Does anyone know if it's possible to put a power seat in a originally non-power E46 M3? I want standard power seats without heat and without lumbar, just power.

Which parts would I need and are there any modifications necessary? Thanks!

how much are they worth?
maybe start searching the 'for sale' section for prices. I'll do a trade if you're willing. I have standard powered seats in black leather.

are yours heated and powered? and what color?

I know it is possible. ac325ci swapped seats with someone to get sport seats. His non-sport were power and the sport seats were not. And he managed to get the power seats to work.

I'm all in on this. I need to get rid of my Premium Package seats and pick up some sport-seats, or M3 seats. Got gray leather, but I can work around THAT problem!

I bet if we're to do a direct swap then it'll be a matter of just swaping everything. Still wondering if yours is powered/heated and what color.

Thanks

The best way to tell, and I am 99% sure you can just get them and plug them in, is to look under your existing seats for any wiring harnesses ( you may have to remove one to do so) BMWs are prewired for heated seats, I am very sure they are prewired for power.

Now..about these m3 seats you have to sell..color? price?
