NOTE: See my update in post #26 below.

Back in 2016 I got wait listed for an M2 which does have the removable headrests. When my turn to order finally came in March 2017, I didn't want to wait another 3 months and therefore just bought the readily available M3. It wasn't until I went to install a Schroth harness that I noticed the stupid seat design.

The seats from my 2017 330i wagon do work perfectly including the memory settings. However the console reports a "Driver Restraint" problem which is probably due to the different airbag computer in these seats.

I may test to see if my E92 seats also work (other than that same error code). My wife prefers the E92 seat comfort, as do I. Then look for suitable E92 or M2 seats on Ebay and re-code the main computer to recognize the seats.

Sure is a lot of trouble to "fix" BMW's stupid seat decision.
