For Audi seats to work OEM style you need:

Vw heated seat module
Heater panel with heated seats control (either standard, climatic or climatronic depending on your current equipment)
Custom wiring loom

If the seats are electric or partially electric I recommend getting thermal fuses too, for lumbar standard 15A blade fuse will do.

From the colors of plugs, my bet is green is heating, red is electric control, black occupancy sensor and yellow airbag.
I can dig out wiring diagram for ye lads if you want. It would help if you roughly knew what year was the Audi.

If the pin 4 in the red connector is red/black 2.5mm2 and pin 5 brown 2.5mm2 then this is your power for movement...

It's important you use proper gauge wiring as putting skinny ass ones under such load might cause them to over heat and melt. Use fuses too. Just a heads up

Are both your seats the same regarding electric control? I presume only backrest and lumbar are electric and movement is manual?
What year is your caddy? I'll post up the wiring diagram so you can work out whats what etc.

The loom will have everything ready to go (fuses, plugs etc.) you will just need to get the heater module and heater panel.
The loom will be ready for mostly straight forward plug and play application. You'll just need guts to strip few trim panels to fit it. You would also just have to follow my connection list and get someone with vcds to enable heated seats in BCM.
