I miss my heated seats!

I had heated seats in the last 4 cars that I had. The seats in the Z4 were wonderful even in Florida, they really helped on those cold mornings. When I got the 135i, I assumed that it had heated seats because it has just about every other option available. Much to my surprise, there were no heated seats. I should have gotten the cold weather package. The heater is great but there is nothing that compares to a nice warm back and butt.

I know how you feel, my old 128i had heated seats, and a sun roof. Now I have neither lol . I live in New England so for the past few weeks I've been freezing my ass off.

I now refuse to use heated seats in whatever car I'm in, just so I don't get a taste of what I'm missing

I have never had heated seats in any car I have ever owned. They never even came to mind when I bought my 135i.

My girlfriend recently got a 328i with heated seats and after driving her car around a lot, I have several times found myself reaching for the heated seats button in my 135i to only find it isnt there.

Heated seats are wonderful addition but the heated steering wheel is a must.

I swear I saw a thread about that on here someplace, and the dealer told the guy he'd be better off buying a new car. I hope that's an exaggeration, I'd love to add em in.

If you can even do it, the cost would be crazy stupid

Use my heated seats everyday, including every morning in the summer on the way to work as the suns coming up.

I had heated seats in the last three vehicles I owned, and I hardly ever used them , but my wife would turn it on every time she rode with me. It could be 65 degrees outside and she would turn them on to the highest setting. When we looked for her 335i, it was one of the things on the must-have-or-she-didn't-want-the-car list. When I ordered my 135, I ordered the heated seats because I got to like them and was afraid I'd miss them.

My GF told her mother I was a keeper just because of the bun warmers. In reality, its nice because she gets warmed up from the seats and the rest of the car isn't so warm that it cooks me.

Living in Colorado heated seats are a necessity and wife would not let me buy any vehicle without this option
