I'm actually attempting to build my own brackets (laser cut, bent, and powder coated 1/8" steel, similar to the M4 GTS brackets), so that's going to take a little bit of time. I need to test fit it before I make the remaining ones.

The BMW seat heater pads have a therminster built into them that the aftermarket ones do not. Your unlikely to get aftermarket heater pads working with the OE controls.

What are you hoping to gain making your own mounts? If you got nogaros, the BK option is seat specific and car specific. Pretty unusual perk to the nogaro!

Your pictures arenít loading for me.
