do you know if this works in the 3IS? i did this to my 2IS but haven't checked the duct configuration in the 3IS and the dealer currently has my car so i can't go out and check right now, although i'd sure like to.

Looking at the Lexus website, I thought you got heated seats with F Sport standard, but had to have leather seats to get both heated / ventilated?

Snapped some pictures for you of a 3IS under the drivers seat. Looks like you could fabricate some sort of pipe/sleeve to run from the duct to the fan. Enjoy

No, you do not have to get the leather seats to get them heated and ventilated. It's part of the Premium Package, which is available with NuLuxe.
