    You want S3 recaros, they are OEM and the prettiest by a mile, like mine (although mine are RS4)

    the OEM S3's are nice, but i'm partial to the Recaro A8s. there's more support on the shoulders and i prefer the way they look. and with your Ice Blue car get them in white with Ice Blue colour coded backs and they'll look mint...

    N8 do you mind if i ask how much you paid MJ for your retrim? i've got part leather S-Line seats and was wanting full leather with red double stitching

    My car is a SB and the seats are RS4s from a saloon so I don't have any trouble with access. But the 3door S3 ones are a right swine to move backwards and forwards, any S3 owner with them who says otherwise is a liar. I paid £1700 for full RS4 interior and sold all the other bits along with my front seats so it worked out quite well overall.

    N8 are the RS4's different in the sense of more functionality? Could have swore I read this somewhere before..

    Doesnt S3 buckets have lumbar????

    N8 do you have a shot of the buttons on the side? Want to know what to look out for if I search for seats.

    I'm thinking buckets wouldn't work out in my 3 door car as I'd probably explode if someone was to scuffed my interiror with their boots trying to get in and out.

    Thanks N8.

    Oh more gadgets!!

    What are the two switches on the left?

    Is the round dial on the right the electric forward and backwards adjustments?

    Do the RS4 seats fold forward ?
