    Basically, iv got the leather heated seats, the loom from kufatec and the climate control with the heated buttons, is there anything else i require for this installation? i just wanted to know if anyone else has retro fitted heated seats into an a3 and if they could provide me with some assistance? because i know that its not just a plug and play job.

    See above.

    I think thats all you need.
    the switches does all the controlling and the Kufatec loom makes it close to 100% plug and play.
    You just need to earth the loom and plug it in to a live with a fuse.

    right, that would explain the extra wires with the loom, theres three wires, im guessing, one must be permanent live, the other switch live and an earth? so could i earth it anywhere or is there a specific place?
    cheers
