    I just wanted to say, I thought in a million years, Id never like heated seats or ever have a use for them. I hate every thing that's hot (except Hilton). Hot pillows, bed, toilet seats, hot racking, hot days, so on and so forth. With that said, my seat has been on nonstop since winter began. I will state that I have lower spine problems, so a 30 min. ride was not uncommon for my back to get agitated. The heat has made an enormous difference on how I feel when I get to work now. In the end, I didn't realize the value in them, but dam glad I got them.

    I could have gone either way with the whole P&T package but my wife put her foot down on heated seats and dual zone climate. Since I was forced to have the heated seats, you're damn straight I'm going to use them. I actually don't use them much, but post snowboarding they are so damn nice to have.

    Can't wait to have a clean way to add them. I wanted heated seats/ dual climate control/ auto headlights, but not as badly as I DIDN'T want a sunroof. I really really hate the way that they bundled the options on the Tacoma.

    I've been eyeing those too. I think the auto headlights will be pretty much plug and play as well. Not so with the dual climate control/ thermostat.

    The heated seats hands down put my former prius to shame. They heat up very fast and hot. I use them quite a bit. Feels good on the back.

    What s everyone's hate on for the sunroof?? I love my sunroof, AND my heated seats. I open the sunroof, I crank the heated seats, even in the summer :D (or at least that's the plan)

    I love mine to. I think there only hatred of the sunroof is for tall people. It does take away a LITTLE bit of room.

    They were nicer on my VW TDI which took forever to warm up the motor, but not super necessary on the Taco which warms up much faster. That said, the one time I got done with a winter hike and got partially immersed, they were heavenly... ;)

    I especially like the ass-melting volcano setting that is number 3.

    I would have paid for them if I could have bought just the seat warmers. I did not want to pay for all the other stuff that came with them. That being said with cloth seats I haven't really felt the need to have them, leather is a different story
