    Bucket Seats....

    I've finally got my hands on some bucket seats from a 3door S3 for my 2008/58 Sportback but the wiring for the airbags and heated seats are different. Does anyone know the part number i need to convert this??

    LMAO!

    The buckets don't have an airbag mate so you don't need to worry about that part.

    Were your old seats heated?

    Staz, apparently they do have airbags on the side according to audi...the side plastic bits pop off to release the airbags. My original seats were heated, finding the correct wiring kit is seeming to be a right pain!

    Buckets are the shizzle lads havent stop smiling since i've had them

    They are obviously not proper s3 bucket seats.
    If they were they would fit straight in no problem.
    3 plugs under the plastic flap in the floor.
    They are a straight swap one for one.
    Should of got your hand in your pocket & bought some proper ones.

    According to Audi how? I'm 99% sure they don't have airbags mate. Mine have no 'airbag' badge and I seem to remember when I ordered the car there was a different figure for the total airbags in a car with and without buckets.

    I may be wrong though

    EDIT: S3 seats on the Recaro website:

    http://www.recaro.com/index.php?id=3287&region=1&L=2

    Doesn't mention an airbag

    Cool! That makes life easier then

    How many wires go to the seats for heating? Shouldn't be too complex to wire them in!

    Never heard so much rubbish in my life. "from a mate who bought car back from insurance" What a load of clap trap. Insurance companys have a policy not to allow insured`s to retain salvage.
    Your seats are obviously stolen if you paid 1100 for them.
    Sounds like you dont need the heated loom for your seats.
    They are so hot they will keep your backside very very warm rain, hail, snow or shine.

    Mobile diagnostics, will tell exactly how long for.
    Possible prosecution.
    I`d be careful.
    Buy a proper set.
    There has got to be lots & lots on the market.

    I dont see why you got to be soo moody and point the blame to zeshan. Also accusing him of buying stolen property.
    I dont think he has any reason to lie about where he bought the seats from. Insurance company policy is to allow the salvage garage to buy it before they offer the back to the old owner. And then you can buy the car back off the salvage garage.

    I'm fairly sure in the history of modern automobiles someone somewhere will have solved this problem

    It's an MOT failure at worst.

    Nope. And the seats aren't that common either, hence Nathan hasn't been able to buy any.

    Oh god bless, you sound like a really nice church going Christian.
    Unfortunately on this occasion, you know absolutely nothing about the subject of Salvage.
    Salvage companies pay handsomely to be on an Insurance contract list of Salvage Dealers, ie contracts cost money.
    Hence, there is only one way the vehicle is returned to the insured. That is when the claim is kicked out, normally for non disclosure of important information on the original policy form.
    So maybe you will think diferently of me now, it is really not Christian like to be so rude to a person you have never met.

    Let's play nice gents.

    Mr Angry hasn't personally insulted anyone so he doesn't deserve it back.

    Mr Angry if you're just here to annoy then please just go away. You've made your feelings clear, the forum members have certainly made theirs clear.
