Thanks to stg2lgcy00 for the shroud. We just had to come up with a make shift prop rod holder. Found one that works very well and holds it in the proper position.

A quick guide to hooking up heated seats

The car is half pre-wired for heated seats. On the actual RS wiring diagrams it shows that the relay controls the rear "12 Volt Accessory" on the wagons (rear cigarette lighter plug). On the WRX diagram it showed the relay in the exact same position, same wiring configuration as well but instead of going to the rear it went to the heated seats. I wanted to make sure my car wouldn't burn to the ground (do a quick search on rs25 and you'll see what I mean) so I traced back all of the wires from the relay position. It is properly fused and runs on the same system as the accessory wires run on. This is a good thing because you could leave the switch on when your car is off and then remote start your car and the seat will be on (but stay off when the car is off). To see if you have the relay you're probably going to have to take off the glove box.

It is a pink base and the relay itself should be pink in a white holder. You're going to have to get a relay from a different car but it'll be easy to find. Just find any Subaru that has the pink coloured relay and you'll be fine. The only one's you can interchange with this relay on the RS are the ABS relays. They're the exact same.

Here is just the relay plug:

And here is where it should be around:

There is only one wire of concern to you coming out of that plug. It should be a blue wire that leads to a plug behind your passenger side kick panel. It is in the top position. You'll see the wire on one side of the plug but not the other. This is what I mean by half wired. This is your power wire for your seats. The plug pictured below is the one that will NOT have the blue wire in it. The matching plug to this one will. Also make sure you run the wiring with the rest of the wires. This was just for picture purposes. Don't leave it behind that bracket.
