Hi I was thinking about upgrading the standard seats in my compact to something more supportive and sporty feeling. The most obvious option is getting a whole sport E46compact interior. The difficulty there is they don't seem to come up to often on ebay. Are the compact sports seats a big upgrade on the standard seats?
Another option would be to get sports seats from another type of E46 or even an E36. Would they fit? I know the rears would not but I have a black interior and if I got black front seats I could just leave the rears as they are.
The last option would be to possibly take my seats to an upholsters(there is a specialist coachtrimmer locally) and see if they could just add side bolsters to my standard seats(which are in good condition) and turn them into more sporty feeling seats. This would maybe be cheaper and would not require me removing and replacing a car interior. But I am not sure if it could actually be done.
Any suggestions or advice welcome.
