    Hey guys :dw: Having started the stripping of my E36 320i interior and purchasing some Sparco bucket seats from off here, just wondering how you guys have your seats mounted? The raised mounts on the BMW floor seem to get in the way of any sort of Rail including the ones on my seats already so if anyone has/can take pictures of how they got their seats in, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks :thumbs:

    I remember someone saying about the Bucket seats are usually offset to the right a bit on the standard mounts? and had to be shifted over towards the centre more so your sat inline with the steering wheel.

    What he said tbh mate. Use some plate to bolt to the floor and then bolt your sidemounts to that. Its pretty simple tbh.
    Try and move the seat in towards the tunnel as much as you can, I have flipped my inner sidemount to move it closer so it kinda looks like this LL
