Lexus SC300 Reviews

I just purchased a 1994 Lexus SC 300 on 1/28/2012. It doesn't have the owners manual and was wondering where the switch is located for the heated seats.
Transmission wise when my car goes through a gear shift it sounds ragedy like something is grinding it drives me nuts what to do?
Driven many, many cars. This Lexus is probably top 3 cars for the money. 225,000 miles, looks and drives like new. Great car.
