    Pull the switch blanks out of the dash, if there's a connector behind them, then it's pre-wired

    If there is wiring behind the plug then that means there is wiring behind the plug. It's normally the floor loom that's missing (as with mine)

    And they don't need activated via tech2

    There are a few threads on here mate with regards to the wiring. Worth checking the plug under your seat to see if you have the pins first......if you have an earlier car then the wiring might be in place.

    I've not gotten round to fitting my wiring yet

    Front's don't need activating, only the rears do.

    And having the wiring behind the switches doesn't guarantee the wiring is under the seats.

    Edit: yeah what John said
