    Thanks, it appears to not be there on some photos. Do later cars use a different system?

    Mine are in the doors (2011MY). I presume all Sports have them in the seats then?
    2011 GranTurismo GTS Auto - 50,000 miles coming up this year, a truly complete car
    2005 4200GT - loved it despite everyone saying the manual was shite
    1999 3200GT - liked a lot of it but honestly never got on with the steering

    From a quick gander at some examples on Autotrader it looks like the earlier Sports have this and later ones don't. Not sure of the crossover but my 2014 reg car does have them in the doors.

    Thought I knew a lot about the GranTurismo but didn't know that.

    Yep by then I think they talked people who wanted the MC box into upgrading to the Stradale.
