    i have an avant with climate control and electric seats, can i retro fit memory to seats and swap out climate control for one with auto recycle. seats are heated.
    does anyone have the parts i will need if it can be done.
    Theres probably be a few more things you can help with but for now theres a warm up.
    i see a couple of old faces/names from the b5 days, hows it going chaps.

    Not sure on this one...

    For memory seats it will probably depend if you have the wiring in the loom which you have already, then will need coding in VCDS, plus the seats of course. I thought you used the 'econ' button to select between recycled air and air from outside the cabin?

    I believe the 'ECON' button disables air conditioning (not fully). The button with the curved arrow is recirculation.

    Iknow where the recycle button is but in the x5 and the range we have auto recycle as well as recycle and it works really good in fact it makes it seem like the s4 is polluting me.
    ive never smelt a bad smell or exhaust fumes in them cars but the minute i go 20ft behind an old car in a4 it stinks of fumes.
    thats why i want auto recycle, i see it is an option just wondered if it was easy as buying the new one and sawpping.
    Thanks

    im asking this because my wifes x5 and my range has the memory on the seats,
    ive noticed on my s4 that the memory goes in the door shut so i was thinking that it might be as easy as buying the module that go in the door pocket and bobs your uncle.

    NHN would be a good guy to ask as he does retrofits or most OEM kit so would probably be able to help answer your questions. Give him 48hrs and if he's not posted send him a PM

    *it works really well

    *in those cars

    It's good grammar. It can count for a lot when asking people for help/advice on forums...

    I've always been intrigued by how this 'auto recirculate' feature works. :uhm:

    You're going to need the J136 Memory seat controller...I think it goes under the drivers seat....and the door memory controls will connect to the Driver door control unit.

    Alot of wiring ...but very do able.

    Cheers,
    Do you know if it’s possible to buy the loom extensions forthe controls or is it just a lot of wiring?
    Do you know if it’s been attempted?
    Is there a way of getting a parts catalogue online like RealOEM.com Online BMW Parts Catalog
    Thanks mate.

    Get the wiring diagram fro your car and re create it...I dont know if you can buy it...you could try the dealers or TPS.

    Your parts catalogue would have to be a copy of ETKA 7.3 which is what the dealers use.Available on ebay, but it has its limitations ie price updates, and vin enquiries.Still good though
