I am totally pissed about this! Do you think there is anyway possible to get the euro seat bottoms from the factory? I am little! They look so bland without the revision! WTF

BMW, You suck for this.

I think everyone should call/email and make a big stink about it. I wonder if they are trying to cut costs or not. Not everyone in america is a fatass.

Went to BMW welt in Munich

The German spec test car I drove last week had the split bottoms, I have an American butt and legs, I found the upper part "MUCH" more supportive than
in my wifes 335 E93 ZSP I did notice a difference between the bottoms.

The M3s at the Nurburgring had the split seats as well. I again felt the Upper
seats as very supportive, the bottoms on my wifes car felt fine on the way
home but not as tight as the German Bottoms


I will also ask for Euro seat bottoms, however I will not pay the Euro price

the Euro car stickered in Germany for $88K Euro = $129K USD

Best of luck, I'd love to see you succeed but would also bet against it. Keep us posted.

I never knew they had a different base for the US market compared to the European market.

Is it a width thing, not wanting to offend anyone but is it a case that in general the US ass is big or something.

I find all of this extremely funny.

Stop smoking if you do smoke and go to a body building club and you will se the difference in a few months.

P.S. That is what I have done.

Stinky, according to this pic from the Toronto show, it looks like Canadians have the same fat ass disease as our American neighbours. I agree with everyone else, that really pisses me off. The interior is low key enough without the blah seat bottoms.

While you're at it, ask them why the rev counter doesn't correctly display the 8400 rpm redline?
I still have a problem with that, but noone seems to care on here.

Argh ! I read that training material months ago, and noticed the seat difference comment. It bugged me back then ... but then I forgot all about it :-) Thanks for reminding me about this and showing me the difference. Very disappointing.

It might be possible to order the non-US bottom foam and upholstery and have it retrofitted. Not inexpensive, though.

Over here the glovebox is measured in cubic litres, in the US it's by the amount of donuts it holds.

I knew there was a reason why there's a +85.000euro (+125.000USD) amount mentioned on my order.

Must be pretty expensive foam considering the differences I can see with the US price list.

Unfortunately, you might have a hyperactive thyroid [BTW, not good news]

I drove a euro spec M3 in Germany and I noticed immediately that the seats were very comfortable and snug. However, and yes I would love these seats over here, while driving I was thinking are they okay for the average American? I guess BMW has come to the conclusion that the answer is NO!

Does anyone have a link for the PDF version of the U.S. brochure? Not the Euro brochure stickied at the top of the page. I want to see if the Euro seats are in there.
