  1. Heated seat kit

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Been wanting to do this for a few years now. - Just never did. Looking at some heated seat kits on ebay in preparation for my Alfa and my long commutes soon to come. Had anyone done this, if so was it easy to fit. Wiring will be easy, just getting the pads into the seats without knackering them.
  2. QV Carbon Seats - Not heated!?

    Alfa Giulia
    I was quite surprised when I spec'd the Carbon Seats on my order to find that you couldn't also spec the comfort/electric pack, and more specifically, any heated seat option. Whilst I expected the carbon seats to be manually adjusted, I'd still have thought they would be heated. As the days are...
  3. Heated rear window

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Strange problem on my new facelift when you press the button for the heated rear window the button lights up the symbol comes on, on the ICS then after about half a second both go out. I've checked the fuses & replaced the relay but it's had no effect. Any ideas?
  4. Anyone had luck repairing heated rear window?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    One of the elements is dead, found the break using a 12v light probe, very small gap in the element. Reading the reviews of the conductive paint products on Amazon do not inspire me. Any other solution, other than a replacement glass? All the best Pub

  9. Heated seat switches... Alternative fix

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As I'm sure a lot of you know the Alfa heated seat switches are a) rubbish and b) stupidly expensive to replace every other year. Anyway after a 3rd one went in 18months I decided to look at a permanent fix/modification. Ive always owned Jap cars prior to the Alfa GT and know there generally...
