    Afraid not Sean, most people fit Recaros, OEM S3/RS4 or aftermarket CS:

    S3/RS4s:

    Which Recaros are these and also remind the , the ones in the TT roadster? Look v snug and I bet you'd save a good 25-30 kgs with those seats over standard.

    Yes they are Recaro CS, they weigh 15kg each as opposed to 30kg in the TT, made alot of difference and they are VERY VERY comfortable.

    Always liked them. I like that they're rare + whenever i see them I think to myself I can make one of them look sweet. That ones lovely but I'd loose the chrome grill for alu one then it's perfect :wub:

    yup airbagless!! :)

    you get a special capacitor which just shorts out the airbag error light!

    The OEM seat weighs 25 kilo grams. These things weigh 12 kilos!! Remove two and thats a fair bit of weight saving!!!!!

    These are the Recaro Sportster CS.

    These are the OEm stuff you get on the Ford Focus RS, the Lotus Evora and also the Renaul Clios and Megane (sports and special edition cars)

    they are actually REALLY REALLY comfy and I honestly think much better than OEM audi seats. I am not keen on the OEM audi Seats. I actually think my MKV R32 has better seats than the Audi Jobbies.

    You just need to trim to lug locators off the bottom, and its a straight fit. I've wired up all my bolsters so they are fully electric and inflatable :wub: Yours a sportback or 3 door?
