Guide: Retrofitting seat heating

If you have a seat heater, you don't want to miss it in winter. But not all cars are equipped with this extra. The accessories trade offers Comfortable warmth for retrofitting from around 20 euros.

These are heating mats that are placed on the seats and fastened with straps. They receive the power via the 12 volt cigarette lighter, whoever wants to warm the driver and front passenger needs a double plug for this. It is important to pay attention to a temperature selector switch and overheating protection when buying, a TÜV or GS seal is also recommended.

Retrofit solutions from professionals are more beautiful and long-lasting: Many car upholstery shops offer to integrate thin heating mats into the seat. However, this is more expensive than the simple solution.
