    hello to all,my 535d has heated and ventilated FRONT seats only
    my kids are always saying how they wish they had heated seats too lol.
    anyhow there are some retro fit kits available on the bay quite cheaply
    i have already removed my rear seats completely in the past,and removing the leather cover off the foam to insert the heat elements should also be pretty straight forward too
    my question is the 12v connection to the cars electrics.
    does anybody know for certain how this is done or have experience of it
    they are protected via inline fuse,so i was HOPING the 12v feed is just "scotchlocked onto a 12v supply ie the supply to the rear cigarette lighters (my car came with rear smoker pack) i don't smoke
    thanks in advance for any answers

    yes, you can plug em straight to the cigarette lighter sockets those are fused/protected. dont scotchlock the wires, rather use proper connections or solder the wires for reliable connection.

    actually, nice guide here:
