Retrofitting Rear Climate Control

Wishful thinking here, but could it be as simple as installing the rear panel and some coding?

This is how it was done on an f10…likely possible and at least as complex.

Thanks for this. I did some googling and saw the F10 process. I guess I was a bit naïve to think it's all about the panel!

If you don't have any controls in the rear that means you don't have all the air canals in the rear also. So it's de-mounting nearly whole inside of the car and not worth the trouble

Thanks, yeah, I found out after I posted this question what was involved. I guess the B pillar would have a vent and there would be additional blower motors. Wishful thinking.
