Wanted E28 Rear Headrests

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm looking for what seems to be a unicorn! Anyone know where i can source some rear headrests (early type) in pine green? Maybe even E23 type will fit too?

 

All the best,

Moved but such a niche request the e28 section wasn't the worst place to put it ;)

 

Do people actually browse by section?

Hi Lloydy,

 

I sourced two sets of E23 headrests (fronts and rears) that I had recovered and fitted one set to my Zobelbraun Eta with pearl beige leather interior:

and the other set to the Diamantschwartz Eta with burnt orange leather interior:

For the front headrests I had to change over the chrome head rest supports from E23 to E28 as the E23 ones are far too long and prevented the headrest from retracting fully down onto the front seat back.  IIRC the rear head rests were a straight one for one exchange with the E28 headrests.

 

I prefer the "Cat Ear" look of the E23 head rests.

 

Have you tried placing a wanted add in the parts section of "myE28.com" or contact Ivo Christov in the Netherlands for some pine green material.

 

I had my re-upholstering conducted by d:class automotive in Chobham in Surrey.  Try giving them a call as they may well be able to source a similar compatible material with which to re-cover your head rests.  Dave Price's team are artisans who produce top quality work.  Thanks Dave and the team.

 

I sourced my E23 headrests from Tims on this forum.  Thanks Tim.

 

Hope this helps you as you can put E23 headrests into an E28.

 

Best of luck with your quest for pine green cloth fabric.

 

Regards,

 

Mick

Thanks for the advice, they do look stunning in your car. It's just the rears i need but good to know e23 are a straight swap. 

 

Tim, please let me know once you get the e23's that you have something suitable.

Hi Tim, are they the early cat ear typed and can you supply all fittings?

 

Believe it or not I've sourced correct material so it'll just need some adjustment on the headrest material from a trimmer given different mounting points for the poles.
