    hey guys..new to the forum, but not so new to audis..but i am new to swapping the seats, so it goes like this. I have a 96 b5 2.8 quattro 5 speed and it has power and heated seats, but only power on the driver side..so heres my problem, i bought some seats off of a dude and there all power, he said they were off of a b5 so im assuming a newer model. The mounts are different on my car and wont except the seats..the new seats have a singular track in the center and my car does not..so my question is...can i swap the track from another car to mine or is the chassis built like that?

    any help would be appreciated...thanks

    Those seats are not from a B5. All B5 seats have the same sliding mechanism with tracks either side. Nothing is impossible with some welding but surely it would be easier to buy the correct seats for your vehicle?
