Hi Wibbles

Thanks for you reply. Have you any idea of approx cost as wondering if it is worth doing ? I have sourced seats at reasonable cost but not going to proceed as cost may outweigh advantages. Also not sure if it will invalidate warranty as car not yet 2 years old ?
Hi Les,

Anything you do to modify the car from standard will affect the warranty. that said, if you have an issue with the final drive unit it would be hard for the dealer to lay blame on the heated seats retrofit.

You have to weigh up the pro's & con's - are you keeping the car long term, is it on PCP/Finance - that can be a factor - if BMW FS get wind of modifications they potentially say you are breaking the contract you signed and ask for full payment of the balance on finance.

If you are ok with both of the above issues then crack on and get the seats retrofitted. Be careful who you use to retrofit them, there are many cowboys out there.

Thanks Craig for your reply. I have decided to abandon the idea of installing electric seats as it does not seem worth the hassle. It seems to be a major job getting the wiring sorted & don’t want to put warranty in jeopardy
