Im really disgusted with my fronts seats in my t3 2011 tdi lowline... driver side is ripped and I don’t like them . I got bored and took a walk in the recycling yard this afternoon . This is what I found . Seats from a tt s 2016 . Im sending the damaged passenger side for repair and will install the driver in my truck tomorrow night .

Did anybody swap seats in theirs ? Which seat do you use ? Troubles with wiring ? Thanks in advance

I find the seats in my '11 comfortable enough, no rips or blemishes either. If I were to ever change the seats I would only want to go with VW Treg seats in saddle brown rather than the black color they are.

I have those same seats in my Audi. So much better on a long drive. 2 hours is the max I can sit in the Touareg before It becomes unbearable.

I'd also like to know how the install went?
  • Did the seat mate with the rails?
  • Did you have to modify the seat or your truck?
  • Do the wiring harnesses for power and heat mate with those of the truck?

I'm in the process of retrofitting OEM European Touareg seats that are cooled and have adjustable bolsters.

Bolted on same holes , some wiring required ... took the old harness from the treg seats to do an hybrid with the tt harness so I don’t have to splice either the seat or the truck wiring . I have to figure something out for the seatbelt retractor part . The male part goes into the female seat part on the tt seat , I just have to find a way to bolt the third point (?) to the seat at the bottom . Sorry I’m french , it’s not easy to explain !

It sounds like the belt buckle receiver is bolted to the side of the seat, that shouldn't be a problem.
The buckle will probably fir but if it doesn't just swap the Treg one over.

We bought a 2016 cayenne gts for parts this week . We are going to receive it next week ... if the interior is better I will take these instead .

As stated in a previous post , we received a smashed gts 2016 Cayenne today . I will get the complete interior and fit it in my truck . It’s complete with matching back seat , ventilated and massaging , which I tend to believe is more in concordance with the spirit of the truck ... sporty comfort over sport .

The tts seats were good but would be a better fit in a smaller car . I will sell them to pay for the gts ones
