It looks like you have an e92, so those seats will not work for me. My performance seats actually will fit either e90 or e92.

Thank you sir. Still a feeler, but we shall see. Other than the folding lever, the difference is that the seatbelt attaches to the floor on the coupe and the seat on the sedan. Aleks at Alekshop made a custom removable piece for the sliders that allows the seat belt to connect.

The other day I started to look at 997 and 991 turbos as offers came in for my parts and my initial thoughts were "could use some wheels and probably an exhaust", so maybe I should keep this car as is for awhile and enjoy it completely built a bit longer. That's where my head is at right now.

You know you won't be able to keep any car stock.

Bro I bought a 997.2 Turbo S because it had the new 3.8 DI motor (same as 991 Turbos) and 0-60 in 2.7 seconds and 10.8@128 stock and didn't think anyone had mods for it yet...or that something like that even needed mods. Well 10 months later and, well, you can guess what has happened.

19 BBS FI wheels in gloss titanium w/ tires that have 1 track day left in them. No scratches or rash: $7000 + shipping/Paypal fees

Brembo 380 F/R in Fire Orange w/ fairly new Endless pads 10k miles: $5000 + shipping/Paypal

Ohlins R&T DFV Coilovers with Vorshlag camber plates 2.5k miles (previous estimate was incorrect after looking at time of install): $3000

BMW Performance Seats PENDING in search of OEM heated black leather front seats

Dinan mid-pipe - $1200 and would prefer not to ship

Thanks,
Joel
