I bought a set of leather power seats expecting they would just bolt in and hook up w/out any problems but my bmw (93 318i) is only wired for manual heated seats so can I just run some power source straight from the batter?

Yuck! That sounds like it may be more trouble than it's worth? What seats did you get? I'm not familar with that car's interior... at all... but how are the tracks lined up? Would you have to bolt new ones in?

Could you return them, possibly?
