    Used Front Seats, Collection

    Black leather front seats (manual operation) in my 2002 530i Sport looking very tired (age related, not mileage at only 58,000). This is despite detailing with leather shampoo and balm. New replacement seats don't seem to be an option, and specialist seat renovators hard to find here in Dorset and surrounding counties. So, looking at used front seats. Inevitably, some don't look that much better than my existing ones, but there are one or two sets I've seen for sale that don't look too bad. I'm willing to collect within a couple of hours drive from Dorset coast (post Covid restrictions), but a bit unsure if two front seats would fit into the back of my E39 on the back seat for transportation. Any thoughts on the above, guys?

    e60 front sets retrofit

    Huy guys!!! I have retrofited from simple half electric leather seats to sport full electric seats with heating and got in a trouble. driver side now works well. Heating,memory,adjusting everything perfect but when all is conected passenger seat moves together just in different positions. Let say driver seat go to front passanger seat go back. I have conected pin 2 to the ground from right seat module power alsow is conected, can bus black wire is conected to new szm module pin 3 (same as left seat), kan low and high alsow conected to the new szm and both seats. Everything conected as WDS says but still not good. Oh and alsow passanger seat buttons not working, drives only with driver seat buttons. So my quesion is SZM module broken or passanger seat module ir broken? ir problem with coding? Actualy i still not coded the modules becose cant connect to the car due ncs exper caop error. But i think seats have to work without coding. Coding only for seat belt light turn off or i am wrong? Please help someone becose i becom crayzi, already spend more then 40 hours to fix this but still nothing.

    Memory seats and mirrors

    Our early LCI has memory seats and mirrors and they function as you'd expect using the buttons on the driver's seat. The car has two fobs but until recently I've been virtually the sole driver and just used the same fob all the time and set the seats/mirrors to Button 1. On the odd occasion my wife drives she has tended to just prod Button 2 for her seat/mirror settings. However, although the mirrors autoadjust with either fob the seats don't. This applies whichever fob we use. I think iDrive is correctly set (or presumably the mirrors bit wouldn't work?) so maybe there's a separate setting for the seats. Any ideas please folks?

  5. Hi All , Just wondering if anyone on here has some E38 Comfort Rear Headrests they'd be willing to part with. Ideally in black leather but willing to take other coloured headrests as i can dye them black if need be. Thanks Jay

    Interior: e34 or Original?

    My driver's seat has finally succumbed to the all-too-familiar driver's side bolster wear and needs to be replaced; unfortunately I've exhausted anywhere that has a decent replacement in the same colour / material (ebay (both UK & abroad), forums, breakers, Tim :-)), so I'm considering just replacing the whole lot with replacement seats from an E34. I would desperately love to keep it original, but I don't think this is going to be possible unless a decent one is broken / trashed anytime soon, so I think an E34 replacement is probably the best option. I know that fitting e34 seats is a fairly simple process that only requires some minor adaptions, but can the damage be repaired? the rest of the interior is unmarked and it would be a shame for it to go to waste!

    Wanted E38 Contours

    Hello everyone! I'm looking for a set of Contours to retrofit in my '97 528i. Any good ones with a good price will do, but heated seats, grey color, and black plugs are a plus! Thanks!
  8. Hi, New to the forum and looking for some advise please. I bought a 2007 520D LCi 12 months ago and love the car. The only thing I don't love is the cloth seats. When looking around I didn't put leather on the list of required spec. Wish I had! The cloth (grey) seems to show up everything. Even after cleaning stains just come back , I'm guessing thats due to the stain being on the cushioning. I'm after some advice on replacement leather seats. Can they be Pre LCI or have to be LCI?, Electric seats? where the current ones aren't can these be fitted and wired? Any things to look out for? Are all E60 seats (such as 530D) the same? Thanks in advance.
  9. So, was having a look on E-Bay today and spotted this interesting E28 that's currently up for sale.... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/bmw-e28-/161373348591?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item259299e2ef All looks good, but the owner has put an E92 interior in there and it seems to look like a good fit. I have never seen this before and didn't think it was even possible - However, I think it looks pretty good and am now tempted to swap mine out for something a bit newer. Has anyone else done this? I know there are plenty of E34 / 7-Series interior conversions on the forums, but never seen an E92 swap before.
  10. All suddenly stopped working - No response to buttons, Drivers seat adjust and steering column adjust dead. Mirror moves OK. Passenger seat OK. Fuses 13 and 21 OK About to take off seat "apron" and have a fiddle but if anyone has more precise ideas then much appreciated! Local indy garage (not BMW specific) says probably the connector that goes into the floor..? Apologies if it has been asked before... UPDATE - Seat apron/cover removed and connector had come out - plug in and all works. Bit of gluing to do on the cover to try and avoid it happening again...
  11. Hi guys, this is my first post on this site and saw a few things that interested me. for example: heated seats vented seats electric rear blind lumbar support (mine has standard electric seats) possibility of these if money permits: upgrade to a MKIV navi rear heated seats bluetooth/hands free (preferably OEM) Voice control system. bassically why i started this topic is that i have some of the know how, (like the lumbar support instalation) but im having trouble finding parts and im even happy of looking to britain, europe and america to source them (im an aussie ). any help that anyone can give on where to get these parts, without it costing an arm and a leg, would be priceless! cheers.
