aftermarket heated seats
« on: May 07, 2011, 10:05:34 PM »
I know you can get heated seats as a extra when you buy a new 3 but has anyone tried fitting aftermarket heated seat pads inside the standard seats, I've seen kits on eBay that you can buy and fit by powering off the cigerette lighter socket but has anyone actually fitted anything like them?

any info would help?

they make no bonus on fitting them, because most of the time they actually take longer than what Mazda say it should, just because they need to make sure its done properly etc, to be fair due to the amount of man hours that go into fitting the heated seats the Mazda price isn't too bad at all..

yes but the whole point I'm trying to make is people who don't have them and want them on the 1st generation 3 like me, who don't want to pay through the nose for the usual over priced stuff that Mazda sells, and trust me it's would be over priced since Mazda charge at minimum about £55 an hour, so your talking £440 just to put them in, and the parts also cost a stupid amount to,
