Retrofit Heated Seats F30. Anyone done this?

Any services in Hampshire or London?
A few years ago there was a guy on E90 post who did this for £200 for parts and labour.

Or can I do it myself?
Thanks

These guys are based in Lightwater and I was quoted 300 per seat. It is for the controls to be on the side of the seat though...

What annoys me about not having heated seats is that the original original owner didn't spec the bloody things in the first place!!!

I mean if you can afford to spec Pro Nav, Adaptive Xenon's and HK then why not pay a mere 250 for heated seats!

400 all in

LCI panel 75 ebay

Coding for panel. Will do myself.

Without the panel. Using their two stage retrofit system with aftermarket buttons it is 480

You may need the seat modules too if you're doing this: https://www.etkbmw.com/bmw/EN/search...M3/ECE/61_3598

Nah, Carwow for the cheapest option then added a few things at the dealer. Lesson learned for next time!

Yes, I asked Simon about it and didn't really get anywhere with him so looked up the wiring and parts etc myself, the price for the components alone was ridiculous so never bothered going further with it. Would have specced it from new but BMW don't allow it with cloth seats for some reason.
