I 2nd what the other poster said. Im from Atlanta, spent 18 yrs there but the prices can be a premium for this type of work. Id suggest looking outside of your immediate area. I wouldnt be surprised if you can find a reputable shop that can do it for $1000 OTD.

OP are you wanting the OEM heaters or aftermarket? You wont be able to get the OEM setup at all, but as said the aftermarket is easily doable.

heck I wish someone would come up with a way to get rid of the PWM controlled fans and put regular fans that are thermal controlled with a switch in the 1SS 1LE Recaro seats so I could use the seat heaters and air system in my car.

Were you able to purchase directly. When I checked their website it automatically directed me to a authorized installer. Would like to do it myself if possible.

How do you like the Katzkin? Was the comfort of the seat a big upgrade at all? Does it give a factory feel?

I got the highest package from Katzkin and installed the new leather + heater/cooler option.

Overall, everything looks professionally done and operates wonderful, the only downside is the power from the heater/cooler doesn't seem be that strong even on max setting, I scheduled it to be taken back and have it re-done to see if they can amp up the power a bit more.
