Crap... I need to know if the m3 seats will fit in the back of my 325 sedan...
Like if i flip them upside down
Can i fit two seats? Will they fit through the door? Or should i just ask my friend to take his suv with me?

You can look at the label on the DME, but they rarely update the P/N on the case when they reflash it. Best bet is to use some sort of OEM software (dealer or factory).

I don't remember the best combos off the top of my head. I think there's a thread on e30tech or r3v about what options you have and which ones give you the best offsets.

Sedans can fit everything.

You won't have much visibility out of the back window and you'll be smushed up front like an azn driver, too.

yeah i was thinking of doing that for sure
since the rear bench just pulls out, no screws involved

i am pretty sure the seats will fit in the back... just need to know whether they will fit through the door... because even putting moving boxes in the back have been troublesome because the doors only open to a certain angle

Clearly you're not very good at playing Tetris.
