Any ideas on where to find Manual M3 seats?

Hey eXX cousins, I have a 135i msport that I regularly track, but am 6'4" and would like a bit more more headroom for my helmet. I want airbags and don't want race buckets, since I street drive the car a lot too (not my daily driver though).

I know that the manual m3 seats fit and sit about an inch lower, but I am having the hardest time finding a pair. Ideally, I want the sport cloth ones, but I know that might be a bridge too far.

Any ideas on where to look? Here's what I've done so far.
  • Searched for sale forum here and am going to posted a WTB thread today.
  • Seached car-part.com
  • Tried to find the part number on realoem.com, but it can't find a part number for the full assembly

I suppose I could just go to the local dealer, but I can only imagine what they'd cost, if they're even available.

Any ideas on what else I could be doing to find a pair?

There are track seats that are barely more aggressive than stock, like the Sportster CS or whatever its called

Maybe it's possible to swap in manual seat rails on your current electric seats?

My E92 has manual cloth seats, my E90 has manual cloth seats, my CS came with electric seats and I swapped them for buckets and changed the OEM electric rails to OEM manual ones

Shoot. I have black, but thatís probably not a good match. Iíll take a look on car-part.com and see if I see any.

Thanks for the suggestions. Iím going to unbolt one of the seats this weekend and see if it looks like the manual rails would work. I always think race seat when I think aftermarket, so hadnít really looked into something like a sportster cs or something.
