These seats were originally built for E-series cars so the yellow wiring plug underneath had to be swapped over to an F-series plug.
This is simple enough for the airbag system but not so simple for the heating function, as they are alcantara though they don't get that cold so I left it as is.
Seat frames fitted perfectly.

What do you need to complete this? (except for the seat obviously)
Where to source it? Never swaped seats before so this is all new to me.
Looks mega!

Nothing beats OEM...Carbon Structure F82 M4 seats! Power and heating intact in my opinion the best replacement option and the cloth matches our dry carbon interior trim quite well...in before the "Competition"

I love the cloth look in your car. Nice going.

I was looking into picking up a set of the GTS seats since they have manual adjustments but it seems their owners think those should be priced like Porsche GT2 Carbon Buckets. (PCA ad has a set for 10k which is about what 2 people I spoke to wanted for their GTS seats.)

Its mind boggling to me that BMW offers a retrofit roof option and not a performance seat option. Sure there were the OEM track seats but pricing was insane. I would buy M4 seats for this car immediately if they were available.

I put an M Performance seat (same as Recaro Sportster CS) in my M2. It looked awesome but it sat higher and I couldn't fit my helmet on I'm only 5'11 as well

Straight to the floor. They bolt straight in, but they were designed for the e series which must have a higher roof

Wait.. seriously? Higher!? I didn't think that was possible. Also you must have a sunroof? The M2 has a bizarrely high roof height. As for the OEM seats I already feel like I am driving a truck at times.

No sunroof here. It's bizarre I know but the base of the M Performance seat must be much thicker or something.
