My seats aren’t heated and I know it’s an expensive seat swap or retro fit.

Someone on another forum had said they were very happy with aftermarket plug in ones. I’ve had a quick look on Amazon and they seem to be fairly naff looking generic fit ones but I was wondering if anyone knew of any that work well with our seats, to make things harder my seats are grey.

Edit ‘ not perfect but not a bad match.

I fitted some Waeco ones and have done a full write up on Boxa.net. They worked very, very well. Mine were grey aswell, you need to be a little competent in the fitting.

Hope that helps

Cheers Nick

As Grey says, ideally you want to fit the pads that go inside the seat, you need to take the seat apart and I'm guessing that is fiddly as the pads cost £30

but fitted seems to be between £000 and £500!
