    heated seats ruuuubish!!

    I've had my new S3 for about a week now, it's done 450 miles from new, and it's amazing!

    However, I just took the wifes TT out for a spin and her heated seats almost burnt the skin off my arse, in comparrison to my car.

    In fact, I'd challenge if they work much at all.

    Is this normal with the A3 / S3 ? Or can someone here confirm that they should get quite warm.

    mine on 6 are quite warm, but i wouldn't say they are 'bake your @$$' hot.

    I've always thought they were a bit weak, particularly next to the Q7 and A6 courtesy cars I've had

    I left it for a good 10 minutes and couldn't tell if it was my own body heat or if hey were trying to do something.

    Actually my wife and I both went out the other day for ages and on 6, nothing to write home about. Gutted really as they aint cheep! It's going in to the main stealer in 2 weeks. (soonest they could do with a replacement vehicle).

    Cheers for letting me know it's wrong.
