    Ok, so like 4 years ago i had an 89 prelude, i was an avid member of preludepower.com
    While i was there i learned that the little plastic pop-outs in the center console were for heated seats option.
    I also have those little plastic panel pop-outs in my in my 95 civic center console.
    (and i think every other Honda has them as well)
    The question is where the hell are the heated seats for a 95 civic/integra?
    Do they exist, or was it a 'we thought about offering it' type thing?
    I'm not sure i posted this in the right forum but i am really tired of googling for information on it and getting nowhere.
    Maybe some of you overseas or canadian guys can help out?
    The only heated seat info i can find was that they were in the 96 Acura 1.6EL in canada.
    :unsure:

    I think this whole "Heated Seat" thing is a figment of your imagination. I never heard of even Preludes with heated seats. Shit, Acuras didn't have heated seats until the krauts put them there.

    I'd more akin to think they are seat belt releases for automatic seatbelts as required in another country. Like, no USDM car will have them.

    Have you popped one out and looked? I'd be willing to bet that its just bolt access plates.

    Nah, they aren't bolt access plates...

    I know what you're talking about, and I haven't the slightest idea. I think they're there so that ricer jackass kids can have somewhere to mount their toggle switches for their neons.

    Excellent, :(
    Someone call Honda in JayPan and ask.
    I wanna know :(

    and Lmao!
    That's all i ever see in those slots, is light-toggle switches.
    I mean, sure it's a good place for a switch, but im sure something musta went there, or been available to go there?

    most cars have a pop out plate for putting switches, fog lights, cell phone wires, navi, whatever... hell, old trucks had those blanks for 4wd buttons if it was a 2wd model.

    I am sad.

    Get some old junk-yard seats from an american car, remove the heater coils and wiring, wire up a switch and presto - Heated seats.

    my Toyotas have heated seats, which is a vent that points at your crotch, and blows hot air on your package.

    the 4Runner can damn near burn you.

    :werd: I moved from central Illinois (where the weather can become quite shitty at times) to Michigan in the middle of winter, and it was a shock for me, so I'm sure it will be that much worse for you man...
