Sport vs. Non-sport
 
Did some searching, but would still like some more opinions. I've been debating picking up sport seats, but I'm not sure if its worth the cost. For those of you that have had both or at least been in both for a decent amount of time, do you think it is worth the cost to grab the sport seats?

Yessss.

They definitely look better, but keep your options open.

Yes.

The sport package is really worth the money. Had a premium noon sport before, have a sport non premium now and I am happier with it.

The sports seats are honestly my favorite part of my E46... I can't imagine not having em

how so?

They seem to just cradle your entire body, at least thats how it feels to me. You just feel much more in tune with the car. I hate non sport seats in cars, it feels like you're sitting in an office chair. Honestly, ask someone who has sports seats if you can drive their car around for a while to really get a feel for them. Oh, and the lower slide-out bridge (or whatever you wanna call it) is amazing on your legs for long drives

The sport seats look better, but aren't noticeably more comfortable. I do feel the difference when driving on curves though.

If you're considering dropping the dough for sport seats, consider going for M3 seats. They may even be more common on the market.

When the E46 was being reviewed by Car & Driver, the ZSP package was considered a must. The cost/content ratio made it a raging bargain!!! The quote I recall on the sport seats was "these are the seats from Gods own sportscar":thumbsup:

thats the point, they aren't supposed to be more comforatable, they are supposed to be more supportive

I found the stock standand seats in my car so bad, (hard, nonsupportive, would let me slide around in corners) that I was ready to sell the car. Fournatley I found a member on this site selling a set of M3 seats. Plug and play installation, worth every dime, and the best mod I have made to my car...

I want M or Sport seats so bad but they never made the M seats in tan (and I am not dying anything) and the sport seats are so hard to come by (in tan for sale) :banghead:

Either set would make such a difference in my interior...

Yup, the difference is night and day. You really sit IN the sports seats as opposed to sitting ON the non-sports seats. Well worth it. My father's e46 has the non-sports while mine rocks the sports, and it feels horrible sitting in the non-sports versions once you've become accustomed to the sports.

That is exactly what i want to do... no joke dude, you read my mind. Problem is, i can't find them anywhere :(

JJR4884 04-27-2010 08:40 AM

how much are you willing to pay chase?

have you checked out www.car-part.com

you'd be suprised what you can find there... i found tanin red for $600 (complete) but it was for a sedan....

the only issue is... shipping will be a hassle and will probably cost as much as the seats... i'll keep an eye out for you tho
