    I agree with the comments below, the S3 Recaros are gorgeous.. But after having a few long road trips in them my **** was numb for a while lol!

    For me, i would want something that's aesthetically pleasing and comfortable.. So i'd recommend S5 seats. After sitting in them, they were a lot comfier than the S3 one's. But then again, that's from my experience.

    Aren't they the same seat? Just same design as TT/R8 & RS6s buckets?

    S5 seats are a good compromise I think!

    I was thinking S5 seats before, but not much more of an upgrade from the S-Line seats tbh, just the bonus of full electrics, plus you'd need custom runners, and think they'd be too wide for the A3 floor plan.
