I found someone parting out an SVT and used proper SVT switches in the stock location then wired up to the proper pin on the SVT wire harness. If not using SVT switch, you just need a simple on/off switch and I'd suggest a couple quick connects incase you ever have to disconnect the seat/switch. If using the SVT switch, you will also need to tap into a headlight source for illuminating the button.

Which if you are getting the seats with the heat already wired to the harness, its going to be a real easy install. Hardest part of installing heat is installing the actual seat heat elements (hog rings on the seats suck) but you dont need to worry about that in a full seat swap. Conversely, if you didnt want to buy new seats, you just need seat heating pads you can find everywhere on the net and install under the seat fabric

Also, you typically need to switch over your current seat belts and seat position sensors. At least i did going from non-svt to Svt seats. I didnt have to worry about seat airbags since my car didnt have them but that has been an issue for others
Do you know what fuse is for the heated seats? Going to finally hook mine up.

Let me ask you this: I got the seats heating, at least the back part (butt portion seems to be broken). I simply did a add a fuse, with a 15 amp fuse to a switch directly to the heaters. Issue I'm having is that it gets super hot. What would be causing this? Do the back and butt portions have separate thermostats? If I somehow had power going through the heater backwards, would it bypass the thermostat?

When I had the Recaro's and the stock heat, they never got uncomfortably hot. Both the seat and the back felt the same temperature. All one temperature level, either on or off and took several minutes for me feel. This was all through the leather though, i never had a reason to feel them outside of the seat (came preinstalled with the seats.)

I have read about the bottom and back burning out at different times though and needing to replace one section or the other.
