BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Mein Auto: 2011 128i
2011 128i w/ standard seats. want sport seats, is that an option?

i Hey all!

I am new to these forums, but not to BMWs. I own a 2011 128i, and up until a few weeks ago, had not ridden in any BMW that had the new power sport seats with the manually adjustable leg rests. Well I got one as a loaner car and MAN did they feel awesome.

It was like I was riding in a completely different car. The seats grabbed on to my back and felt like they would really hold me in place!

Now I have taken my car to the track with the standard seats, and they are fine so long as I get my seatbelt really tight, but I would really love to have the sports seats installed in my car.

Does anybody know if this is an option that I can order through my dealer or through anywhere else? I understand aftermarket seats could possibly be even more comfortable and better for the track, but this is still my daily driver so I am interested in power adjustments with the sport seats.

If anybody has had any experience with this or knows a good place to go for these your input would be really appreciated!!

As mr29 says, it comes down to cost.

Try searching for used seats from a salvage yard for a good deal if you'd like to stay with factory sport seats. Bavarian Auto Recycling is the first one that comes to mind. There's probably others.
