: If I bought aftermarket seats, would it affect the warranty?

: thinking, maybe the sports package w/ 16" would work.

Recaros are NOT included in the sports package. (Recaros are like Kleenex, they are a brand not a type). The seats included in the sports package are made by Lear (i guess they also make the standard seats but i am not positive)

unlike other BMWs, there is not a sports package that is optional on the Z3. relative to other BMWs it already has a sports package

alos- in your situation, go for the 16s
