    Evening all, im planning to install S4 recaros in my avant in the coming month. I currently have an se with fully manual seats and no heating. I will be getting a new heater control panel and loom to adapt for the heated seats.

    Does anyone on here know if my original harness will be prepared for plug and play electric seats?

    Im not installing memory function as its not worth it in my opinion.


    Also has anyone ever retrofitted rear electric windows. Im assuming I could get all four door modules convenience module and loom, install it and vag-com it? Or is there an easier alternative?


    Thank you in advance for any assistance!

    Usually nothing is plug and play when it comes to looms for electric seats, I've always had to make my own.

    If your good with electrics then power could probably be split from other bits and bobs, not that I have any clue haha, wanted all this myself but don't think there's many places around here to help when I cock up.

    I had sports seats so already had the loom fitted for lumbar adjustment, I took my time over it to make sure the fit was as OE as possible, took best part of 2 full days over the weekend, looms are under the carpets etc rather than four circles route of up the side of the centre console, no need to extend cables….

    Link to loom here, might be worthwhile checking under you seat to see if the wiring plug for electric lumbar adjustment is there, if not speak to Kufatec when you order and they can advise….
