Pretty damn good. To bad you'll need harnesses too.

Here they are!! Shop sent me photos today... Shipping out tomorrow!
I will take better photos when I receive the seats. I asked them why
the seats were shiny and they said they just finished wiping them down
with cloth and water to clean it. I am excited! STAY TUNED!

Imola red looks cinnamon when photos are done in bad lighting... I will take better photos when they get delivered to me.

Seats arrived today! They got delivered here at work so I promise to take better photos tonight. I was able to take a peek at one of the seats and took 1 photo just to make sure that they are good. I also matched the color to my OEM headrest and color is spot on! Expect install day tomorrow!

Unpacked the seats when I got home from work. Inspected them and made sure that the color and stitches are good. I am very happy to say that they are pretty damn spot on! I took some photos with my OEM headrest beside the seats to show color match. You be the judge. Will be having dinner out with wifey then will take better photos when I get back with a real camera.












And the occupancy mat sensor connector snaked under the seat..

And I personally don't think the matching of the color could get any better! Congrats!

Can you tell me if these sit lower than stock M3 seats?
I need more headroom. Aftermarket sunroof delete is a bit extreme.

I'm almost certain they are lower than stock seats. Tbh the stock seats don't go low enough and I'm relatively short
