One thing though, because I myself was interested in them, I noticed that the bolsters are not really as aggressive as they could be. I kind of wish they were protruding a little more. currently they look similar to how much OEM bolsters stick out.

Either way. We love your style big papi!
Have you sat in them? These are so comfy with tons of support. I went to EAS showroom and sat in all of their seat samples and nothing compared to these

These are more agressive than oem in everyway. side and especially bottom bolsters are dramatically more agressive, I will post comparison side by side when I'm installing. The most agressive I would like to go without going into a fixed bucket. I prefer no holes in my seats though

THAT is rad. Great support, hopefully a touch lower, better looking AND you retain airbags and proper 3 pt street belts.

Hard to achieve with fixed back seats.

Yes seating position is about 1" lower I believe. I'll post and give better comparison once installed

Yep the only fixed back option that retains is the euro GTS seats but even with those you do loose the back seats in coupe

Interesting - i trust your judgement and canít wIt to see them on your car.

If I can fit a harness through them I might be tempted.
Already reached out to the company and they quoted me. Pretty $$$ but maybe worth it.

Maybe put in a good for for your Polish friend in exchange for YT promo? Hehe

The best F80 M3 build I have seen. I only dream of achieving something similar w/a Laguna Seca Blue build.
