    HELLO FRIENDS, GREETINGS!
    I WON'T APPEAR THROUGH HERE ...
    I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE YOU WITH A TIP, I CAN FIND A SEAT MODEL THAT MADE ME 100% HAPPY AND FULFILLED!
    I NEVER LIKED THE ORIGINALS OF 348, BASICALLY SEE 2 GREAT ERRORS IN THEIR PROJECT:
    1 = HEAD REST FAR FROM BEING FUNCTIONAL!
    2 = THERE IS NO GUIDE ON TOP FOR THE SAFETY BELT!
    TO SOLVE THIS I SEARCHED A LOT, MANY MEASURES WERE MADE IN MISCELLANEOUS MODELS;
    MERCEDES SLK 2015 SOLVED ALL THAT AND STILL ARE ELECTRIC!
    SHOW FRIENDS !, AND COST ONLY 770.00 US PAIR! (USED)
    ALSO I WANT TO SHARE KENWOOD'S ACTIVE SUBWOOFER TIP, GOT SURE ON THE MEASURES!
    GREAT HUG TO ALL AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Hi, interested in more information on the seats...
    1) with the electric motor, how much higher does the MB seat sit off the floor?
    2) not that familiar with those seats. Are the seat adjustment switches incorporated with the seats? Or are the switches separate, like an ML350, and in the door?
    3) I'm going to assume some small brackets are utilized to mount to existing floor mounts, or are other holes drilled out to accept MB seat rails?
    4) Power for the seats coming from cigarette lighter?
    More pics would be great!

    HELLO FRIEND!
    COME ON!:
    1 = I ELIMINATED THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT FUNCTIONS, INCLUDING REMOVING THE ENGINES OF THESE FUNCTIONS, THE SEAT WAS ON THE LOWER ADJUSTMENT AND WAS DONE WELDING LOCKING THAT LEVEL!
    2 = THERE IS THE 4-POINT BUTTON ON THE SEAT, I LET THE ORIENTAL POSITIONS FOR THE SEAT GOING FORWARD AND BACK, AND I LET THE POSITIONS FOR THE SEAT BACK UP AND DOWN !,
    ELECTRICIAN MAKES CONVERSION REQUIRED WITH SOME RELAYS
    3 = I WELD 4 SLK SEAT BRACKETS, ACCESS IS MUCH BETTER TO PUT OR REMOVE THE SEAT, JUST REMOVING THE BOTTOM OF THE SEAT AND SEE THE 4 SCREWS EASILY!
    4 = I HAVE ALREADY DRAWNED A BATTERY CABLE TO FEED THE SUBWOOFERS, PASSING THROUGH THE LIGHTER TUNEL, THEN I USED THAT SAME POWER WITH A 30 AP FUSE MORE!
    GO FOR MORE PHOTO!
    PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SPK RAIL SPACE IS BIGGER THAN THE 348, BUT THE TOTAL EXTERNAL WIDTH OF THE SEAT IS 99% SAME, I HAD NO PROBLEMS TO FIT!
    HUG!

    I went the easy but probably more expensive way and installed 355 B seats in my 348. I’ve only drove it about 10 miles with them(I’ve only driven it 42 miles in the last 2 years) but what an improvement. Much more comfortable, better headrest, and seatbelt guide etc. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    Alessandro, just thought I'd drop by a local Mercedes dealership to check out the SLK seats. My 'assometer' thinks they are great, very comfortable! I tried out some 'Designo' real leather ones and were fabulous. If I ever go that route I will look for the real leather ones. Never did like the ' MB Tex' seats.... although one would have to verify with the Recycler, as I'm sure most will think the MB Tex is leather! Nice choice!

    HELLO FRIEND!
    SURELY KOENING 1!
    MB SEATS ARE ANOTHER LEVEL!
    BEFORE INSTALLING THE 100% DISASSEMBLED, I GIVEN A RELIEF IN THEIR WEIGHT BY REMOVING UNNECESSARY THINGS, TYPE: AIRBAG, HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT MOTERS, HEIGHT SPRING ...
    DURING THIS PROCESS I FOUND THEM TO BE 100% LEGITIMATE LEATHER!
    COMFORT IS ANY REALITY!
    THE SEAT IS SLIGHTLY HIGHER IN ITS MINIMUM REGULATION, SOMETHING AROUND 10% HIGHEST IN THE CUSHION, I HAVE 176 CM OF HEIGHT AND IT WAS GOOD!
    ANOTHER SUPER COOL THING IS THE VERY SIMILAR APPEARANCE TO THE SEAT OF TOPS AND MODERN FERRARIS SEATS!
    ANY QUESTIONS JUST ASK!
    HUG!

    Hi 'Full', just received my SLK350 seats. Might you have a wiring diagram for seat motors.... just easier than pinning it all out. You're right, these are an upgrade, and almost new to boot!

    The caps lock is really annoying to read and hardly an individual style. Looks as ugly as those slk seats in a 348.

    Well, thanks for that... When your ass feels like it's on the pavement, perhaps a quality seat will be in your thoughts.... stay positive! Oh, and don't forget to let us know what you chose and how you installed them.... If the CAPS are 'yelling at you' well, you should know what to do!

    Its a sports car, your ass is meant to be on the pavement and the 355 seats are quality enough. I have challenge seats also so not much to share with you on the install. Regarding your caps comments, you should know what to do with is as well.
