    Split folding seats in Non split folding car

    Hi all

    Does anyone know if it is possible to fit a set of 60/40 split folding rear seats into a A4 saloon that does not have split folding rear seats?

    thanks

    Yes its been done before, trouble comes with the rear seat mounts iirc so make sure you look for avant seats if you've got an avant and saloon seats if you've got a saloon to save bother!!

    I thought I would have to cut the pannel not to bothered about that, but does the rear seats work exactly like a factory standard 60/40 seat after it is fitted?

    Once all the brackets are fitted yes.
    It's amazing how much crap you can fit in there once you drop the back seats.

    At least it was an option!

    A few years ago we were thinking of an Alfa 156 but split fold seats weren't even available.

    i agree. shame it wasn't standard..i find the a4 no good for airport runs.. i can't get the cases in...theres enough room in the boot but because of the opening being restrictive you can't actually get the cases in. if the seats could fold it'd make it so much more useful.
    Plus i do alot of house alarms/rewires on my days off, and fitting 3m lengths of trunking in can be a twat! hence why i got myself some roof bars!
    should've bought a navara in all honesty!
