Thanks for weighting. For that little in weight savings, I think I'll look else where for a light weight seat.

Same here, also I am short which may affect it. I have no issues getting comfortable in either the M3 or Z4m seats, but I sit bolt upright with my entire back against the seat. I've driven cross country in 2.5 days in my z4, central Fl to Socal, lots of seat time in one go.

I was tempted by those Imola seats as a back up for my coupe....

I wouldn't recommend these for weight savings, or any OEM seat if weight savings is the priority. Only for OEM quality and looks as well as being more supportive and subjectively more comfortable than stock E46 M3 seats.

For whatever Z4 M-sport seats are lacking, they look so much better than the OEM seats.

My preference is black leather, which is what I have. But for someone that wants Imola/Red its really a no brainer.

Thanks...

I have these seats so it would make no sense to go to Z4M seats. If I am going to upgrade on seats Id like a weight reduction as well.. Still looking for the perfect DD / light weight seats that doesn't break the bank...

Yes thats correct, the seat rails with the motors but the extended wiring was not part of the weight since the seats can be unplugged from those wires so no point in going deeper to take out all the wires and determine the total weight.
