[ Follow Ups ] [ E30 M3 Message Board ] [ Msg. Board FAQ ]

Posted by Jeff87is on May 23, 2001 at 12:14:43:

I just purchased and installed the rear seat from an E30 M3 into my '87 325is. Big improvement over the stock item, but now I'm looking into recovering the fronts in the same pattern ($$$), even though they've currently under sheepskins. My question is, how are the seat belts bolted to the body? According to the BMW parts CD, the two-receptacle component in the M3 is the same part found in other E30s; it's merely located at the center rather than off to the driver's side. However, I couldn't feel any bolt or covered hole under the sound insulation beneath the seat to enable relocation to the center. In an M3, is this part bolted directly to the body, as in other E30s, but at the center or is there some adaptation to use one of the existing threaded holes? If no hole exists in the body of my car to accommodate relocation of this part(which I find hard to fathom), I guess I'll have to drill and tap one on my own. Would greatly appreciate it if one of you could take a moment to look under their rear seat and let me know. TIA
