Hi

The VW web site is vague on what you get with leather seats. On the SEL I see that choosing leather removes the massage seat and the heated seat options but I thought the leather had heated seats in the front?

I read elsewhere on the forum that the seats are electric, but I think it is only on the drivers side? And there is memory, but how many settings can you store?

Sorry, I'm looking for detail before I feel comfortable spending quite a lot for that option.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Thanks Beagler.

My dealer just rang and told me that the leather seats are heated in the front and, as you say, only the drivers seat is electric. But they also said that the SEL doesn't have memory but the R Line does have memory for 2 settings...

When you say only the back and the base are leather, which bits aren't?

BTW, your spec sounds great. Similar to what I am thinking of but with even more. Very nice!

There are buttons on the right seat base. " SET, 1,2,3 " Manual says with ignition on and in N, hold SET for 1 sec then press 1 and a bleep will sound and seat and door mirror positions are stored. The bits that arent leather are the rest ie. Only the bits your bum and back rest on are leather. I think there is a note in the brochure.

Sounds strange, in Sweden if you choose leather, you get leather all around.
You aren't mixing it up with the microfiber seats?

Nope I had the same question as you and contacted vw customer service. Just email with the same question.
