I'm looking for the seats with real leather and thigh support to replace my leatherette seats. Found a nice set out of an E36. Seems that the only ones that are interchangeable are the E38s.

E36 Seats in E39?

I've had this problem for years, only when it's sunny. If I push up on the glass while it's closing, it will clear the deflector just fine. I will, however, try this fix.
