E60 LCI comfort seat on a pre-LCI E70?


I got hold of a pretty good shape set of comfort seats from an E60 LCI and am figuring out how to put them onto my pre-LCI E70 (with electric seat and lumbar support).

Key challenge is the seat rails for which I imagine that I can just swap the whole rails between the two, is it correct?

Wiring wise it only involves adding a K-BUS line to FRM and a few other wires for the active headrest which I can deal which since I did the same retrofit for my E60.

Any one here attempted similar retrofit and is the rail swap ok in your opinion?

I did, and I gave up. As you realize, the rails are different. I thought I could swap them but there were so many wire connections etc. I got lazy and found some E70 seats and sold the E60 comfort seats. Much easier for me and less hassle.

Run flat tires? Nein Danke!!!
