    Yes they are specific - see post #10 for part numbers.

    I don't use the sleeves, I find they deform the seats too much and aren't needed to locate the seat.

    My daughter always goes on the nearside, but I'm not sure there's a recommended side as such. Statistically that side would keep her away from oncoming traffic more, and of course it's also kerbside.

    Only if you swap the seat in and out the car on a regular basis.
    They are not so expensive and our isofix Seat came with yellow ones. Audi news are black - can always be added.

    I've been offered one (without sleeves) for £20 .. so I'm inclined to accept although your stats make me rethink as its a drivers side version ..

    Does anyone know whether this mod works on the convertible (or whether isofix was standard on the convertible?).

    Many thanks!

    I'm pretty sure it does, but just lift out your bench (bottom half of the back seat) and check for the mounting points on each side...

    PLEASE: do NOT try to fit front seat isofix / front seat child seats without a professional fitting a switch for the passenger airbag!!

    Just registered to say thanks to those who posted the useful information in this article.

    I own a 2005 A4 B7 saloon. I bought the parts for the left-hand side from pjmspeedy (about £80) who was excellent to deal with, so thanks to him too.

    My car DOESN'T have fold-down seats, so it was an absolute pain to put the bracket in place and get the torx bolts into the bracket without dropping them, but I managed to do it without taking out the rear bench after about half an hour of utter faff and swearing.

    Still, job done, and I wouldn't have managed it without the info, advice and pictures in this thread, so thanks very much! :thumbsup:

    I see that but which side is left? Look at car from front then the left is driver side. Look at car from behind then left is passenger side. Not very clear hence why I asked.

    No problem.

    Left is nearside, ie passenger side.

    Left and right is always stated as if facing forward from within the car.
