    We have a new 90D and 2 other cars with heated seats and they get quite warm even on the low setting. We noticed that even on 3 the next gen seats in our 90D just get luke warm and maybe because we are sitting in them. The 1 & 2 settings seem useless. We had a loaner with the original seats and they got HOT quickly. Wondering if it
    could be a malfunction. SC said that they couldn't tell because it was hot out the day I had my car in. Any advice?

    I have had heated seats in all my Audis and Porsches for the last decade, and the hearted seats of my new 90D seem to provide plenty of heat in comparison. Only wish I had the ventilated option available on the P (doh!).

    Probably worth checking out some of the units at your local SC and see if the issue is unique to your car.

    Was getting my '17 MS100D uncorked at the SC this week. They gave me a '17 model X for the loaner.

    The heated seats on the X was significantly warmer. I typically have my MS on level 3 on a 40-degree day like we had that day. My MS is warm but certainly not hot. On the MX I could not leave it on level 3 as it was so hot.

    It's not a huge deal but apparently there is some significant variability in the heated seats. Anyone else notice this?
