    The seats in the M6 are original. Rather than spend a large fortune having them redone, I am considering spendng a small fortune on Torinos. I can get them for much less than retail.

    I am 6'1, 210 - fairly big. Would I fit into these things?

    Grassy ass.

    Dammit. I am very broad shouldered. They are a good deal too.

    Shit.

    What are those? I could not find 'em.

    I like the simple look of the SRDs. They are not too expensive either.

    Corbeau - Carrera, A4, GTS2, or Prosport all look like the *might* fit you. I can't find a pic of the Torino's so i can't really compare the Corbeau's to anything. And most all of the Recaro's seem to be pretty big too.

    Hmm.

    This place has wide (up to 40" waist) A4's for $640 a pair. I wonder what the quality is like. I have seen some old 2002s with worn out bolsters on Corbeaus, but I suppose that happens after a while.

    Get the Recaro's. Quality is superior to most other seats and you should've have a problem getting into them.

    My good friend has them in his e30, very nice comfortable seats.

    Besides, you can always reupholster them and say they're out of an E30 M3 Evo :p

    Actually, I'm considering redoing my leather OEM Recaros in Alpina fabric but I don't think it would go.

    Most of our busses have those as the drivers seats now. They look comfy.
