    Audi A3 Front Seats Interchangeable?

    Hi,

    I have recently purchased an Audi A3 Sportback Sport, 2011.
    I love the car but wish to buy some replacement (second hand) standard seats to replace the existing sports ones.

    I was wondering if standard seats from a 2008 Audi A3 Sportback (I have sourced some) are interchangeable with my seats?
    With respect to bolting straight in?

    An help with the finding out what year/models etc. have front seats that are interchangeable with my car would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards
    Rob
