    Hi,

    I have recently purchased an Audi A3 Sportback Sport, 2011.
    I love the car but wish to buy some replacement (second hand) standard seats to replace the existing sports ones.

    I was wondering if standard seats from a 2008 Audi A3 Sportback (I have sourced some) are interchangeable with my seats?
    With respect to bolting straight in?

    An help with the finding out what year/models etc. have front seats that are interchangeable with my car would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards
    Rob

    Hi Rob
    Yes seat will bolt straight into place.
    Some wire connections may have to be changed if they are heated or electric, but don't quote me on this.

    Thanks heaps for the replies.
    All very helpful.
    Out of curiosity do Audi sell seats as replacements?
    Brand new?
