I have a 2000 528i. Just recently as the driver's seat heater starts
getting warm it has started to smell like somthing is smoldering. Has
anyone experienced this before? Any suggestions before I take it in
I'd suggest you don't use your seat heater. If it over-temps there is
the possibility of having a fire under your butt. Volvo had to recall a
bunch of cars because of this, and bet they same company makes the
heating elements for BMW.
Could it possibly be an article of clothing? FWIW, my wife ruined a
(vinyl?) coat using the seat heater on her Saab. Although the heater was
functioning normally, the coat material just wasn't up to it.

I had read Randy that someone had taken An Acura driver's seat (TL or TSX, I
found the seat cushion had burn holes from said heater.
It would be prudent to check out this smell to the end (pardon the pun):)
