    How easy is it to wire these in? Any one on here done this before? (I've read the airbag warning light, so no probs there.. Is it a simple case of a 12v supply and a switch for the heat or...??

    They are pretty easy to wire up, I just made a complete loom up for mine with some s3 Heated seat switches and picked up the power feeds from the relay plate under the dash.
    Also i didn't have air bags in my original seat so didn't have to bother on the new ones.
