Heated steering retrofit - full details

I just replaced the steering wheel on my F10 with a heated version. I had this as a factory option on my old car but just bought another one (used) and it didn't have heated steering wheel. Dealers in Germany said it couldn't be done, but with the right parts it was possible and took me about an hour.
The attached guide tells all. Beware it is not cheap, about 1000euro, but if you are used to a heated steering wheel then it's worth it (especially living in a nordic country).

very good guide buddy
I've done this some times ago but I'm stuck where you need connect SZL to JBE basically need just put missing 12V and Ground as you mentioned in guide
In old E series that's not a problem but in F series they change JBE and its not easy tried but I made short circuit so decided to leave for car electrician to do later
