    Audi A4 b6 front heated seat elements

    Hi all
    Is there a difference in the heated seat elements between cloth and alcantara seats? I've just purchased half alcantara/leather seats to upgrade my a4 b6 avant(xmas prezzy) they are the sport seats(i've already got sport cloth seats) and would like to retain my heated seats. Also does anyone know if audi do inserts to replace winder handle holes(rear door cards) my interior trim code is nb.
    Thanks in advance
    Steve

    Hi All
    Found a useful option code website to identify interior trim codes. I had n3a which was fabric cloth seats, Alcantara seats are option code n2s. Looking on vagcat the part numbers for base and back heated seat elements seem to be the same for both types of seats. So i think all should be ok.
    Thanks

    Surely if you have bought the Leather and alcantara seats then the elements are already in there?

    I know on mk4 golfs some of the "non heated seats" actually had the elements in, just not wired up... Wonder if this could apply to the A4 too??

    Audi very rarely put any non-essential wires in the loom - all looms are custom to that specific car.
    However, I did hear back a couple of years that leather seats had the heater elements present in all seats.

    You can get a heated seat wiring loom from Kufatec - interesting note on this page says Recaro seats have the heated elements fitted.

    1 - Just warm and good for normal winter days
    2 - warmer
    3 - nice mid range for frosty days
    4 - bit warmer, little uncomfortable for a long time
    5 - nice for that first warm boost on very cold mornings
    6 - cheese toastie !
