im looking at a 1.8 with cloth seats no heat. i have a 2.8 with leather heated seats. the driver side is also power.can i install the 2.8 seats and get the heat and the power to work.
-my 2.8 has a blown motor so i would have everything.

passengers side will fit since its a manual. The drivers will require some modifiication to the floorboard since the power seats mount w/ 4 tabs versus 3 on the manual seats. You can easily get the power and heat to work by splicing wires from the fuse box and a manual switch. Be safe use a relay..and a seperate fuse holder as im not sure how much the power seats and heater draw.
