How to mount Recaro Pole Position on BMW 335i E92 N54

I had a problem with the OEM seats of my 335i. They were electric and the sides got inflated with a button. The issue came with the balloons that are inside the seat because they were punctured so I could inflate them but after 3 curves they were already done. It was translated to be…
