On our '02 325, which has Flexsteel front seats, I also put the seatback of the driver's set forward of upright at fold the arms down. With the steering column as for forward as it can go, there's just enough clearance to get the seat past the steering wheel. For some reason, it doesn't want to go beyond facing sideways, so it doesn't reall face intoi the living room. That's a study project before the start of next season.
The passenger seat isn't a problem. It will go all the way round to face aft, but DW doesn't use it like that, because she's uncomfortable in the seat anyway. At 4' 10", her feet don't touch the floor and the distance from the seat back to the leading edge of the cushion is about 6" too long.
I suspect that there's going to be a consultation with an upholstery shop next spring!
