760Li rear seats in a 745Li...?

First post!! yay!!lol. Sup feller beammer$.. I just purchased a 745Li and i want the rear options on the 760Li< heated cooled massage rear seats.. I called Bmw and the the service guy said now because of the wiring.. Now thats not an issue to me as i am a customizer wiring is a simple cut n twist.. What I really need to know is can the seat fit. are they a perfect fit? .. From what i know they are based on the same chassie.. Has any one else attempted to do this with success.. If so lemme kno wut im in for, cant really afford a 760 til maybe 2009-2010.. til then i need those options.. Thanks Guys..

Well, it's the same chassis, so sounds like if you have custom wiring experience you should be fine. Might be a good idea to look over the diagrams for the two cars on realoem.com to make sure you don't have to run piping from the A/C system or anything.

Make sure they ar both very close in production date so that the airbag system is the same. The seats have occupancy recognition mats in them for the airbag and if they not the same generation then you will have airbag lamp on etc. Also you will need to have the airbag lamp reset after doing the swap, even if they are the correct seats.
