7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Seat Retrofits

Hi there,

I have a prefacelift e65 (2004 model). It doesn't have heated or comfort seats. I have seen a pair of front eats that come with the control buttons panel. It has also the movable comfort headrest.

Can I retrofit these or would I need other equipment?

I thought so, the seats are from the pre facelift too so is all good but would I need anything else apart from the new buttons and controller that the butttons connect too. And obviously the seats?

All you need is:
-the seats of course!
-the seats modules
-the buttons panel

All is just plug and play.
You can update your VO for front heated seats but I think you're not forced to do that...

There is an airbag module located under each seat. You'll have to switch them with yours otherwise you'll have a "no VIN matching" fault.
If you want to keep the "new ones", you need to recode them with your VIN number...

Hope this helps!
