Got to mess with a Mini Cooper S while in the Sonic yesterday. Joe (that use to have a Red SVT) and his wife just picked one up. Super nice looking car, white with a black roof.

Was good stuff.

Prolly a dumb question and I'm guessing they don't but id like to know what id have to do to get the heated seats an TC switch on mine...I've own the car for 2 months now, known about them for years plus have read up Mods, problems etc.. about um and finely got one seeing as they have way less problems then the SVT contours had(which I owned one of them before the focus and that was a nightmare) plus i read and heard the svtf will run forever given treated right but who wants to do that and not have fun with such a bada$$ car, ya know lol

sent from my rooted thunderblaster!
Yes, if your svt didn't come equipped with heated seats, the harnesses for the driver and passenger side seat heaters are under the console. You just need to purchase the driver and passenger heat switches and find a console that has the spots for the switches. Then source some svt seats that have the heating elements. The svt Recaros seats that come standard with the European appearance package (EAP) are a direct swap too. The Recaros are a big upgrade comfort-wise and the side bolsters hold you in place, so they are well worth it if you can find some.

I didn't see a harness for the traction control. I just put a traction control switch to fill the hole in the console, even though it's non functional.

My sonic blue 02 had heated seats in it which I thought was odd. Had the blue insert seats, not recaros
