I started to hijack another thread, so thought I should just start one. I am seeking info with how your seat heater works in your X. Just trying to find out what is normal and abnormal. My seat heater in driver and passenger, when I put it on 3, the seat back starts to get hot first. As it gets to the nice warm feeling, the seat then starts to warm up. As the seat gets warm, the back portion shuts off and the seat portion continues to get hot and even really hot. I eventually have to turn it down. The back in the meantime does not get warm again. Maybe on a longer trip, it cycles and starts to warm up a little, but never to the nice warm stage, but quickly goes away again. I have a service appointment tomorrow (180 miles drive one way) but just want to see what everyone else is experiencing. My S does not do this - it gets nice and warm on the seat and back and stays that way. I don't have to even turn the setting down from 3.
Thanks for any input on what you are seeing.
