I'd just like to put on record my thanks to Steve (Devilish) and Rob (Trebor) who spent a considerable amount of time fitting new seat heaters to VeeKay.

I've just tested them on a short run and they were toasty warm before I'd gone half a mile :) Winter? Bring it on ;)

Thanks chaps :)

Were these OEM heaters or aftermarket? Our Rexton has none, but I've seen some good reports of aftermarket ones, so am quite tempted!

Aftermarket Dave

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-Set-Universal-seat-heating-retrofit-kit-Base-Back-Carbon-Auto-Car-2-Files-OVP-/271261505927?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3f28721987

They don't have the side wings, as it were, that Rover OEM heaters have but, from experience, these warm up so quickly and get much warmer than the OEM there is no loss in not having the wings.

They can be cut to size and are supplied with a High-Off-Low switch, although you don't need to use it.

Well worth the money in my view.

Look to be a bargain!

I'm not sure I'd have the balls to take my seats apart to fit them, but if I could find someone who could do it for me I'd be happy to pay them! I'd need to find a set of OEM switches, but that shouldn't be too hard - hopefully!

I wouldn't want to impose Paul, especially as the car in question is a not a Rover or MG! :D

It wouldn't be the first foreigner Dave :) Then again, there would be no experience of how to remove the seat covers :(

Objective if not scientific proof that the new heaters work better than OEM. I've just driven into Court and with the OEM heaters they would merely have been slightly warm by the time I parked the car.

Today they were toasty before I'd completed a quarter of the journey :)

Rob, did you by any chance do a "how To" for the Rover seats as I want to do mine in KOLK?

Well, this morning was quite frosty around here with a temperature of -2 degrees Celsius.

Used the parking heater mod for the first time this Winter and the FBH (Fuel burning heater.) fired up perfectly and within 20 minutes the car interior was warm and the engine temperature gauge, when I switched on, went straight to just over 1/4.

Combining that with the new heater pads, I had a very comfortable drive into work. :) In fact, I had to switch the heated seat off just before I left the M54.
