Dealer finally got my new seats! Here's nice touch...
http://www.covideo.com/p.php?s=ec0b4df02b

So 8 weeks after delivery my corroded seat nightmare is about to end. I love my M Sport and hope this rust thing was an isolated incident. My nagging concern is were it not for me I'd be driving around with corroding seats and be none the wiser. Are any other nasty surprises lurking beneath her Estoril Blue sheet metal? Hope not! I learn a lot of this site, which is why I'm happy to contribute.

Glad it got resolved. Time to start bringing your car out to BMW CCA driving events and focus on what an amazing machine it is!

Good to hear your ordeal has come to an end.

The underside of both my front seats (July 2012 manufacture date) have a lot of rust spots. I know it's the seat bottom but the right thing to do is to get it replaced so BMW can pressure or bill their supplier for higher quality products; I didn't pay big bucks to have 2 rusted seats. I'll point it out when I take it in next week for its 1 year maintenance.

I took my car in and they replaced the rusted seat pans for both front seats. Dropped it off last Monday and got it back Thursday afternoon. They also tried to find the cause of my brake squeak; the "BMW Engineer" thinks its some brace which my SA ordered the part from Germany and takes around 3 weeks to arrive.
