I was commenting to a friend how my wife loves the seat heaters. that she wouldnt even leave the car when we get home. he warned me that there have been incidents where the seat heater has burned people's pants!

now, i get into work this morning, and a coworker told me that last night, while he was driving home, he smelled something burning. he was afraid his VW was melting and drove straight to dealership and left it there. when he got home, he noticed his pants were burned through.

thats pretty messed up. i wonder if this is VW specific?

poor guy had to call the dealer and told them the burned smell was from his pants, not engine. ouich

This has been a problem with the new E60 seat heaters. Here's a photo of a 2004 525i seat.
