    Just a random thought.

    My 2003 C class 320 has the part electric, heated leather seats. I do however miss the memory function I had on my previous Saab.

    Assuming I could find two good and matching seats what else do I need apart from a new door card. Presumably I need some electronics to control the memory functions?

    Thanks.

    Probably cheaper to sell yours and buy one with memory seats.

    I did look but not that many around, Mercedes are, as I am finding out all fairly unique in how each model left the factory so I bought on a combination of specification, condition and price.:thumb:

    I share your frustrations my friend.

    I have an E-Class estate with COMAND DVD TV. Just the freeview module for the TV alone was £550. Heated memory electric seats are £350, yet it hasn't got them??!!

    I really do wonder what people are thinking when they spec their cars.

    Hmm someone spends money on a system for watching TV on a small screen in a car with variable reception that can only be (legally) used when stationary but not on something more practical and far more (in my opinion) saleable later on! :confused:

    Mine has the electric seat adjustment on the sides of the seats but to move it backwards and forwards you have to pull the lever at the front and push/pull the seat to/fro! I also find it amazing what some people order when buying a new car! Not that I am ever likely to have that dilema:wallbash:

    It the days when Mercedes were notoriously stingy with standard kit and options were extortionate, cars were specced even more oddly. I have seen on ebay a mid 1980's W126 with electric seats front and rear, but still having hand-cranked windows all round!
