Default E60 Rear Fold Down Seat Retrofit - Possible?

Hi,

I've got a 2010 E60 without the fold down rear seat option. LKQ has a bunch of these cars popping up and I've been considering swapping out the rear backrest with a fold down version and pulling the related parts.

Has anyone done this? Do I need to stick with an LCI donor vehicle? Any issues pulling the parts out and converting?

Thanks for the help everyone, appreciated.

I did this between a 2007 530 and a 2008 535 without issue
