I've been looking into this option for a while now, and I've decided to get a full heated seat kit for when I repair my leather recaros.
The kit comes with both driver and passanger kits for seat base, and backrest.
The kit also includes switches, loom, and relays, and will fit standard, or Recaro seats.
The kits are used by Cobra as an optional extra on their seats, and are also used by Jaguar.

I haven't spoke to them yet with regards to a group buy, as I wanted to gauge interest first.

The kits are £68, but we may be able to get them cheaper on a group buy.

So who's interested?

Think the sale might have been better if we coming into winter rather than coming into summer lol!

But still, at that price its a steal!

See what money is like, i might opt in ;)

Just need to remove the seat covers, fit the heated pads, and refit covers.
After that, it's just wiring.

Ha.
I only just found these kits today Chris.
Other than that, the option was 12V heat mats at £90 a go, which comes to £180 per seat, plus temperature regulators etc. - sod that!!!

I will speak to the guy, and find out a price for quantity.

Andy, I've put up with it for 11 years now. Starting to do my head in. Lol.

Just spoke to them, and I've got them down to £60.

If we can get 10, he said he may be able to knock a touch more off.

I'll be getting them delivered to me, and then they can either be collected, or posted out at extra cost.

I'll be ordering within a couple of weeks, so I will need deifinites fairly soon.

Me, Babbie, my uncle's Freelander, and my mum's pink honda jazz.
Also possibly the Colt Mrs Stabloid will be having from me.

There may be others going on the list too.

Just in case people have forgotten about this, I'll be placing the order in about a week and a half.

Just a couple more names will get the price down a touch more.

Fishy?
Barlow?
Mr Addict?

Base is 280 x 400, and backrest is 280 x 300.
Like I say, Cobra use this exact set.

I would of been up for a set if it was later on (as I'm starting a new job so don't get paid for a while yet). If you do another group buy I'll most likely have some for my next car :P

I think this will probably be a 1 time deal.
I can send you a link to it though, as they aren't that expensive anyway.
