Hi,

I have this kind of seats in my mk7.

http://s3.caradvice.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Volkswagen-Golf-35.jpg

I'm thinking about change them to some leather ones from an used/wrecked mk7 and talked about the change with some friend who told me that I may have some problems/erros due to the airbags on the seats.

Is there anyway I could change the seats without any problems?
I was thinking about this set:

Note: ask the dealer to solve any kind of error due to some mod is hopeless. They don't do anything about mods who "modify the character of the car"... like some leds :rolleyes:

Reckon that both seats have the same side airbag system.

You might be able to get DK Schweizer to supply you with a set of leather seat covers, and to your own design eg two tone.

And DK Schweizer is full leather all round - not just the seat faces with vinyl elsewhere as supplied by VW.

Any car trimmer would be able to fit them in a few hours. In fact it is virtually a DIY job, only special tools are hog ring pliers and an air gun.

Hi,

Thank you for your hekp ColinStone. I'll be looking for DK.

Yet, I have another doubt. Is it possible to retrofit heated seats? I mean, if I buy a seat with heat function and the AC control unit is it a plug&play question?

Regards
