WTB: electric sport seats, any color

Post by thelastastronaut » Thu Jun 04, 2020 5:07 pm

I know this is a long shot, but..... i just bought a gorgeous survivor '88 635csi 5-speed. It's the poor man's M635 and I love everything about the car except these terrible 'comfort seats' (what a misnomer!).

I am looking for a pair of powered later E24 sport seats...ideally 'silber' (the light grey), but the color likely doesn't matter as i am going to have them completely redone anyway. I'm guessing (at least in the US) i think the only '88-89 E24 sport seats made would be out of an M6, but i'm not sure in Europe.

I know of a set of '88 M3 manual seats available in my area, but before i buy those, i want to try and keep it E24 and powered.

I'd be happy with '85-87 seats, but...does anyone know if the seats are '87 or older, will i need a special wiring harness or anything to get the power controls to work? Also, does anyone have recomendations on the best shop for rebuilding BMW sport seats?

Semi-reformed P-car guy and newbie here to the sharktank, so apologize in advance if this inquiry smacks of ignorance...thanks!!

I have a complete 89 Highline interior which I will be removing from my 635 highline based in the UK though.

Thanks...I’m assuming the highline package in ‘89 meant sport seats. What color and condition?
