Sport seats question

Are these seats as wide or adjustable to the same width as regular seats? would like the canyon brown package but not sure if the sport seats will accomodaste a full figured guy & no local dealer has any in stock to sit in

Sport seats differ in that there is an adjustable extension under your thighs and adjustable side bolsters (they move away or toward your torso) I could see if your big (read: wide) you might have a problem with the side bolsters not being wide enough. Better find some seats to try out. The sports seats are great to have, but ordering them and not being comfortable would be bad, bad, bad.

I'm fairly wide and the sport seats in my 335is have been great, especially the thigh extender. The bolsters have been no problem, in fact I don't have them all the way out. My Z4 does not have sport seats.
