Heated Steering Wheel retrofit

Hello,
anyone knows if it is possible to retrofit the heated steering wheel?

In a F21 it was possible to code it to the car and retrofit the button to acitvate it, when you have the M-Steering Wheel with Diving Assistant (vibration on steering wheel).

Perhaps its the same on the G20.
And when possible to activate heated steering wheel with "Hey BMW", so you dont need to retrofit the button on the steering wheel to activate it.

Retrofit should be possible once coding on the G20 becomes popular and people have fiddled around with it.

Also, “Hey BMW” does not work to heat the steering wheel. I’ve tried. It says that module cannot be controlled or something like that. Just like how the rear seat heaters cannot be turned on via “Hey BMW”.

It would be nice if you could do that. Unfortunately in a stock car, there’s no auto steering heat turning on below a set temperature. Only for the drivers seat.

Oh wow. I did not notice that. I unfortunately have no idea how to use esys. If only I could find someone who could remotely do it for me. That would’ve been nice.
