Sport Seats?

Hi All,

I have a 2006 E90, looking to trade for an F30 soon. I'm looking at used vehicles and there's about 1% of them that have sport seats, why are people not looking to get sport seats anymore? They're a must in my head... Thoughts?

For US & CDN, sport seats are only available on Sport & M-sport models. It's not available on other trim lines.

Are there many used F30's out there yet. It's rare I see one on the road.

I have leatherette sport seats on the F30 and they are just as comfortable as my E60s were. Soooooo awesome!

I've had regular seats ,sport seats, and comfort seats in my E60's. Regular seats forget it. Sport are great in the F30 Sport. Comfort seats are the best and thats the only thing I miss in my F30 Good luck in what ever you choose.
cheers

You said it!!! Buy the sports seats for a complete F30 package. Great roadholding & great driver/front passenger holding.

For the Canadian market, sport seats are a stand alone option on 328i (or standard with Sportsline) and standard for all 335i variants.

I would never purchase a BMW without sport seats; they are a must have feature !

The side bolsters of the sport seats make your sides feel like they're in a wooden vice.

The sport seats are an absolute "skip" in my opinion.

Really? The side bolsters feel like you are in a vice? But they are adjustable for width. I'm pretty average sized and I feel great in them.

To be honest, the seats were a convincing feature that made me add the Sports Line (in Canada). They are highly adjustable for width, height and the thigh extensions. I love the car with them and would not go back on that option.

Just to specify, when I say "sport" seats, I mean the seats that have the movable piece in the front of it right?
