    F80 m3 seats into E92 M3

    Hey guys. Had alot of people message me regarding this conversion so i thought id write up abit more about it. This will depend on your car and the options your car has fitted so i can't answer for all. **Any white E-Chassis seat module will work** The white seat modules have the same connectors as the F8X and are plug and play. The only thing you have to make sure if you have heated seats you get the module ending "861" so "860" means not heated. left and right modules MATTER. this is because of the canbus signals address left and right. If you use for example 2x right modules when you switch the right heater on both seats will operate. (I did have to code the seat occupancy sensor out as the F8x one is not compatible) After that its easy all you need to do is swap the connector from the e9x chassis. Using the E9X seat buckle fit it to the F8X seat. Swap the airbag connector from f8x to e9x. The polarity may have to be swapped IIRC as the f8x airbag would cause a fault otherwise. Im not going into pin for pin wiring as its very simple but the f8x wire colours are as follows: Red= power for lumbar/bolster. (I looped this from the power positive as i didint have this option before). Purple= seat light. (I run this off the gearknob lighting) Twisted pair= canbus (this will fit in the black power connector of the e92 plug) Red/brown= positive (also same as e92) Brown=ground (same as e92)  Attached is a pic of the e9x power connector with canbus and airbag connector. Good Luck

    PFL E46 Xeon swap

    @eliongater Coupe to coupe will just bolt up and plug in First. Most headlight internals can be swap pfl coupe into fl sedan for example. So you can buy almost and pair and make them work for you (except fl coupe) Second. You do not need to change lcm in fact it will cause more problems. Tamper light on the dash as kms are stored on that. Third. You dont always need to code but if the lights flicker or the lamp failure lights come up it will need coding. Some im happy to help with for free.

    F80 m3 seats into E92 M3

    Im honestly not sure. I have the x1 seats i want to get rid of if you want to use them to test your theory. Ill be pulling all the belt tensioners and electrics off but rest is still intact

    F80 m3 seats into E92 M3

    The base frames have different part numbers so theres a good chance id need the bases. However ill pull mine apart and see what i can do with mine. Worse case i could ask my mate if i can pull his apart to see the difference

    F80 m3 seats into E92 M3

    Will see how it go. Can only try so ill just buy one side if it works ill buy the other. I couldnt find anything about conversions even for other models. Didnt actually weigh them lol. If i had to guess id say the f80 seat is lighter

    F80 m3 seats into E92 M3

    Hey so i thought I'd share my latest retrofit project. Couple of my mates have f8X m cars after seeing the seats i wondered if they fit the e92. I couldn't find any info or even pictures on google. After acquiring some from a damaged f80 i got to work trying to fit them. At first i was pleased to find they bolted directly in. I swapped the connectors from f80-e92. With only 5 wires(power,canbus,lighting). It was easy to swap. The car did not like the f80 seat module at all and quickly rejected it. Because of the can protocol between the chassis. Because the wake up signal was no longer being conveyed after 10sec the seat shut down. Luckily the passenger seat was simply a high current switch. All worked as it should except the heated seats. Using the e92 seat module i use it to simply work the heated seats instead of all other seat functions it used too. After looks playing around it was looking as though it would not be possible aside from a can emulator that would relay the wake up signal. However this isn't easy. I was running out of ideas. I brought a very cheap pair of seats from a x1 at first for parts but then noticed it used the same style of connectors as the f80 but the car was only a 2010. Part of a total fluke i tested the module out and to my surprise it worked. It was enough to makes the seat stay awake however no heated seats because the x1 seats weren't heated. After that i was stoked and immediately sourced the heated version of the same module which worked perfectly. Only last remaining problem is because they were from a 4 door the seats do not release forward which is a problem in a 2 door so ill order the parts and try convert them😂
