Need advice choosing the race seats?

I have a 2006 M6 currently having a 5.5l 13:2.1CF/methanol being put in. It's not a track car it's just a weekend car. I've been searching for used E46 race seats since they are a direct fit. The problem is I am an amateur bodybuilder 6' 250lbs very wide. My wife is 5' 112lbs lol. Will I have to get 2 different sizes?

Also there are so many options I have no idea where to begin. I want light weight and prefer black leather/leatherette with carbon fiber shell. I heard BRIDE is a much cheaper yet still high-quality alternative to Recaro but I just don't know where to begin looking? Thank you for the advice.

I'm late as hell but this is a huge help because I bought seats sight unseen and put them in my auto cross car. VERY hard and tight seats and I'm a small build dude.

While doing DE just get something simple like a Sparco Sprint, New its $375 but I would buy a used out of date seat, prob. $200. When you are acquiring your liscense and AT THAT TIME buying belts with proper dating, fire stuff, window net, kill switch...etc. You can spend money on a seat that is in Date and by that time you likely will have had the chance to talk to folks about their seats, and have sat in them.
