New Seats / Heated ??

Hello All
I have a 1999 SLK without heated seats
is it possible to change the seats for heated ones?
also is it possible to change the seats for something else that are more "bucket" the OEM ones i seem to slide all over.
What are my options please???

Not to be a wise guy, but anything is possbile if you want to spend enough money. I am sure you can find heated SLK seats, and wire them and install switching in the dash to turn them on and off.

Your other question is much easier. There are many brands of sport seats that will hold you in place with aggressive bolsters. Recaro seats are a well known brand. I put a link below to a site that sells many brands of sport seats including Recaro. You would have a lot options for after market sport seats, including the brand and who to buy them from.

The later model seats (after 2001) are supposed to be more supportive. You might want to try a set.
