You might try calling Shokan (new and used Audi parts) 800-255-2834
I've never purchased anything from them, has anyone else out there?
I just noticed thier add in the back of an Autoweek.
If you want to do it the cheap, quick, and easy way, Citibank shopper
catalog sells seat heaters that plug into your lighter. I don't know
how well they work, I just noticed it while doing some holiday catalog
shopping. If you don't have a Citibank Visa Card then I don't know.
I must say though, heated seats are the way to go. :)
