Can anybody tell me what other Honda/Acura models' front seats will interchange with those in my 2003 Civic Si?

My car does not have power/heated seats. Would its wiring harness include a feed for that should there be power/heated seats that will interchange?

Thank you.

Your Si would not include any sort of wiring for power or heated seats. If you wanted heated seats, there are aftermarket options for this. There might be aftermarket options for power seats, but to me this would be a complete waste of money.

That's fine. I really wasn't looking to install powered or heated seats, I just wanted to know if there was a feed for them in case I found a set that would fit in the car. Thanks for the info.

So, what I still need to know is - What manually-operated seats will fit in my car without alteration of seat or car?

If it were me I would just look under the seat and see if there are any harnesses unattached and just laying there, and then I'd go over to a Honda-centric board and/or buy a repair manual for my car and figure it out.

I believe the bolts used would be universal, but the bolt pattern might not be. For instance, I also had a 03 Si and I swapped out the OEM seats for leather seats from an RSX Type S (leather). 3 of the 4 bolt holes lined up perfectly, but the inner rear needed a bracket made. Also, my Si seats did not have side airbags and the RSX seats did. I could not get the side air bags hooked up. I believe some EP3s had side air bags, but I do not believe the connector is the same as the Acura one. Lastly, if you do swap seats, be mindful of your SRS. If you swap seats, but do it incorrectly, your SRS light might fault which means your air bags will not deploy if needed.


Since I doubt there is a complete list, your best bet would be to find the seats you want, check out a forum specific to that vehicle and have someone measure the location of the holes. This way you can determine if it will match up.


Another option which I am not 100% familiar with, but I know people have done it, is to remove the actual rails from your EP3 seats and then attach the rails to your new seats. This way bolt holes line up and such.
