How to fit The Cobra Lemans into your BMW E21

How to fit The Cobra Lemans into your BMW E21

A very common question we receive at GSM Performance is “How do I fit the Cobra Lemans seat into my BMW E21”. Because of the high demand, we have created this blog post to guide you through installing the Lemans seat and state what fitting equipment you will need specifically for the BMW E21. 

Recommended Fitting equipment...

For a safe and secure instalment, we recommend the Corbeau and Planted Technology frames, they have both been manufactured to specifically fit into the BMW E21. This will give you a perfect fit to the base of the car as they have the same bolt pattern as the original floor plan of the E21. We like the fact that these frames have many bolting points especially the Planted frame, this allows for a large range of seats to be fitted to them.

The Cobra Le Mans reclining seat is a classic in sports seat design as the name suggests. A decade of refinements show in the latest Le Mans, with subtle changes improving comfort and posture, orthopedic style backrest, and a wider choice of fabrics, this hugely popular seat satisfies the most demanding driver whilst allowing everyday practicality.

 The Le Mans Seat provides an ideal solution to everyday driving as the seat reclines for optimum comfort whilst also featuring increased side and bolster depth for a performance edge when you need it. This ensures the seat keeps you in position reducing lateral movement ensuring you can concentrate on the road or track ahead.  We hope that this seat fulfills all your expectations.
