    Straight in, as far as I know. But I *think* that the VR-4 loom doesn't have the redundant wiring and plugs for electric seats. I don't think heated seats were an option in the later UK cars, but if they are heated and you want that element to work, you'd be as well getting the heated seat switches and the centre console cup-holder which houses the switches, as well as as much wiring as possible. The electric adjustment side is all built into the seats themselves, so they should only really need a power supply, I would have thought.

    Obviously, make sure things are fused, etc. There might be more useful info in the wiring diagram too.

    Just to add 2 pence to already explored left right and centre subject, make sure you get rear bench hinges, things that hold seats up. I cant remember which combo got what (FL vs PFL or UK vs JDM) but they could be thin or thick ones and are PITA to get separately.

    Think Adam is on about the U-shaped latches which hold the seat back upright. If you're going to be side-by-side with the donor car, it should be easier to check.

    If it’s saloon then rear side Bolsters are different and not fit without mods

    And as Nev said u shape latches varies so look and you should be able to see difference
