    Looking at other ways of finding a rear bench in black leather for my car, cant see there be too many differences in the E46?

    Can it be done?

    Personally, I don't think they would, but feel free to prove me wrong. Easiest way to find out if no-one is sure:

    Go to a breakers, find an E46 with rear seats, attempt to fit.

    If they fit, great. If not, at least you hadn't forked out on them!

    It'll be interesting to know how you get on if you do try it, though.

    yes true, would be good as well, because the E46 M3 seats should fit... but I must admit, would much prefer vadars... look so much more in line with the car, really make it look good.

    I agree, they do look the business. I'm happy with the ones I got, which I found before I ever knew about Vaders.

    Here's them.

    If you haven't seen it, here are my plans!

    I did a quick google search and it seems you need to mod them to fit.

    Moved to Bodywork and Styling.

    As already said, I don't think they will fit the E46 fitments are different.
