The seat heaters are stuck on all the time. There is a bulletin from BMW on this and should be a recall issue meaning you shouldn't have to pay for the repairs.

Get it recalled asap!

I dont really get the allure of heated seats, it seems unnecessary. Well I live in a sunny area, so maybe thats why. But, wow, must be a hot seat!
