Can you share with us how much did you pay for the seats (used ?). I have non electric standard seats and I don't find them to be very comfortable so I'm thinking about swapping with the comfort ones. Since I have mono-zone climate I think I will not be able to use the heating/ventilation function but it would be enough to have electric movement; do you think is possible?
I've never tested an A4 with climate-comfort seats, are they "softer" and really more comfortable?

Thank you

i got the seats demo for 950 euros comlete with rear seats as well.electric move will be easy ,because there is lumber support in your seats all ready so take power from there.

WOW, what a bargain! I'm 'monitoring' ebay.de but I can only find "traditional" leather seats for a price in 1000-1500 (used seats).
My car don't have lumbar support either, do you think I'll be able to find a suitable power source 'near' the seats?

i rutther take a power line from the fuse box on the driver side next to the door and run it under the seat (carpet and in to the red plug of the seat.You dont have to lift carpet all the way just from the side by the door you can run the wire under the seat.also you could get your comfort seats to work maybe you want adjust the temerature separate but it will work.studie the ELSA system.
i have my original seats leather grey light ,electric sport line from my all road a4 2010 and they are allmost new ,if you need seats let me know

Hello!

Thanks for useful guide to retrofitting the seat memory. I've got an A5 coupe with 3L5 option (i.e. power front seats with no memory) and 8T0 959 760 C seat controllers already installed (same in memory (3L4) / no memory (3L5) configs, according to ETKA).

Am I getting everything right that in my case I only need to change the driver's door panel to start enjoying seat memory? Do I have to change any harnesses to install the door buttons?

Your kind advice is highly appreciated!

well i heard that in a5 the memory controler is allready installed under the seat .chk in your key function if you can activate drivers memory ,there is a forum on it .if the mem is working via your key memory function then all you have to do is fins a trim door panel with the memory buttons.It will be much more difficult to make the cables for the memory buttons only ,plus you will need to cut the trim to fit the mem buttons.
Have you located the controler under the seat?

Two modules present and responding via VCDS. ETKA also reports there is a single harness type for all cars with electric seats. Looks like only door disassembly may show if harness is okay.

Do you know if any extra coding memory is required after adding buttons?

Yep - memory keys are working.

Do you have MMI 3G ?with vag com you might need to chk the coding options and activate them.since you have the mem controlers on board and there are linked to your system then the connection of the mem buttons should work without coding.Mmi will need coding for extra options i guess.Buy the buttons and make the connection plug to the harness and do a test function to see if you have control over the memory functions.

No MMI - just Concert radio. My VAG-COM 10.6 software contains no labels for Driver Seat Memory module (J136) but some time ago I've managed to activate the seat memory with key fobs (i.e. setup 1 with fob 1 and setup 2 with fob 2), using info from various forums.

Anyone knows a good place to get Electric seats with memory? I have tried to watch on Ebay for very long time now but no luck yet.. Often they want to sell everything like seats, back seat, doorpanels etc.
I just need driver seat :)
