    Yes, needs some wiring modifications to work electrics of course, give me a shout if you need an installer.

    Price is dependent on how bad you want mate, cant really offer advice on that one & if no electrics already, the needs properly wiring into fusebox with repair wires & proper cable/fuse rating, dont just whack some old speaker wire in, no offense, but I've seen some really **** work in my time, unsafe work aswell.

    Yep, can be done, but not an easy mod with all the wiring etc. If in any doubt then I would perhaps consider taking Nigel up on this one. At least you know you will have a perfectly finished off job.

    Happy new year Nige. Need to update my whatsapp. Been doing the knowledge for a month now, going really well. Sold the Audi as we no longer needed it as I bought my self a nice little honda sh125, and we bought ourselves a nice little 3 year old fiesta 1.6tdci, great little car, and to be fair it will be the other half driving it most days for the next three years at least, lol.

    Quite amusing though when I turn up to people's homes to do cruise fits and I pull up in a Ford, haha!!

    Hope you been keeping well?

    when fitting the s5 seats make sure you get the right airbag plug as you will need to change it over to get the seat airbags working and like nigel said the electrics need to go to the fuse box. that should get the lumbar and seat adjustment going.
