    A4 Seat Upgrade

    Hi everyone,

    I've got manually operated sports seats in my A4, which i find uncomfortable on long trips as I'm really tall, and the bit you sit on (squab??!) doesnt support my legs properly.

    Does anyone know if I can swap the manual seats straight for electric ones? I understand that you can adjust the seat bottom forward and back on the electric ones which might cure the problem. Would they just plug straight in to the existing plug underneath the seats (which i guess is there for the airbags in my seats)?

    If not has anyone got any other bright ideas? Would A6 seats fit? I guess they should be a bit bigger!

    Thanks in advance guys,

    Rich

    No & no I'm afraid. Audi's aren't prewired for anything that's not fitted as standard. I changed the whole interior in my A4 (B6) and there were spare slots for additional connectors for full electric seats, fortunately the leather/alcantara seats weren't electric apart from the lumbar support (which is standard on the B6), so it was a straight swap.
    A6 won't fit as the rails are diffferent

    You might consider a good aftermarket seat, e.g. Recaro then when you change the car you can take the seat with you.
    Have a look at: http://www.recaro.com/englisch/index_frames.html

    hi , first post here btw

    250 quid for the pair thats a pretty good price huh.

    might end up being one of my first mods seeing as my driver seat is badly worn.
