I’m looking for a pair of S5 heated seats to replace the S line seats in my coupe.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the seats in the car. In fact, they’re the most comfortable I’ve ever sat in. However, Herself has always had issues with them. Which issues were brought into sharper focus after she sampled the seats in Junior’s S5 recently. Since then, the paeans to the comfort of those seats (and the disparaging of the perfectly good S line seats) have just got louder and louder. As replacing the seats is likely to be less expensive (just) than divorce, here we are.
So, I’m specifically after power adjusted and heated seats (complete with appropriate seat modules) in black leather or black leather/alcantara, sorta like this:
Happy to consider part-ex, but the real bugger is going to be shipping, unless I get real lucky and find someone in Oz who’s willing to part with a pair of seats.
PM me if interested.
So, contacted the wrecker in Revesby (which is in New South Wales, not Queensland, by the way. That’s a good thing - hundreds of kilometres further south and, therefore, more likely to have heated seats. Only the truly insane have heated seats in sub-tropical Queensland!), but have yet to hear back.
Mind you, I’m not holding my breath. A closer examination of the pix supplied in the ad show the passenger window open and covered by a bit of ragged plastic, which don’t bode well for the condition of the seats. Also, there doesn’t appear to be any seat heater buttons on the HVAC panel.
Ah, racks, I’ve missed you, mate. Every bullet so far... 8-P
Now that I’ve stopped laughing, I can advise that, nope, still hitched, and still manfully keeping my peace over the wailing and gnashing of teeth about the 5’s seats. If, however, I can sort something out with copanacional, that will all change. Yay!
Your vehicle suggestions are... unusual, though now I’m living in the country, the notion of a ute isn’t that far fetched. The Mighty Boy coupe, on the other hand...
