    Anyone knows if the full leather bucket seat option from Audi is:

    1. electrically adjustable
    2. height adjustable
    3. backrest angle adjustable
    4. fully leather wrapped (including the back)

    and I think your right!

    No buckets have leather backs, dont even think they have electrics as an option either. Dont have airbags either.

    Pete has it spot on. The backs are shiny black plastic.

    Thease are not RS4 Buckets, they are RECARO Pole positions in full leather.
    They will not fit a 3 door car because you can not move them back or forward, thus noone can get in the back...

    True, they are optional on the B5 RS4, Jules has them in his. Very nice. But not pleasing to the eye like the B7 buckets.

    They are (optional) RS4 buckets, but from the B5.

    Losing the rear seats seems like a fair price to pay!

    Admittedly with "RS4" stamped all over them, they do look better in an RS4...

    Who ever said these are not rs4 buckets,were WRONG,these were an option for the b5 rs4,no one in the uk had them but i got a set from germany stamped rs4 and from audi,i had the whole interior retrimmed in audi silver nappa.
    These are for the real Hardcore driver:lmfao:

    I think the b7 seats are the business but in a b5 you lose alot of rear legroom,with the poles you have more leg room and save stupid weight,
    I think my daughters baby seat bucket is the best ha ha,trimmed in nappa of course
