Heated/cooled/more comfortable/more supportive/lighter.

Sergei's likely getting a set for his M5 soon, so you could test sit them there.

Why those over Sportsters? Just curious. The style is a little bit too 90s for my taste, but I can see how they match up with the M3 interior a little bit more.

Seconded.

Not to mention, if this is indeed Mike @ SG's car, I wonder why he ditched the Sportsters he had...

Ventilated and heated, more comfortable.

I'm not saying everyone should get them... but I think they're more appropriate to how he drives his car (I know him outside the forum).

I do agree the Sporsters look more in keeping with the styling of the e46.

Side note: The Sports have harness holes at appropriate locations to actually use. The Sporster's are low enough to be unsafe to use, unless you're pretty short.
