thats what I've been told. I'll just have to wait till spring and find out. The funny thing is that when I removed the old non-powered/non-heated seats out there were wires attached to the bottom. Just wondering what it could be since those seats don't need any power. Maybe prewired for heated seats

I wondered the same thing. On my e30 there is one wire underneath the seat, and it's for the seatbelt warning light thingy. Maybe the same on the e36?
