I have a 1994 525 automatic with 66,000 miles. The heating to the rear passenger compartment doesn't get warm.

I have 2 1998 528i's in my family and the rear vents don't seem to work really well.

You could direct warm air to the floor instead of the dash vents,
and If I'm not mistaken, floor vents do feed warm air to the rear from under the front seats.
