    Without being in the car, obviously. Any differences in the plug or something?

    Cheers

    Easiest way to check is to see if it has heated seat switches.

    If yours is a facelift they'll be underneath the climate control, and if it's a pre-facelift it'll be above the radio either side of the traction control light.

    Can you have a look at the ones in the car and see how many plugs they have?

    Or you could take the seats apart and see if they have the heated pads, but I don't think thats really a sensible idea

    There should be a holder underneath for all the connectors
    If i remember correctly there are 4 plugs as there are spaces for 4 in the holder, if yours has three id imagine theyre not heated mate

    Right, I thought you were being a bit simple if you couldn't see the switches!

    The green connector should be the one for the heated seats if I remember correctly.

    What seats have you got out of interest?

    Yup, i was told they were heated but never mind they were free anyway.

    Gonna sell the black and try to get hold of silver to swap with the yellow.

    Where were the black seats originally from? I know someone who's been after some black leathers for a while.

    Hi,

    I have a complete black heated leather interior, including door cards, except for the passenger seat available if anyone is interested. I had a faulty passenger seat and ended up having to buy a complete interior...

    I may also be prepared to split if say anyone wants a drivers seat replacement.

    Either post or pm if interested.

    Cheers,

    Keep the yellow mate! Silver is so common on black S3's.

    Sell the black leather for atleast £600 if its in good condition and spend the money on a remap!!
