Is there a way to convert non-heated leather seats to heated? Thanx in advance.

There are a number of companies that sell heated seat pads for a decent price.

Just need the knowhow and courage for the job.

Do a search on ebay for heated seats/parts.

Pre-owned manager at my local dealer told me about a local shop that would do the conversion...ask around, you'll find somebody.

Hmm, that's pretty interesting. Has anyone done this, and what it might have cost to get a pair installed?

I would pay good money to convert my heated seats into heated seats that actually WORK. Now that temps are in the single digits, I'm more frustrated then ever by the enemic performance of the heated seats option (and for those that have not seen my prior posts, yes I've had the dealer look at it - there was nothing they could do)

I'm with BMW of North America, LLC. I've passed this message on to a BMW NA Customer Relations Representative who will be in touch with you soon.

I installed the IPD seat heater kit in my '05 X5, on the rear seats. Took about 2 hours, and the kit worked as well as OEM. You have to remove the seat covers, which is actually pretty easy, using hog ring pliers.
