The minimal extra money was worth it to minimize downtime to the car imo.

OE seats and wiring are 100% untouched.

Can you describe how you did the wiring? Looks like there is a black wire coming from the vehicle harness to one of the terminals on the switch- do all of the brown wires (ones coming from the vehicle harness and the motors) all get tied in to the one terminal on the switch?

Sorry I missed this earlier....

There is no black wire, just black heat shrink.
There are 2 brown (-12v ) one red hot (+12v)
and two switched +12v blue & green

Where are you guys getting me these oe manual silders. I only find the power sliders. My e92 had the power slider but long gone with the or seats.

How can I get a set of manual oe slider so I can use the bk seat mounts.

Thanks.

This past weekend we installed fixed back seats along with the BK hardware (seat mounts, harness bar) on the M3 CS!!

I don't get over how much better the OEM sliders feel vs the Recaro or Sparco sliders we've used in the best. The seat feels much more stable in the OEM ones

Thank you Brey Krause for making this awesome solution for us!

Is this the half cage to get if I want to still carry wheels in the rear seats? I figure I want to fit 3 wheels in the rear, one can sit in the trunk like I do today.

I would get the high angle version so stuff can pass through trunk area. Not immediately buying buy thinking ahead...

Getting wheels into an E92 seems like a PITA as is without any cage, with one it will probably be a real challenge.

Truth - it is a process. I've kept my passenger seat stock for this specific purpose. Fold that one forward and move it up to get some space, get 3 wheels into the folded down rear seats. Then one into trunk. Rest of my track gear goes in trunk.

Taking the thread back to its roots! Carrying 4 wheels in an E92 with driver and passenger fixed back seats and a BK harness bar. Basically you just put one wheel in through the trunk and push it into the back seat. Then you come around to the front and pick it up and set it on top of the harness bar cross-member. Then put one more in the back seat via the trunk, one more just sitting in the trunk, and one riding shotgun! If you were really determined, you could put 3 in the back seat by putting 1 on each side cross-member, but that's too much work for me. Kind of crappy pics, but hopefully you get the gist.
