    Heated seat elements

    If i were to change my front seats in my coupe - black heated leather to some different seats like some big chunky Recaros, is it possible to install heating elements whilst i was having them retrimmed and get them to work with the stock wiring?

    If Vauxhall won't sell the heated seat elements seprately, than would a 3rd party heating element work do you think? Or If i bought some some heated seats from another Marque, would it be possible to wire this up to the Astra's loom?

    Yeah that's true, i'll have a word with Roy and see what he reckons. There's a prestige breakers near me who get all kinds of top of the line motors in, so i popped in on thursday to see what he had in. There were some mental seats in, but a couple of sets really took my fancy as they aren't too different from what i've got but different enough to make a difference.

    There was also a pair of seats from a Ferrari 360 race car, but the gadgey wanted £2k........ EACH!
