I've been thinking about popping an element into the backrest. On mine, like Dave W's, one can put one's hand behind the upright seat cushion. Any ideas ?

I recently thought about the same. In my opinion it will be difficult to get the warmth reasonable fast through the quite thick upholstery (I think thats the reason why this option is not offered by MMC).
My solution: a heated vest from Keis

I am a big fan of Keis.

I have two heated jackets - his and hers plus heated gloves.

This all started with the M3W BTW.

The 80th does have heated seats - but the addition of the Keis on cold mornings/days still makes a big difference.

Its easy to wire back to your Battery with the fused wiring Keis provide.

Then its a simple lug in and go - or use the 12v socket.

Okay that just about does it as I already have a Keis gillet and it is lovely. I'll just buy an extra one.

My +4 has heated seats fitted by the factory, the heat seems to radiate up the back rest. Gets a bit too hot if it's on full.

Just checked the heated vests. Neat! But My (Made In China) leather jacket seems to keep Me warm. But rarely in less than 50F temps. If I lived in Boston it would be a different story. I would not be driving for sure.
