Default Adding ventilated seat option after purchase

My brand new 2013 sport, has the leather bucket seats, with the heat option. It didn't come with the factory ventilated seat option but, I would like to add it in.

Since it's just the installation of 2 fans, and 2 switches, I was wondering if anyone had an idea if the correct wiring harness would already be under the seat for the ventilation option?

Any info is appreciated!

I'm only guessing, but if you have the factory heated seats, I would think all the wiring for the seat coolers should be there too. I added them to my 2010, all the wiring was there. You are aware that the ventilated covers are different, with the holes in them to pass the air?

Did you replace the covers too?

The leather bucket seats I have, seem to have some sort of mesh in the middle of them. I was guesstimating that this is the same seat used for the ventilated seats, since they're not solid leather across the seat/seatback.

I have the fake leather with the cloth/mesh inserts. Could I add the ventilated seat option? Do I need to add the heated AND ventilated option? Do I need the real leather seats?

I replaced both entire seats with 2011 take outs I found on ebay. I ended up adding heat/cooled leather seats with passenger power for about $700.
