way. I'll fix it later.

He has a Nissan 350Z and the other guy, had/has a Lancer. I say "had" because got a DUI and rolled it. Either way, completely clueless about the E90 as he believed they have V6s, and then when I corrected that mistake, went on to say the straight-6 in the M5 is good, which I corrected once more. Then it was compared to a Camry, then that a Kia Optima would be a better buy.

Suddenly it was like I said my NA could beat his 350Z when I never did LOL. Car and Driver praised their engine, I think he overlooked that Car and Driver praised the 3Series for 22 years in a row in its Top 10.
