  1. I have an ex police car which has really worn cloth front seats and had electric lumbar adjustment. I have found replacement front seats which looks like its out of a msport, its leather but only part electric in terms of just adjusting the tilt and the height same as my cloth seats (apart from my lumbar support which it dont have). the front part of the seat on sport seat is manual (the bit the comes out under the thighs) Will it be ok in terms of changing the seats over and not require coding. apart from the lumbar support the functions seem to be the same. Although these new seats maybe heated which my cloth ones are not.

    im not sure if you can put the lumber support in. My car already has the heated seats button in the dash but of course they dont work. Im not sure if bmw just put the same wiring harness in. im not sure if its plug and play or if it will need coding. anyone had any experience of puting leather into cloth ex police cars
  5. Hi i just wanted to replace my factory standard speakers in my F11. Which size of speakers will go in the door and in the headline in the rear. I did a google search it and it come up with Pioneer TS-G1031i 190w dual core for 20 pounds each from halfords. Is it worth doing the cheap upgrade ? i dont have a great amount of funds available to spend on speakers. How many watts are the standard factory ones

    F11 Retrofit parking sensors

    258 bhp thats about it really. I have been told that they have been reinforced in certain areas. But it is extremely basic. No sat nav, bluetooth or parking sensors or leather seats. Im looking to get a replacement set of interior leather seats from breakers.
