    Hi all.

    Ive just purchased my first skidder. An 1.8 E46 saloon. Im looking for cheap bucket seat and coilovers but not sure what i should be looking for, other than that they fit my model.

    For bucket seats, will i need some brackets/mounts or do they bolt straight to floor? or do i rip the mount of my original seats?

    For coilovers my friend said ill need to purchase adjustable top mounts aswell (if they dont come with them) is this true? if so, anything else i should look for?

    Many thanks.

    If you can find a bucket seat that you fit in, that also has a rail to fit an E46 then that's a bonus! Always good getting a seat that you know will bolt straight in, otherwise you may have to get a bracket made up to mate the seat with your original seat mounts

    Coilovers, you don't NEED adjustable top mounts, they just help give you a little more/less camber depending on the spec of your car which can help with drifting :)
