Default Other Models

What other BMW models can a 318ti do an interior switch. If there are other models like the 328i what parts can switch out without having to modify anything?

Thanks,
Mothman

If I'm remembering correctly I believe I've seen pictures of a ti with a full M3 dash swap. I think the interiors are interchangeable between all the E36 coupes and sedans, but I might be wrong.

Rear seats are unique to the Ti IIRC

I seriously thinking about some Vaders or some kind of seat upgrade. My grey cloth drivers seat "pops" and the bottom gives way during sharp cornering. I guess it's a bit worn out...can't find any loose parts/pcs.

My guess on the "popping" sound... since mine makes a faint pop/click when I go around corners quickly (which is most of the time, LOL):
The seats don't raise/lower/slide by magic, it's a mechanical device... with, believe it or not, moving parts. If you've ever examined moving parts after 8-10 years of use, you've probably noticed [gasp] wear and tear on those moving parts. Yes, it happens, I don't make the rules, I just observe them and report. :-D

CLIFF NOTES: Our seats are old, so it's reasonable to expect them to creak a little. Just like me. :-p

The doors are Ti-specific, so I would think the door skins would be too. . .and probably the skins that fit the walls beside the rear seat.

Rear seats, carpet, console, door panels, rear seat side panels, headliner, and anything aft of the rear seats are 'ti specific. You should be able to replace everything else with that 328i you mentioned. Depending on the HVAC, instrument cluster, and sound system, you may issues retrofitting those pieces. There's not a lot of room behind the 'ti dash.
