Almost exact situation I have. I bought my Silver 88 ///M3 about 3 months ago and the seats were died black (P.O. must have never conditioned them!) and are in sorry shape now. How much did you pay for yours? A guy in San Francisco wants 1000 for the pair? Good or bad deal? Thanks for your help.

I bought Vaders a few months ago and love them compaired to my old seats. They do not bolt right in though, you have to drill two holes per side through your floorboard. Don't let that scare you off though if you really like them - it's not a big deal. You'll have to buy fasteners to bolt them down. One problem that I had was that they were sold to me without seatbelt recepticles (female attachments) so I had to use the ones from my old seats, they mount using a nut that was almost impossible to find (the corrcect size) to fit the Vaders. So be sure you get those pieces with the purchase. Also, be aware that these seats are a bit heavier than your stock seats, but if it's your daily driver I don't think it'll matter that much. Besides they look great, and the leather is much nicer than the cracked set that I replaced (P.O. must of never conditioned them). Good luck..
