    Hi guys

    this is probably a very noob question but being this is my first beemer i know nothing about the cars at all

    i have a 1998 1.6 compact se
    full leather interior

    so anyway i was hoovering up today and i noticed as i got under the seat there was electrical wires underneath the seat so i checked the other seat and this was the same, both seem to have some sort of wiring loom going into them

    heres where im a little confused as i dont have heated seats........or atleast i dont think i do as i have seen no button to turn them on if i do

    thanks for any info guys, like i said i know this is probably a noob question but im new to the blue and white badge so expect some really stupid questions getting typed from this keyboard
