I've just purchased some M3 seats also so I'd be very interested to find out if I can just install these straight in to my X5.

I would get a micrometer and mic the thickness of the plate buckle that you insert into seat receiver. I installed comfort on my X5 and everything fit find except the belt plate buckle in my X5 was thicker so I could not push it into the receiver. I just swap the receiver from my old seat with the new set. If you don't have heated seats already you will need to swap the control above the ash tray on the console for one with the heated seat controls in it.

Question on E46 ///M3 seats into E53

BTW the E46 sport seats came from 4 doors model ( NON M3) will looks better and color match then those M3 seats.http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...ics-added.html

Hey, mrbmwx5 — tried to pm you but it wouldn’t accept. Couldn’t find any other threads on e92 seats in e53. Is that what you had done? Looking to put e92 m3 seats in my 4.6is. Have a set in me 335i and find th to be absolutely perfect for sports and comfort. Thanks!
