    Hey guys,

    got it these seats today for an absolute bargain !!!

    anyways I'm putting them in my leon Cupra. The seats had been in storage for a while and as such req a heavy duty clean. Having said that there is not 1 mark or rip on any if them ;)

    my question is, there are 2 plugs underneath the seat. A yellow 1 and a red 1. I'm guessing the yellow 1 is tge airbag and I'm not sure what the red 1 is ???

    there is a button on the side to suggest it may be an electric plug ??
    also would they be heated ?? Or would that req another plug ?

    If my car does not have a red plug there at the moment, how do l get 1 installed and roughly how much is it gonna cost ??

    sorry for the essay, but not sure on these issues lol

    cheers in advance ;)

    Red is for power for the electric lumbar support. If you not bothered about that just leave them as is

    Didnt you say you paid something like £50 for these?

    That is a steal, I would love these in mine.

    yes mate ano lol ;))

    the he guy I bought them from had put S3 seats in his and these were sitting taking up too much space in his garage. He also wanted someone to get good use out of them. I never haggled the price or anything, he just said £50 and I obviously accepted :)

    cant bt wait to get them in. I've cleaned that 1 up and the rest are in the same condition, just really dirty. But soap and water and leather cleaner costs almost nothing. Then I'll have some really nice seats :)

    I never seem to come across these mental bargains :sob:

    Lovely looking seats, miss my old facelift leathers, so much more comfy and nicer looking.
