M Performance Seats Installed - now Airbag light...

My M3 is a 2012 US-spec, and the seats are being installed here in Germany at a BMW dealership. To complete the installation and get rid of the airbag light, I require a passenger seat occupancy sensor bypass. Anyone know who sells them? Specifically, the dealership said I had to find one suitable for an E92 LCI 3 series/M3...

Thanks in advance! -- and Merry Christmas!

CCapt - so you think it is codable? My coding guy is not aware of how to achieve this. Can you PM me some info? Thanks

My boys at Landstuhl Euler BMW are doing the work. Seats look spectacular in my otherwise Silver/Black Novillo leather interior, particularly with the full CF interior trim.

Next things to go are the silver leather centre armrests - Schwarz Novillo here I come!

I'll PM you the price...

Looks great. I would highly recommend proper remote race seat coding vs aftermarket modules/fiddling with wiring. We've done a ton of these remotely with 100% success rate

Thanks everybody!

I am hooking up with our M-Flight coding guru tomorrow so hopefully we will have a positive response...MTF.

OEM seats are <65 lbs.
New seats with mounts are ~35 lbs I think.

Savings +/- 30 lbs per seat. Give or take.

You might be comparing the Sportster CS (sans airbags).

BMW Performance Seats still have airbags, only about a 15lb difference from OEM.

Hope you're enjoying the error free race seat coding!

Now give euro MDM a try and see how you like it (after the snow clears )

Stay warm over there.

Thanks Brian, it was a pleasure chatting with you earlier and programming your car to spec.

Mike
