Retrofiting Sport Seats

Is it easily possible, if I can find some? Friday I traded in my 2012 A6 for a very low optioned 2011 E90 328i, based on the enjoyment I receive from my 2008 E92 335i. I find the sport seats very comfortable and the non-sports just ok. The seats are manual and I assume the sports seats are always electric.

For perspective, locate Recaro seats; sit in a few.

Thanks for the response.

Are you saying that Recaro seats would be easier to install, or more comfortable? Sorry to be dense.

The 328 will be my DD, if I can't resist the mod bug there are a few ideas I have for the 335. I just like the seats in my 335.

Sport seats can be manual. It would be a direct swap.
