I don't know if your thinking of the same thing I am, but I seem to recall IND having some sort of rear seat delete mod that replaced the seat with a whole bunch of CF panels. I would keep the stock front seats, do the IND CF panels and add the roll cage. I'm sure your little girl would love the race car like feel with the roll cage. I know I would.

The plan was to install the Recaro Pole Positions seats, a roll cage (painted either AW or Brembo yellow), and the rear seat delete, but that will give me some issues...

I pick up my daughter from school with this car. If I have the rear-seat delete she needs to sit in the front (she did that in the Cayman, and she loves that - obviously), but if I have the Recaros I would need to disable the airbag since the weight sensor will be gone... and that would mean that any regular adult passenger would't have an airbag (I could have them fill out a track disclaimer form every time someone rides with me )

So here are my options:

Keep the stock seats - do the rear-seat delete and add the roll-cage. I think that would look pretty badass.

Or..

Do the Recaro seats, keep the rear-seat for the kid and skip the roll-cage. Probably the best choice for daily living...

What do you guys think?

But there is a great "poor-man's" close-out option some folks did here including Rich (one of the moderators)... it looks pretty good, basically just carpet.

But yeah, I'm leaning a little towards the roll-cage as well.
do the pole positions and keep the rear seats! or whatever you do, get pole positions! lol

Either way you can't go wrong, but for sharing the M3 fun with your kid (priceless) and Daily Driving purposes, Option A (Keep Front Seats, Roll Cage, Rear Seat Delete).

They do, those seats don't require side mounts either from what I remember, not 100% sure tho; but with hardware and everything installed those seats and the pole positions come out to around the same weight

Also, I need that roll cage, which is obviously related to the fact that I just turned 40.
I understand the need for a cage, now that I have one in the e36 its awesome, maybe just start with the cage and go from there, piece it together!

Philip - can't wait to see what you have lined up! Looks like you're off to a good start. Hope you decided to go for the roll bar.

So are you using seat sliders with the OMP seats? Will they slide forward enough to allow you to "squeeze" your daughter into the back seat? If the seat sliders are similar to Sparco's then good luck because I wasn't able to slide a Sparco Pro2000 very far forward in my e46 M3 - seat would hit the center console before running out of travel. Perhaps the e92 M3 won't have the same issue
