    Have just bought an S Line, should there be storage under both front seats?

    Storage under drivers seat only as standard on S-line. This is because the space under the passenger seat is reserved for the amp if you spec the B&O. You could probably buy the storage compartment from Audi to fit under here if you don't have B&O.

    I have a Sport and didn't spec the storage pack, so I was surprised to find I have the small storage compartment under the driver's seat. As I wasn't expecting it I didn't go looking for it and it was about three weeks before I found the latch while fumbling under the seat to make an adjustment to the seat angle. I still wish that the 8V had somewhere to store parking coins and the like - the 8P was well equipped in that department.

    According to the brochure the storage compartment under the drivers seat is standard equipment on the SE:

    "Storage compartments in the door side trims,
    in the centre console, and under the front
    passenger’s seat"

    So yes, you do get this as standard :)

    The standard storage under the drivers seat is meant for the first-aid kit - it's in the manual.

    My S Line has the storage compartment - Only problem is that the first aid kit is wedged in so tight, I can't get it out !
