    B5 interior options

    Hello all

    What options are about for nicer seats in the B5?

    Do any seats from other models fit?

    Obviously you have S4 leathers (noice!) but they are mega expensive

    B5 Passat front seats APPEAR to have the same rails as ours so may fit, but don't know for definite. Rears I imagine are completely different. B4 (Audi 80) fronts should fit too.

    Dark grey with some funky multicoloured bits. Like these:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-A4-S4-SPO...es_CarParts_SM

    Mine too has a tear in the driver's bolster but no where near as bad as those in the ad. Should patch up nicely.

    Anything will fit if you have the skill and determination(or large wallet)

    Currently been looking for some custom front leathers for a while, have a couple of sets in my sights right now.

    Is the rear a 3 headrest style?
    Was it a direct fit, or did you need to tweak it due it being from an avant ?

    I'm guessing its a saloon interior, as there doesnt look like a centre headrest?

    It was an option on the TQS and S4, so it'll be saloon spec fittings with the two headrests...

    I wish I had the recaro's! Its funny that you have the prefacelift clocks though. I have the ones with the digital clock.
    Are the dash buttons pre or post facelift?

    They're not prefacelift clocks.

    Digital clock came in with immo3, sometime in the middle of 2000, nearly a year after the facelift occured.

    trouble is I find the recaros above in either leather or cloth arent actually any more supportive during "spirited" driving than the stock seats I have.
    best thing I bought was a CG lock. still planning on trying to freshen up the seats though.

    Im with you on this one mate, especially at the going rate for an RS4 leather interior.

    Im going for "old skool" Recaros instead, awaiting a delivery then all will be revealed.......

    Yeah I have one of these "extra special limited run off edition blah blah blah 180bhp edition 1.8T's" too. Just my clocks have a digi clock not the analogue like the prefacelift. I notice it has the facelift DIS though so as Aregon says the clock must have been updated later.

    It wasnt a "run off" model, it was produced from the start of the facelift till the end of B5 production, ie 2 years.

    It was a special edition though. Only the TQS got the boleros, the half leather interior, the white dials, the 180hp engine etc.

    I would not really say it was a special edition as it was just sold along side all the others and was not limited to a specific number. It was just another model, just like how the s4 was the only model to get Avus alloys it was not really a special edition either.

    If it was a special edition it would not have then been sold throughout the whole facelift.

    I think its just some people on these forums think its more special than it really is which make people believe it was a special edition.

    Ye perhaps your right. Other countries got 1.8T Quattros throughout the B5 run, which had the normal "sport" pack, same that comes on the FWD 1.8T Sports. The TQS was "special" insofar as it was the only UK 1.8T model to have quattro, and its trim (seats, wheels etc) was unique to that model alone.

    It also has some suspension tweaks lifted from the S4, which other quattros (ie the v6's and tdi's) didnt get.
