I am a BMW fan (currently have a 06 330 ZHP) which is why I went with the Z3 seats. I looked at the e30 seats, but the ones I looked at mounted from the side and looked to be a pain to mount. They may not all be that way, but just be aware before you buy them off eBay. I got my Z3 in leather, with heat and power foir $150 plus shipping. They fit like a dream and really don't weigh too much more than the stock seats.

I'll be able to add '06/07 Miata seats to the mix. I went and measured and did the seat of the pants test at my dealer, liked 'em and bought a set off of ebay for $300, brand new (spec miata).

Should be here by next Friday. Also, if someone is interested, there are a set of Lotus Elise seats that are on ebay at this time. I bid on them once but then decided against due to the color - burgundy or red depending on how you look at them. Very cool though.

I think for this thread to be useful, we need to keep to swaps that actually have been completed with pics and fab info. I don't see any value in speculating what may fit. Just my opinion.

Kregan/summit leather racing seats fit if you remove the knobs off the ends. the only problem with them is that they raise you up from the floor about 2 inches. so if you are tall they are a no go. otherwise, great swap

the good thing about the 350z seats is they are a lot lower. I'm short, but I had to use 3 of the spacers that come with the stock seats to get the Z seats up to a decent height.

My car came with a plastic summit racing seat, and my helmet hit the roof. With 3 spacers I've still got over an inch of headroom with the helmet on. THe 350 seat rails sit above the seat bottom.

I got my eye out for a pair of those 350z seats.... I think they look and fit great. Looks like they came in the 240z...

I have DAD seats now, but will soon have those (if I can find a pair that is). :grin:

Looks great! How much fab'ing did it take to fit? What did you do to get it to fit? I owned a 2004 Touring model and the seat controls irritated me (on the thigh). I felt the hardness of the controls.

Thanks

thats why I like the non-power track seats better!

I drilled a couple holes in the stock sliders and put a bolt and nut through to make them immobile, then I cut off the handle.

Mounted angled bar stock across the stock sliders perpendicular

Cut the legs off of the Z seats

Mounted the Z seats sliders onto the bar stock.

The front drivers seat is height adjustable in the front part, so I needed something to hold the left and right sides together. I used a heavy cable and turnbuckle to tighten since I don't have a welder or fancy stuff like that.

Hey 2003Z

Which model 350Z came w/o electric controls. I thought they were all the same. The damn controls is one of reasons I traded it in for G35 Sedan.
That and those f..ing front tires.

Thanks

Thanks Mike,

I just did some checking on Car-Parts.Com and the local bone yards want $600.00 each! I'm not on budget but wow. You got a heck of a deal.

check out the classifieds on www.my350z.com Don't know if any are on there, but you'll probably find a better deal there.

I paid $55 for my mr2 seats at the JY, they had no rips or tears, just very dirty. nothing a bissell wouldn't fix. They weighed about 15-20lbs each tops, driver seat had manual adjustment for lumbar, bolsters, and thigh support: 10 way seat.

to swap in, jon miwa (jumbo240ez) helped me shove those in with aid of a mig welder and fabricating easy brackets from some materials from local orchard supply hardware. You can see progress and bracket pics in the link I provided above
