I got a buddy at work that is looking for a aftermarket heated seat kit for his 07 sentra. He wants to install himself and had called a couple places where they wont sell him the kit as they want to install it too.

My question - are there any places in the city that will sell him juat the kit?

    I believe Phil @ Fast Toys sells them.  Iirc Visions sells them too.

                PartSource has a heated seat kit for ~$85/seat (comes with button and wiring harness) IIRC.

                    depends a bit on the vehicle but we usually charge 300 per seat (inlcuding the heater of course)

                      Installing them isn't very difficult; I did it in my vehicle (albeit with a more home-brew approach) in only an afternoon.

                        Install usually isn't cheap because it's generally time consuming. If you have a fair amount of mechanical skill you should be able to do it yourself. Don't get mad at me if you **** everything up though :p

                                  In terms of??? Quality? Heat Output? Life span?

                                  Realistically, in the many years I installed aftermarket ones I can't think of any complaints about heat output and I can't remember every having to replace one, or having one that was DOA.

                                    With the aftermarket ones I find the finish inside the car with the aftermarket switch does not look as nice, if you can tie it all together with the oem switch you probably couldn't tell the difference between an aftermarket and factory heated seat. Do the aftermarket seat heaters heat the back rest as well?

                                      Yes they heat both back and bottom.

                                        most kits do back and bottom.  There are kits that only do the bottom.  Gotta be sure to get the kit you want, as opposed to getting the kit you think you want.
