right guys after pick up my new Supersport seats from S5 i will need some help get them working !

my A4 B7 has only lumbar suport , heating and airbag connectors - so i have totally 3 connectors Yellow for bags, green for heating and red for power!
I know that have to upgrade the cables from 1m up to 2.5 because of the power BUT because they are with memory i read a few things that will be easy if i find the correct memory switch will be easy insted of rewire the whole seats !
Is there anyone who can help - i'm ready to pay for fitting if they start moving or some help will be appreciate
Thank in advance
this is what they look like

dimi your best plan would be to sell them to me and save yourself a lot of work.. haha
Its not a big issue fitting them dimi etc, you just need to identify what circuits you need to use and a suitable supply .

Is a bit more complicate mate ! They have memory module so if i want them working with memory i need buttons and harness to go with or i need to avoid all these modules and all 3 electric motors to receive streight power and working only like normal electric seats - both ways will do me !
I'm not fussy spending another 200 on parts and £££ for labouring but will see what NHN will offer if he want to do it !
If not i will do it as i know - only power seats

For all people want A5 seats in A4 - seat belt anchor is different now but nothing major and all connectors are different as well so they needs to be new or your existing one (chopped mine) as they have to be ordered from Audi ! They are not £££ but time ! These seats want "+" and "earth" to work and bolts are same !
Hope that help

Dimi, I've said it before and I'll say it again, those seats look awesome mate! I personally prefer them to the wingback RS4 seats.

I never ride the wingback but i love Supersports for now !
I drove them yesterday 100mile trip and they are lovely !
Thanks for Your words mate

Hello, I have an A4 B6 a bought seats out of S5. As you said, they are direct bolt, eletric features fully work, I also connected the airbag but I´m having a problem with connecting the heating of the seats. Anyone would be so enormously kind and would help me figure this out? I know that the heating is very different from S5 but I don´t think so I´m smart enough to figure it out. So guys, please? Anything helpful you can share? Anything.. Thank you!

Hi guys, I just bought my RS5 seats which I want to install into my B6. Apart from the seatbelt anchor, my concern is the component protection... Did anyone of you guys have issues with that? Because I want also my memory seat position to work... what would be the best approach? Change the modules?
Thanks

CP doesn't exist on the B7 like the 8T/K, they will work power wise, the heating system is much more involved, memory side not tried to do on the B7 for supersport seats, although had thoughts how to achieve, but it's not straight forward so to speak.

I had seat belt anchors on my S5's, so I'm bemused by others reports.

Thanks NHN for the quick answer.
So, the CP won't activate on the 8T modules under the seat? Interesting...
About the heating, so just "plug and play" with of course re-pinning the connectors to the right ones wont work? Would you mind share what more has to be done?

Okay, so the toughest point will be the memory to get it to work...

Will keep you updated as soon as I get them and start working on it

When connected to the bus on say another A5, it will trigger cp.

Full features aren't available on say another A5 until cp has been cleared.

Heated requires quite a bit of wiring, I can't go into as takes too long.to explain.

Found this thread and I am trying to get a set of S5 (2013 w/memory) to work no need to use memory. I had one seat working with direct +\- then after a few minutes it stopped. Nothing else was connected just a straight bench test. Is there anything can related that locks them up after a few minutes? The other seat did not move when tested. I am assuming it is related to being memory seats or lack of CAN and need to test them. If I need a low voltage signal to simulate cam I’ll give that a try.

any thoughts? This is for a retrofit I to a non Audi. It’s been done with non memory but trying to eliminate the memory or test to see if the comfort module died. I no longer have my Audi so seeing how to make use of these.

It May help for some folks trying to put these in an A4. I retrofitted the S5 seats by using a nonmemory A4 harness. You can remove the S5 harness and memory module and swap in the non-memory A4 harness. You need matching seat controls as the memory and non-memory are different. Works like a charm if you have no plans to retrofit memory. The A4 harness instead of the comfort/memory goes direct to the motors.

If your car does not have heat but you want to get these to work you can get either factory switches (which I believe have the regulator built-in) or you use an aftermarket heat kit but only for the switches/wiring. I wired up my seats using an aftermarket kit that had regulators for heat and connected to the +/- on the S5 seats. Works perfectly.

These were not going in an Audi which is why an aftermarket kit (which fit my factory spots) worked for me but the similar setup may work for you if you either do not have the wiring in the car or do not want to deal with it.

Regarding the seat belt anchor. The 2 door vehicles (coupe and convertible) have the belt anchored to the b-pillar and the 4 door cars (sportback) have the belt anchored to the seat.
For the people that have installed S5 seats from a 2 door vehicle, how did you deal with with the seat belt?

If your seats are from a 2 door and they're going into a 4 door chasis, then as you mention, you're missing the anchored point on the bracket/frame of the seat.

This was my exactpy my situation, which I only discovered after fitting the very heavy S5 seats.

So I swapped the bracket/frame that connects the seat to the body of the car from my original A4 seats (with anchor on frame) and attached those to the S5 super sports. This included the horizontal pieces that hold the tubular motor (for forward/ back movement).

Bleeding hands, dremeling out a f*cked screw head and about eight hours of work, I had S5 seats in my A4, belts connected and correct movement!

If you don't have a donor A4, search eBay for a damaged set - which is what I did to get my original A4 seats ready to sell.

I might have photos - let me know if that might help.

I also have the original S5 brackets for a coupe/2 door, w/motor.
