12 way electric seats.

Postby m4pdy » Sun Apr 05, 2015 7:11 am

Hi all,


Just wanted to clear up a rumour. I have bought a scirocco and love it. It has electric seats but apparently most don't have the 12 way electric drivers seat like mine, has my car got a rare option then? It's great as I have discovered if you push the chair forward it rockets forward and back until it reaches my seat arrangement then stops.

Thanks,

Paddy

It's a rare option because it's not too difficult to pull the lever and slide the seat, I have it on mine, it's ok but I wouldn't of paid for it new, it doesn't have a memory function for different drivers, adds weight and complexity on something rarely used.

What he said ^^^^^^

Once your seat is at the desired position it's rarely moved again.

Can beat good old trusted pull lever :yes:
Theres no such thing as "grey area" im just plain and simple "black & white"

It's one of the cheapest options and I considered it when speccing mine but decided against it as it was only the driver's seat and pretty pointless as I rarely move the seat.

i've got one but probably wouldn't have specced it if i'd bought new. have to say i do like it though, tilting the bottom seat pan is a really nice touch, can get really wedged in! does need a memory function though.

I know this is old, but OMG! no memory function, I was thinking of doing this as a nice lil upgrade... just for the mirror tilt lol. won't bother now though.

You only need electric mirrors for mirror tilt.
