Is it possible to retrofit electric seats?

Hi is it possible to retrofit electric seats to a 2014 ED4 Evoque that has Manual seats with the single electric adjustment?
I’ve searched here but I’ve failed to find an answer.
I Retrofited electric & heated seats to my base D3 in the past.

Thanks

Anything is possible. Might not be easy and it certainly won’t be cheap.

Oh I guessed it wouldn’t be cheap but there might be parts available form a scrap yard etc. It’s the “might not be easy” part that I’m wondering about. In the D3 it’s possible to do by swapping a few wires around.

If you don't want the memory part then you probably could get away with some power cables and the Electric seats. Adding the memory function will require ECU programming and door card inserts etc etc.

The door cards will cost you more than the seats!

Thanks for the replies. No need for memory module, basic full electric seats would be perfect. We currently have a FL2 and are looking at an Evoque ED4 but the seats will be a step backwards as the FL2 has electric seats with an armrest. I was wondering if the basic electric seats from a 2016 onwards would easily fit in a 2014. Better buy the car first lol

RE: Is it possible to retrofit electric seats?

You cannot fit an Evoque with seats with armrests unfortunately and to my mind a huge mistake not to have them. The Centre cubby on cars since 2014MY have a different design of cubby box lid that allows it to slide a bit and it is more comfortable to use as an arm rest, but not as good as the real fold up rests on the other cars. Is it electrically adjustable seats or electrically heated that you want because there are companies out in cyberspace that sell retrofittable heater cushions to replace the padding in an unheated seat base.

RE: Is it possible to retrofit electric seats?

As Tim mentions, Be careful on the 2016 to 2014 models, as many interior parts changed design and may not be fit compatible inter chaging them. You maybe better trying to get some seats from the same model year as yours if you really want, or buy one with the options you want.

RE: Is it possible to retrofit electric seats?

Thanks for all the replies, as it turns out we went to buy a 2014 Evoque that had only partial electric seats and ended up buying a 2016 Evoque with electric seats. Haven’t gotten it yet but the deal maker was the Landrover approved two year warranty.
I’m sure I’ll be a regular on here looking at various different things to do with the Evoque,
