Seats

Has anyone ever tried to put MINI seats into a older BMW. I have a 1992 325is and the front seats are pretty much trashed and my wife got some leather MINI seats for her MINI and i was gonna use her cloth ones if i can do it.

Never heard of anyone putting MINI seats in a BMW, but anything can be done with enough ingenuity. They won't look very good, though. You will, however, run into numerous roadblocks along the way. The seats in your BMW have occupancy sensors which, if not hooked up, will trigger the SRS warning light. Also, many modern seats have side airbags in them, which would be problematic (i.e. dangerous) if installed into a car that was not designed for them. I'm not sure if your MINI seats have airbags in them, however.
