    I've decided i want heated seats (will also help me with my back pain).
    What do i need to do to get them heated ?
    Is the loom there ready for the heater pads to be plugged straight into ?

    I was lucky the floor loom was there. I've done this mod, you will need two heater mats per seat, two seat wiring harnesses, two dash switches plus some other stuff.

    You are looking at around £250 to £300 for all the parts for both seats.

    Slightly OT Fil, but how will heated seats help with back pain? I ask because I have back problems too, and can't see how it would help.

    The heater element is only in the seat base, the seat back doesn't warm up at all....

    Had heated seat base and back in my Laguna Tourer. Seats were full leather and when i had back pain, the heaters helped me out with easing it, pretty much like those heated pads that you get from the chemists for muscle pains.
    I'm thinking of a leather re-trim again and would like the heaters fitted if i do go for it.
