    I love having heated seats in my cars, but I would love to have them cooled too.

    Are there aftermarket kits out there for this that will allow me to keep the heated portion?

    Cooled seats would require some sort of ducting to the car's a/c system or refrigeration piping through out the seat making it the evaporator coil. I have honestly never heard of such a thing.

    Cooled seats are just a fan beneath cushion.

    My lexus has cooled seats, and I believe it is just a fan, or so I thought, never looked to deep into it.

    BMW's use ventilated seats, as well as Mercedes I would assume

    Its kind of nice, but it doesn't work near as good as heated seats though

    They're also available on some not so luxury vehicles like Tahoes.

    My E55 has ventilated seats.. they keep the back from sweating but definitely not "cooled" seats.. However I was in a brand new Lincoln Navigator the other day and the cooled seats in it were the shiz..

    They sound nice. I've never tried them, though. Never thought they worked great but based on the comments above, they do. Pretty cool!! (Pun intended, LOL).
