E46 M3 interior possible retrofit E46 330CI?

Hi, first time i needed to post here. Have always found the info searching before, so i guess i should say hello and i'm "new" here!

So i hopefully have a simple question about fitting the e46 m3 interior, seats(front and rear), door panels and side panels rear. Is it a bolt on/plug and play, no modifications needed? If modifications is needed which are they?

If i have missed a thread were they answere this i'm sorry but my searching skills is obviously lacking then.

Thanks
Alfred

Welcome. Everything should swap fairly easily. The door panels, rear panels, and rear seats can be done in 30 minutes or less, real easy job. Bavsound.com has videos showing how to do all this. Look a the video for speak upgrade for door and rear trim as well as their Bluetooth dealio for rear seat.
Never took the front seats out on the E46 but did on an E30 and it was easy. Four bolts per seat. I think the only difference is you want to make sure you disconnect the battery to avoid SRS related errors.

My $.02.

I have had the seats out before for cleaning and i did forget to disconnect the battery. i already had booked a time for service anyways sos they fixed the airbag light then.

Thanks for the info! Now i'm one step closer to buying that m3 interior!

Brown skin with carbonfiber trim, the make it or break it is if they are willing to send all the interior trim or not. I think it will look great in my orientblau metallic 330CI
