The price is very reasonable and he can re-use the BMW heating elements. Thanks again for your post.
I had a Sargent and although it was way better than stock it was not good for a 800 mile day. I went with a Russell Day-long and my butt was happy for the last 60,000 miles! From what I have read the Mayer seats are very similar, go for it.
