I just want the seats, but as others have said, the brochure clearly states they wont be sold in the U.S.

I dont know what the problem is with the people at BMW. Asses

For those who didn't recognise the AIRBAG lettering .

Sick accessories btw but the steering wheel is a lil bit too much for me.

p.s. love the carbon fiber trim!!!
im pretty sure they are Recaro Sportster CS's

Driver's side is at $1400 on speedware motorsports so id imagine BMW would put it at least at $2000, $4000-4500 for the set

They have airbags. Look closer. I want. Badly.

BMW charges 5k for the set of M seats for a Z4.

I agree that those indeed do look like Recaro Sportster CS seats reupholstered. It's sold as an OEM seat from other manufacturers like Renault and Audi.

Being that is has an airbag, I would price those seats at 3-5k each.

I'll stick to the non BMW branded Sportsters thanks.
