    I'm hoping it's something simple like that. Seats aren't cheap.
    Hey BP did you ever figure this out? My recently swapped seats are also bottoming out long before I can fit a helmet.

    Edit: nvm I found your thread where you learned about the front switch. Mine is slammed on all accounts and I have no chance of fitting in there with a helmet. Crudzilla.

    Unfortunately, there is no acceptable solution for me.
    I had my event this past weekend and my helmet sure enough was hitting the roof.

    I'm looking into swapping over a manual seat base. Everything I'm seeing says that'll let you get about .75"+ lower than the power base, and save a good bit of weight at that.

    Next option is sunroof delete...

    This is exactly why I have manual M3 seats in my blue car

    Hey I just read through a thread where a guy with a Z3 pulled the seats to check the linkage for lowering options and found some change lodged in one of the sliders that, once removed, gave him another .75" of travel. Something to check for both of us since we are sitting higher in our new powered seats compared to the original powered seats.

    I'm really hoping I can make the manual base work. The lowering and weight savings aside, I just like the manual adjustments better.

    What slider is this? The one on the bottom?
    If so, there is no change in there. Or is this a slider you can only see when you start to disassemble the seat? Not sure what location you're referring to, but I'm anxious to find out!

    Hah I'm not sure what I'm referring to either as the Z3 didn't look to be the same motor system as the e46, but it's just something to check, especially since the supposed same seat doesn't go down as far as the original. I'm travelling for the next few weeks but will tear into my extra set of seats when I get back and see about making modifications or swapping to a manual base.

    My client bought a salvage title 330 ZHP and after using it to learn stick and after acquiring a 330 of my own, I am suspicious that is indeed a ZHP motor. My 330 seems faster on the day to day, and I'm pretty sure the auto should be robbing lots of power. I crawled under and to the side of the driver engine mount, I found this tag. Can anyone verify the motor from this? This is where it should be according to BMW.

    Reads: "30386256" then next line "30 6S 3"

    Edit: removed very large image once verified to be a 3.0 motor

    I verified that the motor is indeed a 3.0 motor, suggesting it is the ZHP motor. Where should I be looking as to why this motor is so sluggish? Aside from VANOS, which we've put on the list.
