Donít discount the heated factory GT seat as an option. I have been using a GT seat on my Ď02 RS for many years and have done well over 100,000 kms. A sore butt was part of the experience on the oem RS seat, but with the GT seat I can ride virtually indefinitely with no discomfort. I also purchased a GT right hand switch block (USD50.00)and wired this into the RS wiring loom so I have the factory seat controls. Wiring in the GT switch block is relatively straight forward, just a bit fiddly and time consuming but not difficult with a wiring diagram on hand. I documented the process on I-BMW but that info is now lost. GT seats come up in the classified section here from time to time and no doubt are available on eBay.
