Default retrofitting equipment

has anyone retrofitted massage seats to there a8 please

it is one of the options i would have loved to have but couldnt find the right car with the option fitted

is it a simple case of coding in the massage seats or is it more complex and involving new modules and wiring harnesses ?

thanks

Pretty sure they're self contained so straight swap over, no coding involved I suspect...

Are they a button on the seat, or is the massage function done through the climate panel?

Button on the side of the seat for massage. It just pulses the lumbar support basically. Very simple and 99.99% sure it doesn't require any additional connectivity.

Vented seats is a whole different matter.....

Im inclined to agree. I think 'massage' is probably overselling it a bit really. If the car has it fine, but probably wouldn't go to the effort of sourcing seats with it on for a retrofit personally.

If it stayed on for more than 10 mins before it gave up and stopped it would be a bit more useful....
