Calling All Seat Experts!

{EDIT} Changing OP to help others find this info in one place down the road.

Came across a couple of on-topic threads...

...but couldn't really find a definitive answer so here's my questions. Picking up a set of 2006 non-sport, non-M, power and heated seats to install in my early production 2003 Z4 roadster with power/heated seats (going from red to black).

1. I understand that this is a direct bolt-on swap, but a little confused on the whole seat sensor thing - will this just be a plug and play or not?

2. Also, what about belt tensioners? (donor vehicle was in an accident) How does one tell if they're good or not?
