    If anyone with an A8 can measure the width (centre to centre and inside to inside) between the two rails on the floor that the seats sit on.

    Even if the electrics are different, I'm pretty sure the connectors could be adapted / spliced, but the rails can't be.

    I'm not happy with comfort levels in S-Line seats in A6 C7, so looking to buy some A8 seats. If ventilation and massage can be connected up, great, but this would be bonus.

    Any help is appreciated.

    probably best adding what shape of A8 you are looking to get the seats from...they may be different sizes too.

    Third gen called D4. Its still the latest generation I believe despite having a recent facelift. I'm just looking to do the front seats only, unless back seats will work too.

    OK, they will fit! The seat runners that bolt down to the chassis are according to etka the same across the (C7 A6, RS6), (2011 A7, RS7) and (D3 A8) range.

    Thanks B5NUT. Do you know if there is any chance of hooking up ventilated seats and massage function / retro fit if the seats have capability? I'm keen to find some A8 seats on eBay to improve comfort in my A6. I rode a Golf RMotion with leather seats and it was so much more comfy than my A6.
