    Anyone added Factory or Aftermarket Heated front Seats to a Mirage not Equipped?

    I am interested in the SE hatch, which unlike the CVT equipped G4, does not come with or have heated seats optional.

    The dealers seem to have a 3rd party in some cases install it, or their own service dept.

    Anyone had them added?

    Might it be more affordable to order the factory parts, then have a 3rd party install them after buying the car?

    The dealer that has a 3rd party do the work quoted $150-200 a seat. The dealer that puts in the factory parts charges $699 for both. But they get it done.

    Is there a source for the original parts?

    Inuvik?

    Hmm.. I do miss my heated seats. I installed heated outside mirrors and might need to tackle this too.

    I have the Rostra kit in mine and they work great!

    I put one of the aliexpress specials under my seat cover. $10, plugs into cigarette lighter and heat in a minute or 2.

    I've done them on other cars. The aftermarket kits aren't that difficult to install. A kit off amazon costs about $50. $150-$200 a seat sounds like a good deal if I was going to pay someone to do it.

    Dealer was $600. I think 3rd Party is closer to $200 a seat.

    Why OEM specifically when Rostra and others are comparable quality at a much larger discount?

    I am really unfamiliar with the differences. I was more thinking of getting the same switches, same area in the middle console that the Mirage G4 SE has. I figured factory would make it look more factory.
