    Yes normally visible and no not adjustable, fixed in.

    Oh and I don't have kids either... Not that a kid will ever get to go in my car bad enough having my mates in there

    Every A3 produced has these and they are great!.
    I had to pay extra for them in my A4 but you try finding an S4 with them in!...grrrr...
    These hooks mean you dont need to use the seatbelt to fix a childseat in and it takes literally 2 secs to fit.
    The ones in the front seat do stick out a bit and are less prominent in my A4 but you would never actually sit on them anyway. Dont complain, its a £70 option on the A4 still!

    The Isofix package is optional atleast here in Finland, even though I did go for it..

    But the good thing is that I haven't found them to disturb me at all. Not atleast after the first time I saw them when I thought them to be a bit too visible. I suppose you get used to them /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I queried this when I collected the car.
    Very unsightly. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif
    Every passenger I've had in the car has hesitated and asked that they are before getting in.
    They're not visible on the back seats.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    I don't think they're that noticeable /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Just tell the passengers that it's a bondage thing and they're for strapping the wench in place /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif

    I have a child,but don't like the metal fittings on the passenger seat either !
    I prefer my child in the back.
