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.
My MY06 E90 330i's seats were hot before I got to the bottom of my 50' driveway. Not so in the F30. It takes far too long for them to heat up.

That's the bad news.

The good news is the heated steering wheel (unavailable in my E90) heats up in 30 seconds.
