Is it possible to modify the front seat(s) of my wife's 1996 E300D to make them heated? OK, now is it reasonably affordable?

Our dealer said that it would require something like a chassis re-wire, and don't even think about it, or something to that effect (wife's translation.)

Thanks, and BCingU, Jim

Let's see...

New seat covers $1,070/pr
Heating pads $536/pr
New wood trim for switches $248
Switches $172
Cable harness $59
Labor ???

I would estimate $2,500 to $3,000 would be about right.

Hmm, I see what the dealer meant, don't even think about it!

This definitely sounds like an option to buy with the car, new, when the price is "nominal."

Thank's for being here, and for your reply!
