    Default Retro-fit these?

    I am looking at buying a donor Vectra that has factory fit parking sensors, electric (memory) leather interior etc, the car is a 2002 MY.
    Could I use this vehicle to put these into my 2006 Vectra SRI?

    But surely the OP could just transfer the looms from the donor car. Alot of work but well worth the effort

    The main problem is that a 2002 car will be half can bus and the 2006 will be full

    The main things I am interested in are the heated leather seats (front and rear) and the park assist system. I have the heated seat looms from another loom I bought to do my rear electric windows.
    I have looked at wiring diagrams for both years and they look the same, the heated seats plug into the same style connectors and in the same pins. Is the seat module in the seat or elsewhere?

    Thanks Ken, I was about to start adding the looms for the rear electric windows and heated front seats, may just wait a while now, and do it if I buy the donor car.
    Not 100% sure what else is in the donor so not sure what else I may choose to add to mine, providing the wiring etc is compatable.
