    youll probably find you only have to hook up the live wires and the earth wires for the lumbar the additionals may be memory or the like

    Right theres good news and bad.

    The seats aren't a straight fit you need to take off the guide lugs so that you can line up the bolts. But once there off you can bolt them straight in.

    You'll also need the electrics fully working on the seats as they are full electric ajustable so you cant ajust your seating position without it. Mine are in such a position as i cant physically drive the car until this is done.

    Electrics.

    The airbag is an easy fix just a put an A3 plug ontop the S5 seats and that will work. The other wiring is totally different so I'm waiting on the DVD i brought off ebay so that i can print off the two wiring diagrams for my mate whos a auto electrician. I recommend you do the same.

    I'm hopeing that he can make a loom that will have S5 female plugs on one side and A3 male plugs on the other which will make the seats plug and play [​IMG]

    I'll let you know as soon as I've got the diagrams [​IMG]
