Msport seats into an Se

Hi there does anybody know if pre-lci heated Msport seats would go into my lci se with heated seats? Hope that makes sense.


Thanks.

Yes they will but you have issues with active headrests. Can be coded out I believe.

Thanks. Maybe I'll look out for some lci ones just don't see them come up much for an E91.

This won’t work for an Lci you will have problems with the passenger seat occupancy mat readings which were different between pre and post lci.

FWIW, you can get over the active headrest problem by swapping the internals from your existing seats. A guy on YouTube has done it and it doesn't seem to tricky.

I believe he may have sorted the occupancy problem as well.

ETA: Here's his video on headrests

Hi, thanks for the link but I picked up some LCI ones yesterday and fitted them. One of the seat belt pretensioners was knackered and threw up codes so I changed that so now I'm waiting to get the codes cleared. Hopefully the pretensioner is the only problem.

Hi, sorry to pick up this post now. I am putting some seats from a 2010 car into a 2007. The seats have the same features and I am hoping the occupancy mat wont cause issues. Did you get yours resolved? I have checked RealOEM and there seems to be a cross over of codes for the Mats

Ended up getting some lci msport seats instead into my lci. So not much help I'm afraid. Think you'll have problems with the active headrests may need to get them coded out.
