The new 2013 335 xdrive has heated seats too. These take about 4-5 minutes to feel toasty warm.

What is everyone else's experience with the seat heaters in the F30. Is this the new standard or is it possible that there is an issue with mine?

I realize that life must be rough if I am inquiring about seat heaters but am just trying to determine if there is an issue or not. If it matters, the E90 had leatherette and the F30 has leather.

Admittedly I've only tried mine out on a couple of occasions but each of those times they did seem to take a good few minutes before they really got going. Once they did though, they were very hot and I seemed to be having to turn them down.

My wife's Ford has heated seats too and they're hot within a minute. I had wondered if mine had a problem too based upon this difference but it sounds like either we're both unlucky with our seats or this really is the norm.
