    theres no wire with a red plug on the seat, also the yellow air bag plug on the seat is a square block plug, but the other yellow plug it goes into is thin

    Jw, did you take out the seat, because ive heard they weigh alot and much less a non electric seat would weigh?

    I think you will find that the WIRE colours will match, just that the plugs are different. You could probably remove your old plugs and splice them to the new seat of a plug n play option

    very easy, fool proof, either a 13mm nut X2 on the front of the seat when you push it all the way back or X2 torque screws, depends if male of female bracket

    I rekon mbit less or the same, i have not got heated but have got adjustable lumbar. But was reading the lightweight recaros are in the rs4's and r32's. Basic they weigh 15kg, saw rs4's for £200 on ebay, but was heated and electric, i would want just the plain lightweight recaros. would save about 30kg in total.
