My experience with BMW heated seats (my e32/e34/e38/e39/e53) has been that they heat-up rather quickly. Heat should be felt within a minute or two...depending also on what you're wearing. If I wearing a short jacket that doesn't cover my bum/butt...then the heat is felt rather quickly through my pants. If I'm wearing a longer coat/jacket that is creating extra layers of "padding"...then it obviously takes longer to feel the warmth from the heated seat pads.
