Default Vader seat fitment?

First post, here goes!
I have an M3 sedan and I reaallly want to get my butt in some Vader seats ASAP. I was wondering if the front vader seats from a coupe could fit into the front of my sedan? Also I have powered, not heated, seats, so would I need to buy powered vader seats as well? Or could manual Vaders fit and work fine in my car with or without modification?
I know this topic has been here and there on all the forums but i couldn't find an answer to this question so sorry Thanks guys!

Manual vaders will fit with no modifications into your sedan.

So are there actual Sedan vaders? or did they only make coupes with them?

I took manual vaders from a 1996 M3 coupe, to fit in my 1998 M3 sedan. There's a square you'll need to cut out on the vader plastic trim to allow the seat belt to go through (if it's not cut out). Other than that it's just bolt it in, T50 to attach the seat belt to seat.

Don't do it! The sedan/lux seats are vastly superior to the vaders!

That's indeed the general rule. So far I've seen 2 VIN's of Individual sedans that were spec'd to have Vaders.

Seems you can't quote Mod's replies. Uh? No button. Well this workaround then.

Indeed, screw Vaders. The most overhyped part of any car, brand, out there.

I've never seen it or heard of it. Doesn't mean it isn't true, but does that mean that the vaders were fixed back?
