    Seats sliding when braking/cornering hard

    This is a very common problem. I had it on mine and as for as im aware nobody as of yet has posted a fix. To be honest i was to lazy to get under and attempt to tighten the bolts that secure the seat but its definitely worth a try.

    Where to connect heated car seats?

    Just cut the loom and find the positive and negative and attach it to any switched 12v supply like the ignition switch and ground the negative to the chassis. pretty simple really. Not sure about the heated side of things but to get the things moving any 12v supply will do.
