M sport Seat retrofit question

Hi guys,

I tried to swap comfort seat to M sport seat(F97). But some problem occurred when I finished the swap.

The driver seat moves normally, but switch motion was reversed. And the seat module didnot recognized ISTA but recognized in esys. And passenger seat did not work through by switch function, but it recognized in esys and ISTA

So I checked to disassemble seat module and confirm it. The label wrote “engineering sample”. Is it reason of abnormally working seat motion? And if I buy the new one, is it will solve? I checked wiring and connection are normal.

Did you have to do anything to get the seat badges to illuminate or did they just work when you plugged everything in?

I have G01 M seats that came with the black plastic badges which I have swapped for the illuminated badges but I’m having difficulty in working out how to illuminate them as the wiring is not in my seats.

I didn’t know you could buy those m sport sport seats and replace them. Are they available in the US to order at bmwpartsonline?

Never mind, X4.

Is that a speaker grill under the passenger seat? I’ve never seen it before like that.

Yes it’s the speaker. One under each front seat.

Kyungmin1983: Can you explain where under the seat you connected the wire to illuminate the seat badges please

Looks like an X3 to me.

In the US the X3M gets those pieces color matched to the interior upholstery. Looks like foreign markets also get it in lower trims, as well.

If true, then there should be part number of center console for MAPQ for upholstery.

Also the rear headrests confirm this is an X4 but that rear window sure looks like an X3. It’s too big to be an X4 rear window.

It's an X3 - the rear windows are not an X4, nor is the OP posting sig.

Again, yep. Based on the OP's pics and profile info - looks like he drives an X3 M40i in Korea.
