Heated Seat Plugs

I am considering getting an aftermarket (Sargent) seat. But, this isn't really a discussion about which seat is best or whatever. The issue here (as it always seems to be with BMW) is plugs.

The Sargent seat comes with heaters, but the plugs are generic. This requires you to cut off your BMW plug and replace it with a "generic" one. I'd really rather not do that.

Is there a "magic part number", like with the GPS plug, that will allow me to get a couple of BMW seat heater plugs to replace the "generic" ones on the new seat?

That would allow me to switch between them.

BMW... Please make your plugs available to the aftermarket. It is really annoying!

Unfortunately, no. Unless I want to buy a whole new set of stock heated seats, cut off the electrical plugs and throw the rest away...

They just seem to sell the whole thing as one part. What I was referring to is that some industrious folks here had found other "special order" part numbers that were bits of wiring that had the right connectors on them.

Now that, I might (No BMW parts are "cheap") be able to afford.

Yes, we did eventually find a BMW wiring harness that has the same connectors as the seat heater plugs. Two of them, actually.

There's a reference to BMW part # 61 12 7 688 145, which lists for about $29. It has one male plug and one female socket on a short length of wire.

There's also a reference to BMW part # 82 11 0 433 414, which lists for about $12. I believe it only has one side of the plug, but I'm not sure which side (male or female). I think it's the seat side, meaning you could splice the extra Sargent plug to it, thus making a short adapter cable. That means you can plug either the Sargent or BMW seats straight in without having to cut any wires anywhere.

There's more info in this thread, and details of how to connect the plugs in this post.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

like the "X-Files" used to say..."The truth is out there..."

I apparently couldn't find the right search words... That, and anything related to "seat" brings up about half of the total posts!

I searched on Sargent and plug . . .

Then again, I knew the post was out there, so I had some idea of what I was looking for.
