    Just fitted my new seats,WOW,what an improvement over them SE back breakers.Hold you really snug and the adjustable lumbar support is very nice.

    The back breakers.....

    I just powered them up so i can adjust them.Its very easy just two wires.I need to get a climate with heated seat switches and the memory switch in the door.Im not in any rush for them as im the only one who drives the car and the seats arent cold.These will help on my drives down to watford,they are so comfortable and all for £150.

    Finally got the back ones fitted,it was a right job to fit these as my original back seats did not fold down and i had to remove this big piece of metal..

    then i had to line up all the brackets and bolt them in,this is how they look,I love the interior now...

    No.My original ones match the seats really well so i dont mind.I was going to get a leather arm rest but that matches well too so i wont bother with that either.Thanks for the replies guys and it was well worth getting the jigsaw out.Now my seats fold down the boot looks massive.Good old Ebay.

    I was looking for sports interior,never thought i would get S4.All my replies have been "rarer than rocking horse to get",might aswell just get sports.I found them because the bloke was selling an A4 steering wheel and i looked at his other items.Good luck.
