i've not had a ton of cars with heated seats, but in order of
speed to level off, slowest to fastest, they are:
'87 volvo 240DL
2k A4 avant 1.8
'06 A4 avant 2.0
'02 benz G500 convertible
the benz is a minute or two faster than the new avant. it's less
adjustable, though. two settings - nice and warm, and level two. level
two cranks up super hot but then automatically downshifts to level one in
