I use mine on level 3 all the time. Helps with my lumbar arthritis and scoliosis, and I don't think its too hot.

Can't even imagine 3, I tried 2 once and thought I was sitting in a frying pan.

I'd bet her toasted buns make for good hand warmers on a cold day.

OK, so it sure seems like something is wrong with mine. I don't know anybody else locally with a Mk7 for me to compare with but my past experience correlates with all of you guys. Usually having them on the highest level fires them off really quickly and within a few minutes I've had to turn them down to "1".

In my car now, level "3" takes a long time to get warm and never gets past the warm feeling, they never get hot

Being in Phoenix I've never used the seat heater but I sure could have used a seat cooler.

Yeah, that's one of the things that irritates me about the R. My 2l 16v GTI came with BBS wheels and recaro seats that the "regular" GTi didn't have. The first R32 came with Koenig seats. The R? Completely same interior as the GTi and on top of that, no option for a sunroof! WTF!

The Jetta GLI has heated AND cooled seats, plus memory control for the seats. Why doesn't the R have that? The R should've come with the Macan/brembo brakes, BBS wheels, Recaro seats, etc, etc, etc. Total BS

I have leather seats in my gti. They take forever to warm up but they do get super hot. Uncomfortably so

My wife has a 2020 GLI. I dig her amenities and ancillary stuff more than my 2020 gti if I can be frank.

I've owned VW/Audi/Porsches for decades and on all of them the heated seats worked quickly and were really hot, especially on full blast. The seats in my 19 R take a long time to get warm and never really get hot, even on full blast.

Is this normal for them or something I need to have the dealer look into?
Im now on my 3rd Mk7 golf and all of them had very hot, fast-warming heated seats. Sounds like something’s wrong with your R’s

Yeah, I agree. I'm having the dealer look into it when they replace my broken passenger grab handle.
