Serious work sir, and I agree the louvre isn't big enough lol, with some patience you'll source the right one!

The early E30 spoprts seats are Recaro's and have identical fittings, but as soon as BMW switched to their own sports seats (Sep 85 I believe) the runners are completely different which may require some creative welding to make them fit.
