Smile Aftermarket Seat Heaters Installed!!!

I just got finished installing a set of aftermarket carbon fiber seat heaters in my trep and I couldn't be happier. They are a great alternative to putting in 300m seats, especially if you want to keep the cloth interior. The kit only cost me about $80 shipped and it only took a few hours to install. They heat up much quicker than the stock ones in my mom's maxima and everything is really neat and with the switch mounted next to the power seat buttons it looks stock. Removing the upholestry was intimidating at first but once you get everything apart its not that bad. I highly recommend this mod to everyone.

Where did you get the heater from? A guy I work with is wanting to get one for the passenger side of their grand prix. Seems pontiac thought it would be a good idea to only put one on the drivers side, and said they could install one for $500.

I found a link for a guy sometime last year. I think I might be able to find it. May not be the one 00/rt used but lemme see...

I remember - I saw them at www.katzkin.com. Their seat heaters are made by WET. Kinda found WET's website and they make steering wheel heaters as well. Don't know if they sell to individual consumers or just oem's or companies

Another place

These are the heaters I bought. I bought mine from the same company but I got them for like ten bucks cheaper on eBay. They make a GM and Mopar licensed kit too but they're totally overpriced. I would imagine if you could remove the upholestry on the back seats you could put these in there as well. The kit comes with both a pad for the seat bottom and the seat back. The great part is the width can't be altered but you can trim the length to fit. I cut about 3" off each pad and was able to just tuck them in under the fabric by just unhooking the j-channel clip. It wasn't necessary to cut and replace the hog rings which would be the real hard part. I guess I wouldn't say you need seat heaters in cloth seats, but they really are nice to have. I forgot to take pictures during the install but I did take a shot of the switch installed in the factory panel.Just click on seat heater album

Ummm....
At -35 C, you need seat heaters, cloth or otherwise.
Canada in the winter man, friggin cold in some places!
I remember when I was posted out west:
First thing in the morning, jump in the truck. Seat hard as a rock but your butt is still warm. 5 minutes down the road the seat has softened because it's sucked all the heat out of your @ss. 10 minutes further down the road, you start to get feeling back in your butt. By that time you're usually close to where you want to go. Get out of the truck, go into the store, come back out, and start the whole cooling/warming process again.
Man did that suck! Holy frick it's cold in the prairies in winter.

Had an Audi with cloth seats and heaters, everybody wanted me to drive them around come cold weather.

Very handy things, seat heaters.

Cheers
