just wondering if anyone has retro fitted memory seats

I have a 04 cayenne 4.5 S with electric seats but no memory buttons

You know how annoying it is when then wife changes everything from the rake to the height not to mention the wing mirrors and rear view

Yes, Yes I know I should just hide the keys

do I need a new harness and or any new parts

Thanks for any help

I ran a few searches and no real answer. A dealer may be the best place to ask. As long as the memory settings are stored in the seat's electric system you should be able to do it -- but you may not be able to assign seat settings to specific keys. My '04 S has this feature -- mirrors and seat settings are tied to a key. I have two keys -- one for me, one for my wife, each with our specific settings. It's quite nice but just having the seat memory is nice -- which ideally you can retrofit just the harness to do. If not, ask if an entire seat replacement will do it. You'll be surprised how cheap used Cayenne seats are. People pull them from totaled vehicles or people dump stock seats for custom seats. I think all 9PA and 9PA1 seats are interchangeable. Also, call Sunset Imports (link here on Renntech) -- they can tell you and if possible can sell you the parts for a solid deal. They have used seats from time to time as well. All you really need is the driver's seat, the passenger's seat is not so crucial for memory settings.

Once set-up you'll get in and push (and hold) a button (you/your wife will have your own settings assigned to a button, 1, 2 or 3). The hold aspect of the button is a hassle -- when I meet my wife and only her key is around I push my button and I have to hold it for four to five seconds. Not the end of the world, just a hassle. It may be a safety feature.

Let us know what you determine and good luck!

Update -- I just saw that you are not in the US. In the UK you'll of course be looking for a right-drive memory seat, not sure if Sunset Imports would make sense in your case. But do ask a Porsche dealer.
