What and where now? Where did I possibly break the seat heater? :D
By elbowing not-sure-how-deep into the bottom-facing heater pad. Same reason why you're not supposed to knee on the seat when, for example, retrieving something from the right rear seat when only the left door is accessible due to garage walls.

Oh that.. ok.. well, we'll find out :D. The seats aren't great anyway.. especially the driver seat looks crap and has a torn seam, but the seat heater in that one works splendid :D

That is in fact something I have never considered, only the effect on ripping the seats and such.. but it is obviously rather logical. We have considered swapping in a different interior at some point, depending on possible color changes of the car. Factory sets aren't that expensive used. Alternatively maybe just swap the front seats for better identical black ones.

Like, if this was complete with a driver seat, it might be a great candidate for a leather restoration if nothing is ripped... and if it wasn't literally at the other end of Germany, even past @narf town :ROFLMAO:



Or these, if they're actually Eos seats, and in really good shape. Same problem though.. in your neck of the woods, not mine :D

Nope, GTI plaid seats or nothing. :)

If they fit from a 2 door, maybe Kelly likes the design? Gotta look up the design and show it to her..

-edit-
Quick research shows: Eos has a bigger airbag in the seat, so that would have to be swapped over, for which the seat bolster hast to be modified, and in theory even the intended rip in the seat cover has to be modified... so... let's not swap Golf seats in.
