    Can anybody help me?
    I have Sports leather seats with side bolsters.
    I would like to have the back and seat area heated, been to Bmw dealer, and Bmw do not do a retrofit kit for this job, but say it is possible to do by a seat specialist.

    Does anybody know if this job can be done and any specialist who does this in the cheshire area or close by?

    I would want the correct Bmw switches fitting too.
    Cheers

    So BMW don't want to do this because it will be a re-trim of the seats. Anyway, here are the parts you need...LINK. Then you will need the seat control module (2 types, one for manual seats, other for electric seats) and button control panel. PM me your email address and I will send you the install instructions

    Retro fit of heated seats, update.

    Had both front leather seats fitted with carbon fibre heating.
    Trim Technik, removed the leather from the seat frames, and fitted the carbon fibre heating, everything wired up and 2 switches put in the dash below my climate control unit.
    Brilliant job, would never know the leather had been removed and refitted.
    Just waiting for the cold weather now!

    Nov.2008. E90 320D MSport Auto.

    The carbon fibre elements have certainly done the job.

    No more cold leather seats for me, they are lovely and warm in this cold weather!! ............
