Anyone tried to swap the D2 seats for the D3 seats? It would be an interesting project...

Assuming you're RHD, and these being from a LHD ? car though you will have to watch out for whether your new drivers seat has memory function, and airbag system may complain if the new passenger seat has no occupancy sensor, which I guess it wont have.

In the rear, again subject to you already having airbags etc, then its a fairly easy install but you'll need to supply some +12 into the rear seats for the lumbar / headrest to move. If you want the full oem look, you need to run a wire to the front for the headrest lowering switch too. Heating is a bit more complicated, but runs from the fuse box in the right hand side of the boot, into the switches in the back of the center console and back to the rear seats.

I'm assuming you've matched swb/swb or lwb/lwb as the recline angle of the LWB is different to the SWB and they seats wont fit properly without some mods in the rear if you mismatch.....

Edit: Just seen you're in Norway, so that the RHD/LHD bit covered, but I've left it in as advice to anyone else considering an import
Hello I have a lwb with the standard rear electric seats and I am swapping to sports electric seats from swb s8 is the difference in the seat base that moves or the actual cushion? What would the mods needed to make it work be?

According to the parts catalogue, the base section (#5 in the attached image) is different in the LWB model.

The part numbers for the SWB model are 4D0885305A (left) and 4D0885306A (right), and the part numbers for the LWB model are 4D0885310 (left) and 4D0885311 (right).

Solely based on what the parts catalogue shows, in theory it should just be a case of swapping the base section over... in theory.
