Heated Seat Upholstery

Hi Guys,

My quest has finally ended and i managed to find a set of sports seats in good condition. Only problem is they aren't heated. Does anyone know an upholstery shop that can install the heating pads which utilize the stock connector?

I know there are tons of kits out there but i don't have the time to do it myself. Also i need a pretty quick turn around as they would reaaaaaly have come in handy this morning =P

these are not easy install on the e30 seats. You have to take the seats completely apart.
because of this, you will be spending a good few bucks.

I've done a few but it was no "quick turnaround" lol

I think I've had 18 bmw's in 6 years.

the quickest turnaround solution would be aftermarket heating pad (something like this I've looked around the price of inserting heating elements into the seat but for the price it's better to sell the one you have and find a heated seats..
