I don't think BMW added Webasto's to any of their cars, is it an option?

 

For those who are going Huh  :huh:  They are normally fitted to vans and larger trucks they use the vehicles fuel to pre-heat the coolant circuit and turn on the vehicles heater fan. You can normally hear them whirring away on BT box vans

If memory serves me right and I could be wrong, the webasto heater was an option in this country on all E60/E61`s. It`s not available at all in the US due to restrictions.

I doubt e60's have it, it's just not cold enough in this country

 

Your quite right, auxiliary heating as it was called option code S536A was available but I should think it`s rarer then hens teeth.

i bought a webasto remote heater, i programmed it, closed the car, pressed the webasto heater and got nowt! i was told if you can set the heating to go off at anytime in the climate control, the webasto will be compatible.!!!

CD-changer goes behind the glove box not in the boot.

Shouldnt matter atall. If you put power to pin 7??? off top of my head with a maplin rf remote switching kit, it should kick in automatically, this bypasses all the checks such as fuel level in tank, ambient temp etc.

can you find out exactly what i need please.

 

How longs a piece of string? I know nothing about your cars spec. You may CD-changer prep and you may have nothing at all. Do some research.
