Our company got the poverty pack Euro with leather interior thrown in. The leather seats, back seats and door trims etc looks the same as the luxury model minus the controls for the electric seats controls. I think all up we paid about $700.00 more per car for the leather option. We got a great deal as the Honda dealer was desperate for our business!!!hehehe
I wouldn't advertise how much we got each Euro for, as this will depress the second hand market when we flog our Euros in 2-3 years time.
What i was thinking was to have the manual adjusting ratchet and the adjusting rail from the base model euro's seats and use them to replace the motorised operations of the leather seat. however if its not too hard to hook up the motorised adjusters then i might wire it up. Gunna not bother with the heating features at all.
Another thing i have to address is how well the cloth trims of the armrest and the doors will go with the leather, not too sure if im going to retrim them myself with leather or another fabric yet. still figuring out the possibilities
Why don't you contact some Honda wreckers and see if they have the wiring connector for the electric seats (and the arm rest)? I'm assuming once you have the connector all you need is to splice it to a power source (and ground), plug it in, and you have electric seats (since the switches are on the seat base, right?)
wonderin if there are any auto-electrian spec sorta people on this group. but i think i have installed my drivers seat belt buckle incorrectly. when does the Steering wheel airbag light turn on and why? im swapping whole interior to leatherand the only thing is missing is the driver's seat.
the leather driver seat i got has no seat belt buckle and from looking the wires the power and ground feeds to the seat belt buckle as well. i tried swapping my buckle over to the leather seat, but gave up n put the suede seat back together. during the process i did take out the battery in between seats but now ive got a nice airbag light fml.
^ If there issent any thing that is required to be plugged into the seat and its not in - and you have disconnected the battery before installing the seats then u should be fine. what u need is to clear the SRS codes by using the paperclip tapping. Seeing as u have sport seats not luxury leathers without any other extra wiring/features then just a code clear should be enough. Let me know if it doesnt go away though.
Also - see if u swap the orignal suede front passenger seat back in and if the srs code does not come on anymore u know its that seat that is the problem.
im 99% finished with my seat swap. Front driver seat is in and all power motors working fine. wasnt easy to deciper the wiring diagrams. rear seats are in i just gotta get my front passenger seat leather material swapped over with the suede and ill be finished. Got a booking with a retrimmer for $140 this coming thursday.
AND NO MORE STUPID PLUSH SUEDE REVEALING EVERY BLOODY DUST PARTICLE MAKING INTERIOR LOOKING FILTHY

thanks mate, will try and reinstall the original seats and see if the airbag light goes away, i have been told to take the internals of the original suede seat and swap it with the sports seats, sounds like too much work though
