    Hey guys, the M3 Vaders I got need the back's of them replacing cos the passenger side one has broken. They are cardboard!?!?! They are 3 angled and look like the normal coupe backs, but can't remember.

    Does anyone know if the Vader and regular coupe backs are the same?

    Not sure to be honest but I would guess not..!
    But having said that, any upholsterer worth their salt will be able to repair or replace it anyway I would think.

    I had some Audi seats remade pretty much and they didnt use any OEM bits

    they do look very similar, have you got a set of normal coupe seats? if so unscrew the back (think its 2 or 3 srews holding them on) and put them in place to see if they measure up correctly

    No, don't have any coupe seats here. Gna pop over to scrappy next week, have a gander, but then that' mean having to buy 1 if not 2 whole seats just to get the back covers off them and chuck the rest. Unless someone knows of a pair of BLACK seats that are totally goosed with ok backs going cheap!!
