G29 seats in an E86

Anyone know if it's possible to retrofit the G29 seats in the E86? Not sure if anyone has seen such a retrofit.

Newest Gen Z4. I like the seats and the polar stitching.

Cool, any idea why they changed the designation to G? We've been at E for so long?

With the plethora of models that now carry their own chassis numbers instead of just one for an entire series, BMW has been moving quickly through "Engineering Series" chassis numbers.

They now have a dizzying number of chassis designations that can be a challenge to recall.

Did you miss the F too?

I just actually saw a post on instagram of somebody's Z4 with Honda S2000 seats in it. Looked pretty good.

They are 100% better than the stock non-M seats. I would go as far to say better than M seats. They offer headrest adjustment and for me that is heaven.
