i'm only saying this, because the same happened for the MINIs with their John Cooper Works seats, which were available in Europe but not in the US because of the lack of airbag. If you do switch to those seats or any other seats, the airbag light goes on because of the lack of the airbag/sensor in the seats.
There are ways around those pesky lights...:thumbup:

The best part is the cost: $183 at good online retailers such as Tischer BMW... :thumbup:

130i Hatch

Hey guys,

Do you think any of these parts will be made available to the 1 series hatch?
Obviously those that don't fit the hatch body won't be available but I really like the carbon fibre mirror caps, seats, interior trim and the steering wheel of course...

130iM, Howzit Boet, another South African - we are beginning to crawl out of the woodwork here. :thumbup:

There is a member here from the UK that has added similar performance parts from Hartge to his 130i M.

See here for pics and details: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1383

The brochure lists the model availability for each part. It uses the internal BMW code designation E8x. I don't know the 1er codes, but you should be able to find it in the brochure.

Here are some of the items shown on a 5-door hatch: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...5619#post55619

thanks for the top notch translation pousa13! Are the sports seats really ~3kg total weight - or ~3kg saving with respect to normal seats?

Can't wait to see some prices now!
