So does my e46, I asking about retrofiting the heating coils in my stock seats to my new ones but I don't want to do it. Too much work

I think it will be worth it - no?

How much work is it?

Yeah I read that a while ago, the only step I was concerned about was Step 4. He took his seats to an upholstery shop to get them put the heating elements in. I don't have the time for that, and its way to much effort for a function I never use.

Im just going to install the seats w/out heating and replace them with some M3 seats when I find them with color/options I want.

Well you can always tear apart the seat yourself... I'm not too sure if BMW seats are equipped with a zipper to unzip the seats off the actual frame but otherwise... yeah goodluck its one hell of a retrofit.

I plan on doing it one day and also for my rear passengers but really by the time I invest all that money I may as well invested into a new BMW E90.

Yeah this is my Daily Driver so I cant really leave the car seatless. Plus I plan on selling my stock seats, and that money will go to some M3 seats.....which are so nice.
