Coupe seats in a wagon?

Calling all E46 seat experts...

I am trying to find an E46 wagon with sport seats... I haven't had much luck, but recently found some sport seats from a coupe that I really like. Will they fit in the wagon?

Also, how much work will the seat swap be?

Also, part of the reason I want the sport seats is that I am quite tall and really like how the sport seats sit lower. If I replace the regular seats will the sport seats sit as low as they do in a car with stock sport seats?

Thanks for any help!

It can be done, just look at all the people that have retrofitted m3 seats into their sedan. It requires fabricating a bracket IIRC.

Should work fine....maybe tweaking the brackets a little, but probably not much more than that.
