    So I was washing my car today (yes, it does sometimes happen) and came across these buttons:

    Firstly I can't believe I've never noticed these before. Secondly, what the hell are they supposed to do!? :think:

    I've tried them and they don't actually do anything... Guessing they were for electric lumbar support? Wouldn't mind having a go at fixing that if they were!

    Electric lumbar mate :) not wired up though.

    Seats were from a top spec tdi Quattro. The car originally came with cloth seats.

    They just need a 12v feed to work. I never bothered.
