    2017 Discovery TDV6 HSE Aintree Green

    Compared to my previous HID's the D5's LED's don't appear to be as bright and the adaptive bit is totally different, I understand that rather than the light 'swivelling', the new lights dont swivel, but change the light beam and pattern dependant upon driving circumstances and conditions.
    I tend to use the remote FBH or remote engine start over the timed climate, but that's probably cos I'm a luddite when it comes to 'techie' things Laughing

    Remote FBH?

    I loke the timed climate (if i remember to set it) since it doesnt use anywjere near the fuel and is near to silent. My other half would go mad if i started the engine for 15 mins at 6am before i leave lol

    2017 HSE Td6 with Capability plus pack, wade sensing, parking heater, armest fridge, head up display and surround cameras, 4 zone climate, black pack, privacy glass, adaptive headlamps, intelligent seat fold, deployable tow bar, side steps.

    I think you can retrofit heater steering wheel but will probably require a bit of wiring to get power to the heated element (as the power feed is unlikely to be on a non heated car) but if you get a complete wheel and the heater wheel control unit and its associated wires there is no reason why this cant work. Wont be cheap though! Also same would go for the fridge (cant see is needs any coding) and would require the power supply wiring but should be able to retrofit.

    The wiring loom is all there, all you need is heated steering wheel, fascia buttons and clock spring..its an easy job with the parts..JLR dont like retrofitting as they loose money....

    Well am taking the plunge as getting £12k off list price of the vehicle.
    Capability pack, surround cameras, 22” wheels, deployable tow bar, privacy glass and a few others.
    68 plate but MY19. In orange! Looking forward to it.

    This tread has been around a while. Has anyone had a go at fitting a heated steering wheel yet ? I am interested in the part numbers and trying it.

    No one has reported doing anything meaningful in respect of retrofitting, plenty of speculation, but it simply isn’t panning out.

    Like someone said, I don’t see why a physical upgrade like a heated steering wheel can’t be done. On a D3/4, it was purely physical, a new clock spring, heated steering wheel and replacement steering wheel control, no CCF alteration was required. However, it’s a big outlay if it doesn’t work because a D5 now requires it or some other complication.

    Thankfully, I be got a factory fit heated steering wheel, so the problem doesn’t arise.

    Well I now have all the parts to retrofit the heated steering wheel in a 2020 HSE. Will let you know how it goes this week.

    Well after much time and expense I can confirm that retrofitting the heated steering wheel is not possible. Even with all of the hardware fitted there is no way to enable the function with the Pathfinder software.

    If anyone does find a solution I will be interested to know how.

    I have. The issue is that the heated wheel module is lin bus unlike older models that were just plug and play.
    Not to be beaten though I will be making my own control system and wiring it to the wheel via the clockspring Whistle
