    Default Fitting Leather Seats

    Looking at maybe getting a leather interior from a veccy elite. I need a couple of questions answered , firstly, my sri has manual seats and the elite has electric controls . can it be changed ? secondly, the elites are heated , can that also be made to work, i doubt my car has the wiring but you never know with the vectras, thanks

    if the wiring was already in the floor did it work as soon as the switches were added on the dash ?

    Yep all lit up and worked with it all wired in place. Mine is a 2007, no idea if the looms are in place, just have to check the wires in the loom on the floor compared to the seats

    I've put full leather in my SRi (55 plate pre face lift) but I don't have the wiring loom for the heated seats, I was told it's more trouble than it's worth trying to wire them up. Unless anybody knows different.

    It's a bit chilly at first Terry, but fortunately I keep the car in the garage, which houses the central heating boiler, and has a double glazed door and window, with an electric roller door, so it's basically draught proof, and it never goes much below 5 degrees in there. So it's not a problem for me. I don't get out much either so my car rarely sees frost. lol.

    It was your post from last year that got me thinking about changing to leather, very nice btw.

    my vec is an 08 sri , no idea if it has the wiring for the heated seats tho! blue estates facelift estate has so hopefully mine has.
