On the other side of the steering wheel, Federal cars have a blank spot where the rear foglight button resides for ROW cars. That wiring is in place for all model years, and installing the rear fog light on Federal cars would be just a matter of getting the ROW switch and a fog light unit (replaces one of the two backup lamp units in a Federal car). This is the blank that the OP was talking about.

I have a 2011 without the heated seat buttons. But look at my seat it is heat ready?. I am sure many Evora's have the same set up. We need to know how to add buttons and wiring to make this work.

According to parts list there is a distinction between heated and non heated seats. Are you sure that wiring is fro heater? and not passager side useage to trigger airbag activation?

I have an ex lotus management car, late 2010 but with a 2011 chassis number. While I had the dash apart changing the head unit for an app radio,I noticed it had the wiring for the second row of switches. So I thought, buy an after market heated seat kit, put the relays in the spaces in the foot well and see how we go on. Last night I found my passenger seat has the same two wires as fasttoys, for the elements already plugged in. Checked the drivers side and nothing! Finally I found the seat base wire inside the seat, so managed to fish it out. However I have had the harness holes out to gain access to the back rest and no sign of any elements. So when the switch turns up it looks like I will have 1 1/2 heated seats!
Im still getting the courage together to strip the drivers back completely and just fit that pad from my kit to complete it.

My car is the opposite, The home link is better than my original opener.
