OEM M3 Speed Cloth + Powered Seat Retrofit Complete

Thanks to Woodpecka for posting a DIY on retrofitting power seats. I've recently finished swapping out a set of manual non sport seats for a set of powered M3 Black Leather/Speed Cloth seats with memory and lumbar. I bought all the necessary pins/connectors from BMW to create a "factory" harness and everything works perfectly! Now here are some pics:




In this pic you can see a comparison between the passenger M3 seat and the driver oem seat:





One exterior shot!

Yeh these are perfect for the track...got them from VS Motorsporta since they swapped in Recaro's for their project car. Unfortunately one of the headrests were damaged in transit so hopefully I'll get that all sorted out.

Thanks...the only thing I miss about my manual seats is the speed at which I can push the front seats forward in order to get to the backseats...these seat motors are soooo slow!!!

Fantastic work, I love the M3 seat design!

I wish our 335s had options for cloth seats in the states.
