e92 Manual to power seat conversion

Anyone have any experience with this? I am debating doing the swap. Is it plug and play?

Guys, did you ever determine if this is doable? And if so, what does it entail? Thank you.

This would be a waste IMO. I adjusted my power seats where I liked them and left it. They are significantly heavier as well.

Power seats are invaluable if more than one person drives the car (particularly if they are different sizes).

Is it just a bolt in install? I would assume the memory function works as well or does the car need to be coded?
