Not that I'm aware of, but it never hurts to ask nicely. You never know!

...I am still waiting to hear more complaints.

How easy is the heated seat electrical installation? Do they really not fit, or is this just someone being overly picky?

Got mine yesterday, and just finished putting in the front pair. They fit really well, and I took pics as I installed them, so I will endeavor to have a DIY thread up by tomorrow. The heaters came pre-installed in the front seats, so a quick check by running your hand under the cover to make sure they stayed in place (they didn't budge), and plugging the upper to the lower (super easy) was all it took.
Gonna grab some lunch, then go put in the rears.

I am curious if you could take a picture of the switches as well as how you ended up wiring into the vehicle system. Is there any way to wire it so the car actually reads the power consumption?

Charcoal with light gray piping, and the 0 Emissions logo in blue.

I haven't yet tackled hardwiring the heaters in, going to use the 12v accessory plug for a bit, since I'll need a new control module (the supplied one is also the 3-level switch, which I will want to integrate), and some new switches. Still doing my homework on the setup that will work for me, and will have to set aside the time and funding. Besides, one project was enough for one day! ;)

The back seats were a piece of cake.
I'll try to get the install thread together asap, but have errands to do today, and going to the premiere of "Revenge of the Electric Car" tonight with the Seattle Leaf group. Stay tuned!

Rake, your front seats look great and good to hear that the installation was easy. I am looking forward to my delivery. Hopefully this week.

Got a phone call today that the covers are ready; installation at the Wet Okole store is scheduled for this Saturday afternoon.

FWIW I ordered by phone on May 19; I went with the light gray/cobalt-pipe option that seems to be popular on the forum for the Ocean Blue. No idea if they are making these on a FIFO basis, or batching by color choices.

I do not remember if this was posted before but those of you who have received your covers did you receive an email with a tracking number when they were shipped?
