    They do have different rear latches. The avant seats have a side mounted latch bolt, the saloons latch into the back.

    As for fitment, the seats are all the same size.

    The other consideration is that only saloons have lockable rear seats, although if you were to buy seats out of another saloon, you'd have a pig of a job swapping your locks over anyway.

    Just make sure you buy leather seats of the same style (ie: sports or 'normal').

    It would only need to be the rears that need recovering, although IIRC, there is a lot of stitching in the sports rears.

    i have sport seats, there is a compnay in the US that sells just the foam and leather from OEM seats (cheap shipping)
    can;t find the link, try google.

    you can buy foam inserts from Audi for next to nothing so even if you had teh wrong leather for your foam, you could get new ones

    im sure u can take the covers of the rear seats but i have seen a few sets of leather but all normal style seats not the sporty type, unless there dead cheap i'd be better off waiting for proper avant leather.............not that ive even bought one yet lol
