I plan to do the conversion sometime within the next few weeks b4 it gets cold outside. What brand did you get and who did the conversion for you? I talked to a couple of upholstry shops here and they all wand $200-$250. The company I plan to get the elements from says the installation is really simple and that I don't have to go to a shop to do it - I will most likely take that option and DIY. Do you have any diagrams of the seat and electrical system?Beetlemania said:I got a heat kit when I had my cloth seats reupholstered with a leather kit. Since I already had the cushions exposed they didn't charge the full labor cost to install the heaters. I even had the switches installed in the factory spot, even though they're different switches. I've had good luck with them over the years!
