Looking for a sensatec driver seat with manual adjustment in sport configuration. I posted earlier about uncomfortable basic seats but think the manual adjust will help me versus electric and specifically the sport ones in softer sensatec.

Do you have an option code for this? Can you source a part #? Or maybe combine the sport seat and the manual base and sell the spare parts?

Where? In USA? Wouldn't that have to be a 320? Not familiar with 320 option packages--can you get sport seats in a 320 wo Sports Pkg? And if not, does Sports Pkg have power seats?

You were looking for a BMW "comfort" seat and expressed concern about height in your other post. That seat type is not familiar to me. Now you are looking for a sport seat. I think you need to better identify the problems you plan to solve with either used or new seats before plunking down what could be a considerable amount of cash. A manually adjusted seat would likely not have the range of adjustment and could be missing a lumbar adjustment in an electric seat. The manual seat may not even have heating if that is a consideration.

For whatever it is worth my F30 has non-sport fully electric leather seats. My wife and I have no problem getting the correct height, rake and distance and we're 5' and 6' tall respectively.

There may be solutions for your existing seats we could offer if you could be more specific about what needs fixing.
